Key Findings & Highlights:

This NelsonHall vendor assessment analyzes TCS’ offerings and capabilities in digital manufacturing services.

Consulting and IT services, primarily around five main topics:

  • Connected products / assets
  • Industry 4.0 and digital manufacturing, which is the scope of this profile
  • Remote energy management
  • Connected supply chain and fleet management
  • Industrial robotics & automation.

The IoT service line (ISL) is part of the Digital Transformation Services group. It is a full-service line responsible for P&L, client solutioning, service portfolio and IP, and CoEs.

NelsonHall estimates that ISL has a headcount of ~7k.

TCS complements its digital manufacturing capabilities through its manufacturing unit and several CoEs, (1) edge, (2) industrial robotics and automation, (3) next-gen manufacturing, and (4) industrial analytics.

TCS has drafted its vision of a digital factory (DF), which relies on four main broad principles, i.e., flexibility to produce optimized operations, advanced automation, security, and resource productivity (including health and safety). The company has articulated its service portfolio from the edge and OT level to use cases and business value (e.g., increased revenue, asset availability, time-to-market, safety). TCS is systematically aligning its service portfolio around DF. Analytics and AI play a central role within this portfolio, with TCS continuously investing in AI-based use cases.

TCS' long-term vision is to create self-aware equipment, relying on real-time data analytics. Thanks to AI, each machine will be able to optimize its performance. The company highlights that it has already made some progress on its self-aware equipment journey. It points to several digital twin projects in brownfield plant scenarios, such as AGVs adjusting their routes automatically, relying on autonomous vehicle models.
