Britain’s Rolls-Royce Holdings has announced that it will be expanding its partnership with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT firm, in order to accelerate its digital transformation strategy.

The two firms have been working together since 2010. However, this extension will see Rolls-Royce more readily adopt key features and developments of industry 4.0 such as AI and automation.

“This is an example of how we intend to unleash data innovation through collaboration,” said Neil Crockett, Chief Digital Officer of Rolls-Royce. “TCS is an outstanding partner with excellent experience in delivering a flexible and agile platform capability across many different markets.”

TCS, headquartered in Mumbai, will aim to help Rolls-Royce in this venture by improving its existing services and driving its development and growth using the TCS Connected Universe Platform – a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering that better enables the development and deployment of IoT applications.

“TCS’s Connected Universe Platform with its services and solutions offer a wealth of functionalities that will allow Rolls-Royce to more easily develop, deploy, and launch products and services to the market quickly,” said Rajesh Gopinathan, CEO and Managing Director of TCS. “Organisations are increasingly building upon a digital foundation to transform their businesses, and TCS is actively guiding our customers to become increasingly more intelligent, automated and agile.” 

Rolls-Royce’s expanded partnership with TCS builds on an existing partnership with Microsoft, agreed in 2016, that will now position the company as a strong industry influence, with two leading digital service providers at its side.
