Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, has entered into a new collaboration with Intel Corporation to build a ‘future-ready reference architecture’ for the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud, network, 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), and data centre infrastructure management, helping to meet the rapidly evolving digital transformation requirements of global markets. The collaboration will enable the development of solutions based on Intel’s technologies such as Intel Xeon Processors, 7th-Gen Intel Core processors, Intel Optane SSDs, Intel Xeon Phi processors, and Intel Omni-Path Technology, as well as Intel solutions, including Intel Rack Scale Design, network function virtualisation (NFV), and AI.
Coupled with its full services digital expertise, the collaboration will deliver business value by advancing customers’ data centres and end-to-end IoT solutions such as edge devices, operating systems, storage, analytics, end-point devices and networking infrastructure investments. TCS and Intel are also investing in Centres of Excellence (CoE) in the US and India, which will be hubs for next generation data centre technologies, IoT and cloud-ready network architectures to support customers. The COEs will address industry-specific challenges in IoT to optimise costs, improve productivity and increase customers’ revenue. In addition, TCS and Intel will design cloud-ready network architectures to help businesses build agile and cost effective infrastructure through software-defined networking, software-defined infrastructure and NFV.
