IT services and consulting firm Tata Consultancy Services has announced the launch of the TCS Global Center of Excellence in support of SAP HANA appliance software. The announcement was made at the SAP® TechEd 2011 Las Vegas conference.
SAP HANA is an appliance that combines SAP in-memory technology with hardware from SAP partners allowing organizations to gain instant insight into their business operations, so they can analyze all available data and quickly react to rapidly changing business conditions. The TCS Global CoE in support of SAP HANA will enable research and development focused on building applications for high-speed analytics and managing performance-intensive business transactions on the SAP platform. The CoE resides within and is closely integrated with the existing TCS CoE global landscape, which includes centers in Europe, Latin America and India.
“Technologies like SAP HANA have converged with business to make enterprise intelligence possible, which further underscores the need for such offerings,” said Raman Venkatraman, vice president & global head, SAP Practice, Tata Consultancy Services. “By incorporating SAP HANA into our offering we are further enabled to better bring a flexible, cost-effective, real-time approach to performance-driven data analytics for our clients.”
