TCS Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in the North American Business Intelligence and Performance Management Services

Mumbai, India – June 3, 2008 — Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: TCS.BO, NSE: TCS.NS), a leading global IT services, business solutions and outsourcing firm, today announced that leading industry analyst firm Gartner, Inc., positioned TCS in the Leaders Quadrant of its “Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Performance Management Services, North America,” 2008 report.1

Developed by Gartner analysts as an evaluation of the Business Intelligence and Performance Management Services providers, the Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors on their ability to execute and their completeness of vision.

“We are proud of our positioning in the Leaders Quadrant, which in my opinion reaffirms our expertise in this space,” said Dr. Santosh Mohanty, Head, Global Technology Excellence, TCS.  “We believe this is a testament to our industry-focused BIPM solutions, technology agnostic approach, and our Global Network Delivery Model™, which all contribute to our high levels of customer satisfaction.”

TCS' BIPM practice has a holistic view of Business Intelligence and Performance Management. TCS believes that ‘Enterprise Intelligence’ will drive business outcomes if powered by process integration and business innovation. In a similar term, setting targets and meeting those targets on a consistent basis requires a complete alignment of process, performance and prediction. TCS has created a service oriented framework called “SOLAR”© to strategize and deliver the BIPM solution for the enterprise. The SOLAR framework brings the right alignment of ‘Integration, Intelligence and Innovation’ and ‘Process, Performance and Prediction’.
