TCS’ Application Transformation Services consist of two primary streams:
Consulting Services: TCS carries out cloud and digital maturity assessments to identify gaps and derive an actionable modernization roadmap. It also conducts strategy and visioning workshops to establish the target operating model that covers reference architecture design, evaluation for microservices and design thinking for UX, to support a balanced ‘modernize-while-you-migrate’ approach.
Application Portfolio Transformation: TCS helps customers decide whether to retain, retire, replace, or rebuild their legacy applications and subsequently whether to rehost, refactor, or re-platform while migrating to the cloud. The new applications are built harnessing digital technologies such as advanced data analytics, AI and ML, AR & VR, etc. Further, business processes are analyzed to identify harmonization opportunities, which are then crafted as a bouquet of microservices, APIs and a modern UX.
TCS has invested in setting up dedicated strategic cloud units that provide a full complement of end-to-end services around each of the major hyperscale clouds. TCS’ change management advisory offerings facilitate full participation by all stakeholders in the transformation journey, reducing project risks and delivering superior outcomes.
A key differentiator is TCS’ comprehensive portfolio of intellectual property, tools, and products. TCS MasterCraft™ TransformPlus, an intelligent automation product, significantly accelerates end-to-end application modernization and supports a wide range of legacy and modern programming languages. TCS has used TransformPlus to analyze more than 1 billion lines of legacy code, extract business rules and document them for business reference and decision-making.
The Cloud Innovation Garage leverages IoT, AI, ML and advanced analytics and cloud as well as TCS’ domain knowledge to drive innovation. Other accelerators include HyperBreeze Container Service Offering, Jile™, iCMC™, Modernization Propeller, TCS DATOM, TCS DAEzMO, TCS Decision Fabric™ and ZippedAgile.
“Our Multi-Horizon Transformation to Purpose-led Growth thought leadership framework, underpinned by a rich portfolio of application modernization and migration assets and capabilities are critical value differentiators for our customers’ transformations and a key driver of our market success,” added Krishnan Ramanujam.
