TCS, Cisco to Develop Apps for Virtual Data Center
Software major TCS and networking major Cisco have allied to design and develop applications relating to virtual data centers, offering customers network as a platform service.
Under the agreement, TCS will build a new technology practice focused on Cisco’s data centre networking and security solutions.
The companies also announced the formation of a Cisco Technology Lab at the TCS campus in Chennai, India. John Chambers, chairman and CEO for Cisco, and S. Ramadorai, chief executive officer and managing director for TCS made the announcements at a press conference today.
The Lab will allow TCS to develop network-based data centre solutions, test frameworks, develop skills and certify employees in Cisco data centre technologies. The lab will also allow Cisco and TCS to illustrate proof-of-concepts and IT and networking methodologies for client-specific business processes.
As part of the new practice, TCS will incorporate Cisco’s Data Centre 3.0 technologies, with TCS’ IT services, business solutions and outsourcing. The practice will focus on helping customers develop next-generation virtualized datacenters and achieve greater operational and energy efficiency. The companies will also explore new networking innovations to address the needs of large and small businesses for IT services.
"Customers are demanding greater dynamism from their IT infrastructure and application environment to address current challenges and to capitalize on opportunities whenever and wherever they emerge," said N Chandrasekaran, chief operating officer and executive director of TCS. "This strategic alliance will take advantage of Cisco’s data centre networking solutions and TCS’ global network delivery model to help our customers increase the efficiency and agility of their IT operations."
The alliance will initially focus on India as well as mutual enterprise customers in the United States and the United Kingdom in the key verticals of banking and finance services, telecom, and government as well as small and medium-sized business.
The two companies are developing go-to-market solutions that meet the infrastructure and network requirements of global corporations. Both companies will invest in skills development and training labs to provide an end-to-end solution to meet customer requirements.
