Independent Analyst firm ranks TCS BaNCS as no 1 technology provider and market leader in China for second consecutive year

Report highlights consistent growth since launch three years ago

BAI – RDS, Orlando, Mumbai, India, November 21, 2008: TCS Financial Solutions, the strategic business unit of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: TCS.BO, NSE: TCS.NS) dedicated to providing business application solutions to the banking, insurance and capital markets industries, today announced that  leading analyst firm IDC has ranked TCS BaNCS as no. 1 solution in China for the second consecutive year. The report also named TCS as a market leader as well as a key service provider in the region.

Specifically on TCS, the report noted “After entering the China market, TCS secured a big deal every year - Huaxia Bank in 2005, Bank of China in 2006, and Guangdong Rural Credit Union in 2007. Solutions provided by TCS focus on the middle and front ends, with the core banking system as the mainstay plus the systems of payment and liquidation, ATM, card and channel management. Currently, TCS' financial department has nearly 300 employees in China.”

Commenting on TCS’ strategy Jeanne Capachin, Research Vice-President for the Global Banking and Insurance practice said, “This region is poised for consolidation once the innovating banks complete the cycle of transformation and start harnessing technology benefits. TCS has built a strong momentum in the region and with strong reference clients their presence can only get stronger as a clear leader.”

N Ganapathy Subramaniam, President, TCS Financial Solutions said “Our sustained and strategic focus on China has been reinforced by IDC’s ranking and reading of the market. Our customers around the world can continue to expect our suite of products and solutions to outperform and deliver superior performance.”  

The report also observed that with the upheaval in the financial services industry, there is an increasing pressure to strengthen and transform core banking infrastructure, improve integration across the enterprise and increase efficiency.
