With over two decades of consulting and technology experience with TMT companies, TCS provides consulting services and domain solutions, powered by strategic investments in products and platforms and its Co-innovation Network. TCS is enabling TMT companies to transform customer experience and drive growth by building a digital core through technologies such as cloud, IoT, data, agile and AI; creating innovative business models driven by innovation and integration of best practices across industries; and by adopting ecosystems as an operating model to transform and grow. Two key platforms at the core of the business transformation journey for TMT companies are:
TCS TwinX: Creates a digital twin of the enterprise’s entire value chain ie customers, products, processes, partners and resources along with their interrelationships. Once modelled as twins, TwinX enables enterprises to simulate behaviour in response to decisions. The solution offers significant empowerment to business decision-makers to experiment and evaluate their decisions in a risk averse manner by testing multiple hypothesis through digital twin simulations before zeroing in on the right one. TCS TwinX can simulate hypothesis in several strategic areas such as new product launches, media mix and campaign design, customer lifetime value maximization, value chain optimization, business growth and transformation, fraud control and management, and risk analysis and mitigation.
TCS HOBS: A next-generation digital business ecosystem platform that helps TMT companies address the complexity of managing, orchestrating, and monetizing multi-partner offerings across multiple channels. With subscription management as a core capability, the platform also provides offerings around data monetization and device management. TCS HOBS delivers as-a-service subscription models with ecosystem orchestration and complex multi-partner product bundling capabilities.
Don Ryan, Senior Vice President, Research and Consulting, HFS Research, said, “TCS is changing in-step with the TMT ecosystem. For HFS, its clarity of vision and approach – and increasingly advisory-led engagements – compliments its long-standing industry expertise in TMT – but also in each sub-sector. TCS leads on innovation in the TMT services market – with standout use of digital twins, business-capability COEs, and developing TMT innovation into broader industry-specific solutions elsewhere.”
