MapR Logo - New 2014_FEATURETata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has announced a new partnership with MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the highly ranked distribution for Apache™ Hadoop®, to help enterprise customers easily and rapidly capture critical big data insights. The partnership’s new big data offerings will shift the IT cost curve and allow companies to strategically reimagine their business models.

Gartner predicts the market size of Business Intelligence/Performance Management and Analytics to be $96 billion by 2016, with Big Data IT services representing almost half of that figure at $43.7 billion. Big data spending will be a combination of upgrades, replacements and ‘net new’ projects, taking advantage of new data-driven business models, innovative products and services, and predictable pricing models. This overcomes previous barriers of information silos and lack of IT analytics systems.

At TCS, we are on a mission to help our customers reimagine their businesses by leveraging big data in combination with other digital forces to redefine their existing business models, create new data-driven products and services, redraw target segments, create new channels, and also change their business processes and workplaces,” said Dr. Satya Ramaswamy, global head of TCS Digital Enterprise, Tata Consultancy Services. “Our partnership with MapR in the big data space is already delivering measurable business benefits for customers and we look forward to expanding this alliance to jointly pursue other opportunities where we have deep expertise.”
