TCS To Partner With JLR On GBP 800 Million Digital Transformation Deal

TCS To Partner With JLR On GBP 800 Million Digital Transformation Deal

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Wednesday unveiled a groundbreaking strategic partnership with the Digital unit of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). The deal, valued at a staggering GBP 800 million (USD 1 billion), is set to unfold over the course of the next five years and is expected to drive significant transformations within the automotive giant.

TCS is slated to play a pivotal role in reshaping and streamlining JLR’s Digital estate. This partnership will encompass a wide array of services, including application development and maintenance, enterprise infrastructure management, cloud migration, cybersecurity, and data services. The overarching goal is to create a future-ready, strategic technology architecture that aligns seamlessly with JLR’s Rimagine strategy.

Notably, JLR is owned by Tata Motors, a subsidiary of Tata Sons, which is the parent company of TCS. Leveraging its contextual knowledge, deep domain expertise, proprietary platforms, and extensive partner network, TCS aims to enhance JLR’s digital capacity and drive innovation within the automotive industry.

In addition to the technical aspects of the partnership, TCS and JLR are collaborating to accelerate JLR’s vision of offering a modern luxury client experience tailored to different markets worldwide.

One of the key benefits of this partnership is the substantial cost savings it is expected to deliver to JLR over the next five years. These savings will be reinvested to support JLR’s future projects and initiatives, aligning with the company’s long-term strategy.

In a statement, Anupam Singhal, Business Group Head – Manufacturing at TCS, highlighted the unique nature of the partnership. He said, “This is a truly bi-modal partnership where the efficiencies from leaner operations will help fund the new digital core, while our contextual knowledge and expertise will de-risk and accelerate that transformation.”

TCS has a rich history in the UK, with more than 45 years of operations in the region and a workforce of over 23,000 employees in the UK and Ireland. This partnership further solidifies TCS’s commitment to the region and its role in driving digital transformation within the automotive sector.

This announcement comes at a time when the IT sector has witnessed a flurry of large deals, driven by a desire among clients to optimize costs, monetise internal assets, and focus on core operations. Notable recent deals include TCS’s GBP 1.5 billion (USD 1.9 billion) contract with the UK-based National Employment Savings Trust (Nest), Verizon Business’s collaboration with HCLTech worth an estimated USD 2.1 billion, and Infosys’s EUR 1.5-billion (USD 1.6 billion) deal with Liberty Global, which could potentially reach EUR 2.3 billion (USD 2.5 billion) if extended to eight years.

Earlier on Wednesday, HCLTech announced that it had won a digital transformation deal with Australian Agribusiness, Elders.
