Telcommunications giant Ericsson has signed on Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to set up and operate its cloud-based digital workspace for research and development (R&D). 

The Mumbai headquartered information technology (IT) services major will enable anytime-anywhere secure access and automated availability of the development environment for Ericsson's global R&D and engineering teams. 

TCS will also use its expertise in automation and cloud technologies to ensure that the Stockholm, Sweden headquartered company’s globally distributed teams are supported with on-demand, zero-touch, and remote provisioning, the statement said. 

“Engineering environments are very complex with heterogenous infrastructure, specialized tools and demand for customized engineering services, making it challenging to digitally transform such environments,” V Rajanna, global head for technology business unit at TCS, said in the statement. 

“TCS will leverage its contextual knowledge and deep industry expertise in digital transformations to help Ericsson in this journey,” he said.  

The transformation initiative will be driven by TCS’ new command centre in Hyderabad. It is powered by TCS Business 4.0 thought leadership framework and a machine first delivery model-based automation approach. 

The partnership with Ericsson comes just as TCS prepares to announce its earnings for the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2021.  

In Q3, the company posted a 7.3% year-n-year increase in net profits to Rs 8,701 crore, against Rs 8,118 crore in the year-ago period.
