  • Three-year partnership marks TCS’ 25th anniversary in the Netherlands, and the 10th edition of TEDxAmsterdam
  • The collaboration will provide a platform for the next generation of independent thinkers to help drive the Fourth Industrial Revolution

MUMBAI | AMSTERDAM, August 1, 2018 - Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, today announced a strategic partnership with TEDxAmsterdam for the 10th edition of the world-famous, independently-organized conference that creates a platform 'for ideas worth spreading’.

The focus for this year’s event, which is titled 'The big X', referring to ‘the big unknown’ and the way society will change as a result of emerging technologies - a quality reflected in TCS’ own Business 4.0 vision, where the combination of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, internet of things and cloud technology are radically changing the business environment.

The three year partnership, which also marks TCS’ recent 25th anniversary in the Netherlands, will provide a major platform for independent thinkers to spark discussions and ideas on how technology can shape society, business and ultimately contribute to a better world.
