Further, in order to ensure the perfect cultural and lingual fit, TCS Japan Hikari Academy has been established as an integral part of the JDC, featuring dedicated faculty who will provide extensive language training and cultural seminars for staff at multiple levels. A customized curriculum is also being developed in collaboration with universities from the surrounding Pune area which boasts the largest student population for Japanese-language studies in India.
Speaking about the significance of the Japan-centric Delivery Center, CEO and MD, N Chandrasekaran, said, “Opening of this center is a continuation of our investment and commitment to the Japan market. Our Model brings out the best of our capabilities in Japan and leverages TCS’ global strengths, and we are pleased to partner with our clients in Japan to reap the fruits of technology-led innovation.”
TCS Japan Services Delivery Head and Vice President, Yoshiyuki Tanimura, commented, “TCS offers best-in-class services and vast global experience across multiple industries and domains. We believe that this—paired with Japanization and our focused alignment with Japan market expectations—will enable customers to execute on key business initiatives with greater confidence, expediting time to market and their ability to scale with ease.”
