Mumbai-based information technology services company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and California-based network technology major Cisco would be setting up a  centre of excellence (CoE) for developing digital solutions based on Cisco’s advanced network assurance and automation technologies.

While the centre will look at developing new network-oriented transformation solutions, it will also help TCS optimise other digital solutions for enterprise customers by optimising network performance.

“The Cisco-TCS partnership has grown over the years by leveraging our mutual strengths to solve some of our customers’ largest challenges. By being open and programmable, Cisco’s intent-based networking architecture gives Cisco partners a powerful tool to use when building new networking solutions,” said Ravi Chandrasekaran, senior vice president, enterprise networking business, Cisco.

“Our new centre of excellence is yet another major milestone in the deep and enduring partnership between TCS and Cisco. We are building transformational solutions that will use the power of intent-based networking to further enhance customer experience and create compelling value for our customers in their business 4.0 journeys,” said V Rajanna, global head, technology business unit, TCS.

TCS and Cisco have partnered with several organisations to help them in their digital transformation journeys.

In May, Cisco expanded its partnership with Pune-based IT services company Tech Mahindra to drive automation, analytics and security. Tech Mahindra deployed Cisco’s digital network architecture at its Hyderabad development centre. 

Dutch connectivity solutions provider NXP Semiconductors signed a deal with TCS in July. As part of the agreement, TCS’ cognitive automation product Ignio and its private cloud would be harnessed to improve enterprise supply chain operations.

In September, TCS expanded its partnership with postal and logistics group Posten Norge to improve customer experience.
