By sharpening our focus on individual components of the Digital service stack, we have been able to bring to bear the full power of our contextual knowledge, research and innovation, and investments in location-independent agile, automation and cloud on our customers’ transformational imperatives and become a trusted partner in their Business 4.0 journeys.”

N. Ganapathy Subramaniam, Chief Operating Officer & Executive Director, TCS, said: “It has been a very satisfying performance this quarter, striking a good balance between pursuing revenue growth, particularly in Digital opportunities, while tightening our execution to deliver greater efficiency. Our client-centricity and business depth are resulting in industry-leading customer satisfaction levels and strong client metrics. With the sectoral headwinds slowly abating, we expect steadier and stronger growth ahead.”

V. Ramakrishnan, Chief Financial Officer, TCS, said: "Rigor and discipline in our operations helped accomplish an impressive margin performance and progress along the profitability path we had outlined earlier. Our investment program remains geared for growth. Continued investments in digital design and transformational capabilities are paying off, and it shows in the strong growth in our Digital business.”
