NEW YORK | MUMBAI, March 24, 2015: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, today announced it has been ranked in the ‘Winner’s Circle’ by analyst firm HfS Research in its 'Blueprint Report on Telecom Operations Services'.

The HfS Blueprint identifies several key differentiators between service providers, placed in the ‘Winner’s Circle’ for their demonstrated excellence in execution and innovation. From an execution perspective, these providers have developed strong client relationships and real-world delivery solutions and are flexible in meeting clients’ needs. Innovation represents providers’ strong vision, plans to invest in future capabilities and the ability to leverage external drivers to increase value for their clients.

The report highlights TCS’ expertise and ability to help telecom operators grow and thrive in a rapidly changing technology and consumer environment. These include technology business integration, its HOBS platform (cloud based OSS/BSS solution), telecom business process as a service (BPaaS) model, automation adoption, value delivery and innovative processes. The report also cites TCS’ strong delivery capabilities, a comprehensive solution set and industry thought leadership in serving its telecom clients.

“TCS is placed in the ‘Winner's Circle’ of our inaugural Blueprint on Telecom Operations Services because of their strong capabilities in social, mobility, analytics, cloud and automation (SMACA) areas in telecom operations,” said Principal Analyst Pareekh Jain, author of the HfS Blueprint. “TCS has developed a strong value proposition for telecom operators leveraging IT and BPS synergy by delivering Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) on their HOBS platform. Customers have rated TCS highest in their execution capabilities as they often over deliver on SLAs and exceed customer expectations. We found TCS very strong in innovation too, solving some of the telecom operations challenges through innovation, automation and design thinking.”
