Mumbai | Brussels | Amsterdam, May 10, 2011: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 523540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions firm was adjudged the “Outsourcing company of the year 2011” award at the Data News Awards for Excellence ceremony held in Brussels.

The Data News Awards are the leading award series for the information technology (IT) and telecom industry in Belgium and recognize exceptional performances by companies and individuals across 12 categories. The nominees are drawn up from a long list of contenders nominated by the editorial team, which undergoes a first-level selection based on online voting by the readers of Data News, after which a specialist jury of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and industry leaders decides on the final winner.

“A two phase process of having our readers (accounting for over 75% of all IT professionals in Belgium) vote on the nominees, followed by an expert jury deciding the winner ensures that the company that wins holds both a strong reputation for performance in the general market and the respect of top CIOs and IT decision makers. TCS emerged as the clear winner, ahead of 25 other companies, a point that underscores its growing reputation in Belgium and indeed across Europe. It is also notably the first India-headquartered company to ever win this award, ” said Luc Blyaert, Editor-in-Chief of Data News (a part of the Roularta Media Group).

Shankar Narayanan, Director & Head, TCS Benelux, said, “This award is a landmark recognition for us in Belgium, where we have been expanding over the years. It is also one of our largest operations in Europe today. It reflects the trust and confidence that TCS has built within the IT and business community through our approach of delivery excellence, deep industry expertise and most importantly – forging long-term partnerships with our clients. This recognition belongs as much to each of our clients, as it does to us.”

Its Belgian operations comprise over 1100 consultants who provide services to leading firms in the country including several BEL20 companies in the telecom, retail, manufacturing and financial services sectors.
