Information technology (IT) services company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has launched a curated version of its data strategy consulting framework DATOM (data and analytics target operating model) for its Microsoft Azure customers.

The new version will help customers, with Azure as their preferred cloud platform, to define actionable roadmaps for their business models and deploy insights-driven strategies, the company said in a statement.

DATOM helps enterprises evaluate data and analytics maturity by assessing how data is governed, managed. It can also be used to generate insights across the organisation. It offers context-based details on the implementation of data and analytics programs with a composite service delivery model. It also enables businesses to define cloud adoption strategy.

“TCS DATOM has been driving data centricity by curating data and analytics strategies for our customers. The extension of this consulting framework will help customers realize such strategies effectively on cloud and further their growth and transformation agenda,” Dinanath Kholkar, global head, analytics and insights, TCS, said.

In October, Stavanger, Norway based energy company Equinor partnered with TCS to leverage the DATOM capabilities to accelerate its digital transformation journey. Equinor will use DATOM framework to assess data maturity levels, identify gaps and develop roadmaps to simplify operating models. The framework would also come in handy in setting up data governance models and to build technology architectures for Equinor.

TCS’ Microsoft business unit has completed over 8,500 successful engagements for 500 clients till date, the statement added.

The Microsoft business unit was established in November last year to help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation initiatives. The unit aims to provide tools based on AI (artificial intelligence), machine learning and cloud on Microsoft’s technology platform for TCS customers under its Business 4.0 initiative.

It leverages the Mumbai based company's domain knowledge across industries and global talent pool of nearly 50,000 engineers working on Microsoft technologies. The unit also enables enterprises to plug into TCS’ co-innovation ecosystem while helping them to leverage the full stack of Microsoft technologies to differentiate from competitors.
