Report Cites Leading Investments in R&D and High Praise From Customers in Thought Leadership, Resource Scalability and Ability to Drive Continuous Improvement

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and MUMBAI, India, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, today announced that it has been designated as a Leader in Enterprise Mobility Services by International Data Corporation (IDC), a leading independent research company. In the "IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Mobile Application Development, Testing, Management and Infrastructure Services 2014 Vendor Assessment" report, TCS' highest scores were received in customer satisfaction, innovation R&D/pace and productivity, and employee management.

The IDC report evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of 14 enterprise mobility service providers on 117 criteria, including range of service offerings, delivery model, scalability, customer service, and growth strategy. This report highlighted customers' high praise for TCS with regard to resource scalability, HTML5 skills, thought leadership, and the ability to drive continuous improvement. It also cited TCS' high flexibility to work with differing client workstyles across application lifecycle management, which makes it easier for clients to develop key partnership bonds with TCS.

"IDC has observed an increasing amount of activity in mobile application services. Enterprises are investing heavily in building mobile applications as part of their overall mission-critical business objectives. But, the rapidly evolving mobile technology landscape, shortage of skilled mobile application resources, and mobile infrastructure costs are impeding enterprises from accomplishing their mobility goals. As a result, enterprises are increasingly looking to service providers, not only for mobility expertise and guidance, but also to build, test and manage mobile applications moving forward," explains Pete Marston of IDC.

"In TCS, we are on a mission to help our customers reimagine their businesses by leveraging mobility to create fundamentally new business models, reach new customer segments, create new channels, and dramatically improve business processes and workplaces," said Dr. Satya Ramaswamy, Global Head of TCS Digital Enterprise. "We are a very customer-centric organization, focused on the success of our customers, so we are pleased to receive high praise from our customers in the IDC MarketScape report for our thought leadership and execution capabilities in enterprise mobility services."

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
