Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India's largest IT services company, will TIE-UP with Chipmaker, Intel to design a reference architecture that could be used for rolling out Internet of things (IoT), cloud, 5G and AI by its customers.
The partnership will also see both companies jointly investing in Centres of Excellences (CoEs) across India and the US to provide industry specific solutions for optimising cost and improving productivity.
Shannon Poulin, Vice-President (Sales and Marketing), Intel, said, ""The collaboration with TCS marks a milestone for our continued efforts to enable customers and the industry with services and technologies for digital transformation,"
He added, "The collaboration allows us to offer advanced ready-to-use solutions and reference architectures across the network, cloud and client. The CoEs will also provide on-the-ground solution testing, verification and development support for customers in the US and India."
While TCS will gain from Intel's hardware know-how, the partnership will ensure that Intel chips sell better in systems that are used by large enterprises. They will also design cloud-ready network design to help businesses build agile and cost effective infrastructure through software-defined networking, software-defined infrastructure and NFV.
