TCS will offer services around IBM’s cloud native and open technologies leveraging IBM Cloud Pak portfolio, including IBM Cloud Paks for Applications, Data, Integration, Automation, Multicloud Management and Security. These services can help clients migrate, manage and transform their enterprise workloads and applications on the IBM public cloud.

“This collaboration with TCS can help businesses accelerate their digital transformation by developing cloud-based technologies leveraging Red Hat OpenShift,” said Bob Lord, Senior Vice President, Cognitive Applications, Blockchain and Ecosystems, IBM. “TCS’ experience in IT consulting across industries combined with IBM’s cloud platform and Cloud Pak solutions can help clients speed their journeys to the cloud.”
