TCS scales up its North America Domestic Delivery Center, TCS Seven Hills Park, to 300 associates

Cincinnati, US, November 5, 2009: At an event today attended by Ohio’s Governor Ted Strickland, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: TCS.BO, NSE: TCS.NS), a leading IT services, business solutions and outsourcing firm, announced that it had scaled up its North America Domestic Delivery Center, TCS Seven Hills Park, to 300 associates. Seven Hills Park provides a wide range of IT solutions, consulting, business process outsourcing and engineering services for TCS customers across industries including Banking and Financial Services, Life Science and Healthcare, as well as Manufacturing and Retail.

TCS Seven Hills Park is also the location of TCS’ new North American Training Center. Over the last several months, more than 225 associates have joined the company from top universities throughout the country and completed a six weeks training program at the center as part of TCS’ Initial Learning Program (ILP). TCS’ ILP is unique in the industry - training includes a mixture of business professionalism, quality, and technical courses with a focused rigor on integration into TCS. Many of these newly trained associates are now developing custom IT solutions for the Government and Healthcare sectors.

Ohio Governor Ted Strickland commented, “Fostering job creation is vital to a strong economic recovery for Ohio. Companies like Tata Consultancy Services are tapping into our highly talented workforce and world class educational institutions to grow their business while providing high skilled jobs for Ohioans. This is the type of investment and long term commitment that will ensure Ohio’s place as an economic leader.”

N Chandrasekaran, CEO and MD of TCS, said, “The United States is by far our largest market and Seven Hills Park plays an integral role in our strategy of putting our customers first.  As part of our Global Network Delivery Model™, Seven Hills Park helps TCS deliver on our promise of providing reliable, scalable, cost-effective delivery of IT services and solutions. I welcome these new associates into the TCS family and am sure they will help our customers achieve even greater success in the future.”

Surya Kant, President of TCS North America, said, “We place great importance on ensuring that we provide the best service to our North American customers.  The Cincinnati region is a great place for us to recruit and train local talent to meet the demands of our customers as they grow out of the downturn.  The strong partnerships we continue to have with the greater Cincinnati academic community including the University of Cincinnati and Ohio State University ensure that we will continue to find skilled professionals in this region.”

By keeping with its corporate values of giving back to the community, TCS Seven Hills Park plays an active role in the sustainability of the broader region.  This past summer, Seven Hills Park hosted the TCS ‘goIT’ summer camp, designed to create higher levels of awareness with respect to IT careers and technology specifics among local high school students, many of whom are now considering careers in technology related fields. TCS Seven Hills Park is also a supporter of the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio, which provides assistance and opportunities to disadvantaged families living in Ohio’s southern Appalachian counties.

Conveniently located in the Cincinnati suburb of Milford, Ohio, the center sits on 223 acres of wooded land and includes 196 thousand square feet of office space. The center is fully certified ISO9001 and ISO27001 compliant, the industry standards in quality and information security management. It is also fully compliant with TCS’ Integrated Quality Management System and shares TCS’ collaborative and knowledge management systems with all other TCS facilities worldwide so as to access and disseminate technical knowledge and accelerate competitive technology developments for the benefit of Seven Hills Park clients.
