Tata Consultancy Services has announced a global partnership with Randstad Global IT Solutions, the IT infrastructure services arm of the HR services provider Randstad,
to design and deploy what it claims to be the world’s largest end-to-end public cloud marketplaces for IT infrastructure services.
With this collaboration, Randstad plans to improve its current IT infrastructure operations through assets and vendor optimization, process standardization, automation, and deriving economies of scale as part of its IT transformation strategy.
Bernardo Payet, General Manager, Randstad Global IT Solutions says, “Today the disruptive influences of digital technology are providing us with more opportunities to capitalize in our markets. We decided to centralize responsibility for all IT Infrastructure into the new Global IT Shared Service Center (SSC). In turn the IT SSC was looking for partners to transform the landscape over time, to a fully cloud enabled Future Mode of Operations.”
“We found in TCS the perfect combination of contextual understanding, technology foresight and the willingness to invest in a relationship to make this initiative succeed. It quickly became clear that TCS’ expertise and track record of delivering large scale, multi-market Digital and IT projects made it the best possible partner for us. We are confident that this partnership is the right step in our transformation journey and will help us realize our goals,” Payet added.
Last year, Randstad had set up an IT shared services center to achieve business transformation through centralisation of global processes and technology, specifically in the areas of networks leveraging public internet and data center hosting in the public cloud, the company said.
Amit Kapur, Director and Head, TCS Benelux, states, “In today’s dynamic economy, success of business depends on its ability to adapt quickly to new opportunities or changing customer demands. This engagement will enable Randstad to significantly boost the agility and scalability of its global IT services, as well as drive efficiencies and economies of scale.”
“We are delighted to be partnering with Randstad on such a strategically important initiative and look forward to working closely to deliver real business benefits in the coming years. We are taking Cloud Services delivery to a new paradigm, whereby customers will have all the choices from public cloud marketplace and the benefits of our services wrapped around it enabled through a Global Network Delivery.”
TCS claims that it has been present in the Netherlands and Benelux region since 1992 and the business and IT solutions organization
has continuously invested in the market locally to deliver results to its customers.
