History timeline of TCS

  • 1968- Tata Consultancy Services launched as a division of Tata Sons on April 1, 1968, as a management and technology consultancy that would create demand for downstream computer services. FC Kohli, a brilliant technocrat, was brought in from the Tata Electric Companies as a General Manager to run this start up.
  • 1970- Acquired an ICL 1903 in 1970 that was originally imported by the Calcutta Electric Supply Company but had remained unused because the unions wouldn’t stand for it. However, as per the rules of the Government of India’s newly set up Department of Electronics, TCS had to commit to export twice the value of the imported computer over the next five years. This effectively oriented view towards outside markets.
  • 1970- Started building software for common processes like financial accounting, share registry work, sales analysis, inter-bank reconciliation, provident fund accounting et al, and operating that software on behalf of customers.
  • 1971- Won the first overseas assignment from a middle-eastern power generation and distribution company for management consultancy services to organize their stores and build a computerized inventory control system.
  • 1973- Partnered with Burroughs to distribute and support its products in India as well as build software that would be exported to various Burroughs units and clients across the world.
  • 1973- Converted a hospital accounting system written in Burroughs Medium Systems COBOL to Burroughs Small Systems COBOL. At this point, TCS did not yet have a Burroughs computer on which to carry out the conversion. The team improvised by writing a ‘filter’ in assembly language on the ICL 1903 to parse the source code and convert it to the Small Systems version. This was the very first recorded instance of an offshore software delivery done out of India, 45 years ago, accomplished using automation.
  • 1974- Executed very first project involving the full software development lifecycle when it built a financial accounting package for two building societies in the UK on behalf of Burroughs. A two-member team gathered the requirements onsite, while a six-member team wrote the code in Bombay. The young chartered accountant who wrote the specifications, S Mahalingam, went on to accomplish many more firsts at TCS over the next 38 years, and was CFO from 2004 to 2013.
  • 1974- Won first independent software assignment from the Police Department of the City of Detroit.
  • 1976- Crossed the $1 Million mark in export revenues, winning the top exporter award from the Engineering Export Promotion Council in 1976-77.

  • 1981- Created an end-to-end advanced system to manage customer relationships for the Western Trust and Savings Limited (WTSL).
