TCS and SAP: Future-proofing businesses together

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a trusted global strategic service partner for SAP, was a proud Diamond Sponsor of Sapphire 2023

Here are some of the key highlights from both the events.

Orlando saw us accept SAP Pinnacle Award 2023 in the Social Impact category. This award reflects our commitment to empower enterprises with our solution, “Supplier Diversity Insight,” which has helped TCS’ customers empower their communities through social sustainability in marginalized communities and promoting minority-owned businesses, making supply chain resiliency and supplier diversity an integral part of the way they do business.

Furthermore, Orlando was a true testament to our partnerships, and we're very grateful to Walgreens and Honeywell for joining us to share their incredible transformation stories! Read more about the sessions in the next section.

The excitement from Orlando spilled over to Barcelona, bringing the house down with conversations around TCS, enabling one of the largest #SAP Transformations in the world together with SAP and Versuni. We were proud to receive a mention in the keynote address by Versuni's CEO, Henk S de Jong, and to be further commended by its CIO, Corine Adams, for the hard work and dedication demonstrated by every member of the TCS team to enable a transformation of this scale.
