STOCKHOLM | HYDERABAD, April 8, 2021: Tata Consultancy Services (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, announced that it has joined forces with Ericsson, a technology leader in 5G and a leading provider of information and communication technology, to help the latter build and operate its cloud-based R&D digital workplace.

Ericsson has been at the forefront of innovation and continues to evolve next-generation network architectures to stay ahead of the curve. It chose TCS as its partner for its R&D environment transformation initiative that will enable anytime-anywhere secured access and automated availability of the development environment for Ericsson’s global R&D teams. TCS will leverage its strong contextual knowledge of Ericsson’s R&D and IT environments coupled with expertise in automation and cloud technologies to support globally distributed teams with on-demand, zero-touch and remote provisioning.

Further, TCS is launching a state-of-the-art 24 x 7 Command Center at Hyderabad, India. This new command center, powered by the TCS’ Business 4.0™ thought leadership framework and its unique Machine First Delivery Model (MFDM™) based automation, will help accelerate Ericsson’s R&D and product development environment. The autonomous provisioning, configuration and plans for self-healing of the development environment aligns with Ericsson’s ambition to create a world-class R&D environment for its engineers .

We take pride in partnering with Ericsson in this strategic R&D workplace transformation, which further strengthens the long-standing relationship between our two organizations. Engineering environments are very complex with heterogenous infrastructure, specialized tools and demand for customized engineering services, making it challenging to digitally transform such environments. TCS will leverage its contextual knowledge and deep industry expertise in digital transformations to help Ericsson in this journey,” said V Rajanna, Global Head, Technology Business Unit, TCS.
