Hiroshi highlights TCS’ contributions to Nissan in their nine year partnership.
- Automobile R&D is time bound and quality requirements are of prime importance. TCS has met demanding timelines, good quality and performance requirements that are needed for automotive research and development projects.
- TCS has simplified the overall analytic system architecture by reusing the existing Nissan infrastructure and software, optimizing the time needed for end user in learning the new systems. This saved unnecessary training time of maintenance in-charge.
- With the online analytics system, 600+ end-users across multiple geographical locations are now able to view the actual and real time condition of multiple newly launched vehicles.
