Mumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has been ranked number one by revenue among the Top 30 Suppliers of Software and IT Services to the UK Market by TechMarketView1.
The report is compiled through a detailed analysis of the UK revenues of over 200 publicly quoted and privately held companies. TCS has moved up from last year’s second position. The company performed very well in the revenue rankings by sub-category as well, topping the Applications Operations category, and ranking #3 in Consulting, and Solutions.
According to the report, TCS has used the pandemic to re-energise its proposition and positioning within the wider marketplace. It goes on to say that the core role given to innovation continues to be central to TCS’ identity and positioning within the SITS market, and this has worked out well for TCS over the last couple of years. The report highlights that a key part of TCS’ response to Covid-19 has been its accelerated transition to what it calls Secure Borderless Workspaces.
Marc Hardwick, Research Director, TechMarketView, said, “2020 saw TCS become the largest Software and IT Services provider in the UK topping TechMarketView’s ranking for the first time, a real testament to how resilient and innovative the business has become as it continues to grow and nurture an enviable UK client base.”

This achievement encourages us to continue investing in the region’s economy, innovation, technology sector, and in developing workforce skills.”
