Collaboration with Tata Consultancy Services will Drive Efficiency and Accelerate Innovation for End Customers Managing Modern Data-Intensive Enterprise Applications
NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Tata Consultancy Services (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT consultancy firm, and Mesosphere, the creators of DC/OS, the premier platform for building and running data-intensive, containerized applications, today announced a partnership aimed at helping customers utilize data services and cloud platforms more efficiently.
TCS will build frameworks for new data services and enhance Mesosphere's existing DC/OS catalogue. Additionally, TCS Cloud will run DC/OS to provide a big data platform-as-a-service leveraging SMACK stack, a toolchain that is open-source and production-proven at scale. SMACK stack is becoming the standard to build enterprise applications that are the hallmark of digital transformations today.
The new framework will help TCS and Mesosphere customers drive digital initiatives more efficiently, thereby enhancing their return on investment. This partnership will enable customers to optimize their spend on public or private clouds or in-house data centers by up to 30 percent, cut project lifecycles by almost half, and accelerate time to value for new digital initiatives.
"TCS is committed to delivering innovations that create a competitive edge for our customers and steer businesses toward a more efficient digital future," said Raman Venkatraman, Vice President and Global Head of Alliances and Technology, TCS. "This partnership will enable us to build applications that can be deployed to ensure high utilization of capacity, cost predictability and easy portability between clouds so that our customers benefit from accelerated time to value."
The TCS and Mesosphere partnership will enable customers to modernize their IT infrastructure for increased agility, flexibility, management, and security. It will also improve operational agility to more rapidly adapt to change, and accelerate innovation by leveraging more than 100 data services available as part of the DC/OS catalogue. TCS will also leverage Mesosphere's data services to offer Big Data, Real Time Analytics, IoT, and Hybrid Cloud solutions to customers.
"The engineering partnership with TCS is exciting, as it will expand the data services and frameworks offered on the DC/OS Service Catalogue," said William Freiberg, Chief Operating Officer, Mesosphere. "We look forward to working with TCS to deliver an accelerated time-to-market with the infrastructure and services needed to deploy machine learning and IoT applications at scale."
TCS will provide Mesosphere a test facility for proof-of-concept projects at TCS' Center of Excellence in Cincinnati, Ohio, to demonstrate the value of Mesosphere DC/OS in enabling customers with data agility and in adoption of hybrid cloud.
For many industries, digital transformation means leveraging data at scale and in real time, and so DC/OS has become the platform of choice for leaders across industries including Financial Services, Automotive, Healthcare, Manufacturing, and Retail. As a trusted partner for these industries, TCS will provide customers with the technology and best practices to maximize their investment in DC/OS.
