The integrated capabilities allow us to provide a more comprehensive set of services and solutions to help our clients in Europe make their businesses more competitive.”
TCS recently unveiled its plans to further activate the capabilities and the talent pool it had acquired, by setting up a new TCS SAP Innovation Center. The center will seek to develop cutting edge enterprise solutions for multiple industries, in co-innovation with TCS’ customers. It will be located in the Île-de-France region and is expected to be operational later in 2014.
TCS has been operating in France since 1992 and has over 50 clients in the country, including several of the CAC 40.
