TCS impressed us with its domain knowledge of the retail and consumer goods industry, its partnership approach and flexible engagement model,” said Tom Meyer, Vice President, Global Infrastructure & Operations, Amway.
“A scalable, responsive and resilient digital core is an essential foundation for enterprises looking to leverage digital technologies to differentiate themselves in a Business 4.0™ world,” said Surya Kant, Head of North America, UK and Europe, TCS. “We are delighted to partner Amway in transforming their IT operations to be better aligned with business imperatives while reducing operating risks and improving end customer experiences.”
