Tata Consultancy Services to Help the International Savings and Investment Provider Modernise its Application Estate and Migrate to a Public Cloud, Enhancing Agility, User Experience and Speed to Market
LONDON | MUMBAI, January 20, 2023: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) has expanded its partnership with M&G, an international savings and investments business, to help the latter transform towards a cloud-only organisation by 2025.
TCS has been a strategic partner to M&G for more than five years. The new partnership will see TCS modernising and simplifying M&G’s legacy infrastructure estate, facilitating its exit from on-premise data centres and migration to Microsoft Azure through a series of technology and business transformation initiatives.
Leveraging its deep contextual knowledge of M&G’s IT and business landscape, TCS will transform its application estate, adopting modern, cloud-native architectures. This will enhance the resilience and stability of critical applications, helping the company serve end-customers better and faster.
TCS’ investments over the years into cloud deployment methodologies and tools, including TCS Cloud Counsel and TCS Migration Factory for Microsoft Cloud, will help accelerate M&G’s cloud transformation journey. Using its proprietary frameworks, TCS will provide M&G a detailed assessment of its current estate, a data-driven migration roadmap, and a specialised DevOps pipeline to seamlessly migrate applications to the cloud.
The resultant improved agility, automation and insights across the cloud operations will help M&G quickly scale up or down as per business priorities. The cloud-native and simplified architecture is expected to help the company enhance the experience for all stakeholders, improve responsiveness, and accelerate speed to market.
Chris Cochrane, Chief Information Technology Officer, M&G, said, “We are pleased to extend our partnership with TCS, which will allow M&G to transform our infrastructure and achieve our cloud-only strategy – key aspects of our business transformation journey, which ultimately helps us deliver more effectively in helping people manage and grow their savings and investments responsibly.”
Siva Ganesan, Head, Microsoft Business Unit, TCS, said: “We believe that M&G’s future-ready infrastructure, built by TCS on Microsoft Cloud, will help drive innovation and deliver superior user- and end-customer experience. We are excited to see how M&G’s cloud migration will power its future transformation and growth.”
TCS’ Microsoft Business Unit works with customers worldwide to accelerate their multi-horizon cloud transformation journeys. TCS uses its deep industry knowledge and large and growing global talent pool of Microsoft-certified consultants to help customers leverage the power of AI, automation and cloud to enhance customer experience, reimagine employee empowerment, optimise operations and spur innovation.
