Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is delighted to participate and support the HEAnet Conference, and we look forward to engaging with you at the conference and beyond. Please come and meet us at our exhibition stand, in the sessions, or at the social events!
TCS is a leading, global, IT services, consulting, and business solutions company. We have been partnering with many of the world’s largest organisations, in their growth and digital transformation journeys, since 1968. We believe innovation and collective knowledge can transform all our futures with greater purpose.
TCS has been providing purpose-driven solutions in the UK since 1975 and in Ireland since 2001. We are deeply committed to growing our relationships and supporting Education in Ireland. We partner with our customers to innovate for growth, leveraging our ecosystem of partners from across academia, government, start-ups, technology providers and hyperscalers.
We have over 614,000 employees, globally distributed and highly localised. We represent over 150 nationalities and 35.7% are women. TCS is the second largest Indian company by market capitalization and is among the largest IT service and solution brands worldwide.
Having operated in Ireland for more than 20 years, today TCS employs more than 1,500 people in the country. The company built its first global delivery centre in Letterkenny, servicing local companies, and global firms with a presence in Ireland. The state-of-the-art facility at Letterkenny also includes an innovation lab and centres of excellence in cybersecurity and cloud services. As well as employing many local people, TCS also supports the community through many endeavours, including a donation of 120 laptops and office equipment to the Donegal Intercultural Platform and the Irish Red Cross to distribute to Ukrainian families.
TCS customers operate across multiple industries, including Education of course. We provide the length and breadth of business and technology services and solutions. We achieve this through our deep and broad skilled and experienced workforce, and through our practices and partnerships. We have dedicated technology practices that serve generic technology requirements such as networking and integration, and we have dedicated practices to support many applications and technology product partners such as Microsoft, AWS, Google, Oracle, Salesforce and many more. Although TCS has Education customers dating back many years, we did not have concerted focus on the industry. However, that changed in 2020 when TCS created a dedicated global Education Business Unit. This unit has been growing fast so that we can better support and deliver what you need with Education industry expertise and devoted resources. Furthermore, TCS has been building our own products and solutions, specifically for Education, since about 2010.
Education is very much at the heart of the Tata Group and TCS. Tata Sons, the principal holding company of Tata Group, put 66% of their equity into philanthropic trusts, supporting: education, health, and other great causes. Tata founded and continues to support five education and research institutions. TCS has multiple research centres and a co-innovation network with 181 institution partnerships. We run extensive internship programmes, competitions, hackathons, and so on.
We sincerely hope to have the opportunity to partner with you and your institution, to help you in your digital journeys.
