17. Overview of the financial results of TCS Limited (consolidated):

23. 23. BCG Matrix for TCS
24. 24. Market Development Strategy New/Emerging Markets: India, Middle-east and Australia
Current Product: ADM, BPO, KPO, consultancy services (in BFSI, manufacturing and
retail) and software products (financial products) Recommendation: Since these are fast
developing IT market, TCS needs a paradigm shift in focus from US and EU markets to these
25. 25. Other global strategies Since last few years TCS is successfully leveraging labor cost in
Eastern Europe, South America and China Recent acquisitions in Ireland and Latin
America demonstrate its ambition to create delivery centers of respectable size outside of
India TCS was the first one to set up a delivery centre in China
26. 26. Corporate Strategies Diversification Strategy: 1. In February 2008, TCS restructured its
global operations to adopt an integrated, customer-centric approach 2. The companys
operations are now divided into five units: Industry Solutions (for vertical-specific services),
Major Markets (North America, Western Europe and the U.K), New Growth Markets (Latin
America, Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa and India), Strategic Growth Business (TCS
Financial Solutions, SMB and Platformbased BPO) and Organizational Infrastructure
27. 27. Cont. Strategic Alliances: 1. TCS has strategic relationships with various global
technology vendors. These relationships are in various dimensions such as Customer,
Service Provider, Supplier, and Alliance Partner 2. TCS and these technology vendors
collaborate on joint research leveraging each others strengths to research and to the
development of best-of-breed offerings Some of the strategic alliances are listed below: a)
Intel b) SAP c) Hewlett-Packard d) EMC2
28. 28. Cont. Acquisition Strategy: 1. Nov 2008: TCS Acquisition of Citigroup Services 2. Feb
2006: Tata InfoTech (TIL) Limited was merged into TCS Limited 3. March 2006: TCS, through
its subsidiary, Diligenta, acquired a basis in part of UKs Pearl Group. 4. Oct. 31, 2006:
Similar to the financial stakes made above, TCS again expanded its banking products and
consolidated its European operations after acquiring a 75% equity stake in its Switzerlandbased partner, TKSTeknosoft. TKS was the marketing agent for TCS in Europe
29. 29. Cont. TCS Joint ventures: 1. TCS went for a joint venture (JV) in Feb 2007 with three
Chinese partners 2. The TCS joint venture will thus be one of the largest software companies
in China once it reaches its 5,000-employee target 3. Another JV is between TCS and SBI

(State Bank of India) in Nov 2005 to cater advanced technology solutions and domain
consulting for the banking and financial services sector
30. 30. Recommendation The first and foremost recommendation for TCS is to change its
vision statement. In our humble opinion it is short sighted. TCS needs to have a vision that
will show its leadership qualities and long term thinking. Expect to see the landscape
continue to consolidate. Clients will seek to cut costs and focus on fewer provider
relationships as the economy worsens. TCS should take this opportunity to improve your
market positioning. Ensure marketing articulates your value proposition to all stakeholders
concerned. In a recession, marketing can work as a differentiator. Service providers like
TCS need to create specific value propositions aimed directly at the relevant stakeholders
and in the new tech ecosystem, these relevant stakeholders must include business
executives, not just IT personnel
31. 31. Cont. Provide more high-end services in value chain (3rd Wave in IT) There is a
move required from ADM (Application Development and maintenance) to value added
services, BPO to Consulting and Package Implementation, etc. TCS should shift focus
from Low cost advantage to high quality services commanding a premium being the pioneer
in the industry TCS (rather all Indian IT players) should focus more on increasing their IP
(Intellectual Property) assets.
