India’s leading software services provider, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has set up a centre of excellence (CoE) to focus on creating futuristic technologies as part of the larger Digital India drive.
The new research and development (R&D) hub, dubbed the NextGen Technology CoE, will be based at its Hyderabad campus and house around 200 engineers.
V. Rajanna, TCS vice-president and global head (technology business unit), said: “It would create next-generation products and solutions for its global customers in the semiconductors, devices and networks space.
“Another area of focus for this CoE is to create innovative technology solutions for the connected world in areas such as Man-Machine interface, context-aware systems and resource constrained devices.”
The company said the aim of the new centre would be to help define future standards and collaborate with academic institutes and open source communities.
The primary focus of the CoE will be on emerging communication technologies such as Software Defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), 5G and Wireless LAN (WLAN). This would help TCS accelerate its product development cycle and create differentiation in the marketplace, a company statement said.
The company has been working towards an “as-a-service” business model to capture the cloud computing space. TCS CEO N. Chandrasekaran had recently revealed that eight different cloud platforms together generated over $500 million in annual revenue for the company last year.Tagged: Technology, Research, Digital India, TCS
