San Jose, California based networking company Extreme Networks has partnered with TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) to transform its human resource function.

The partnership helped Extreme Networking provide  hyper-personalisation in the overall HR experience to boost employee morale. The companies have not revealed the financial details of the deal or how long TCS was involved in the project. 

Mumbai-based information technology services giant TCS has used its Business 4.0 thought leadership framework along with its expertise in Oracle HCM Cloud and agile methodologies to enable a seamless integration across processes and systems at Extreme Networks.

The new HR application built on Oracle HCM Cloud has helped Extreme Networks to transform and streamline core HR, employee and manager self-service, employee onboarding, and leave management processes globally, the company said in a statement.

“We are delighted to partner with Extreme Networks in reimagining their human capital management as a strategic growth driver, leveraging our Business 4.0 framework, extensive experience in HR digital transformation and deep contextual knowledge,” said V Rajanna, Global Head, Technology Business Unit, TCS.

With new and agile ways of working, the transformation will help Extreme Networks in improving productivity and innovation. The new simplified platform will provide analytics and actionable insights that will enable quick decision-making and support strategic workforce initiatives.

“Extreme is committed to a cloud-driven, global digital transformation to connect and empower our highly mobile and global workforce. Thanks to TCS, the migration of our human capital system to Oracle HCM Cloud was seamless and on schedule. It allows us to provide our employees with self-service and automation capabilities so they can manage their responsibilities efficiently and effectively, enriching the overall employee experience.” Dan Adam, Chief Information Officer, Extreme Networks said.

TCS has also deployed its cloud-based banking solutions platform to facilitate the digital transformation of Manchester-based co-operative institution Voyager Alliance Credit Union. As part of the same agreement, it implemented digital banking solutions for financial lending company Retail Credit Union, an associate entity of Voyager Alliance.

The firm signed another digital transformation deal in September 2019 with Qatar-based QNB Bank, one of the largest banks in the Middle Eastern region. The deal was to provide a solution for the bank's capital market operations using its proprietary BaNCS global securities platform.

In the same month, Automaker General Motors partnered with TCS to expand its global vehicle engineering services division. As part of this TCS acquired certain assets of the GM Technical Center - India (GMTC-I), in Bengaluru, and partnered with GM, supporting its global vehicle programmes with engineering design services over the next five years.
