Further consolidating its presence in the IT arena, Indian consulting giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has inaugurated a new Software Development Facility in Mumbai, India. Fully equipped with the latest technology and extensive facilities for its employees, the centre will act as a nucleus for operations across the country.
Over the past few years, TCS has been substantially building its IT presence in India, alongside its other services in the areas of business solutions. The consulting firm is currently the country’s top IT company by market capitalisation, ahead of other major players such a Wipro and Infosys. The firm has been staying atop market trends, having developed expertise in the cloud arena in keeping with the growing demand for cloud transitions across the country. Last month, the firm was involved in the first ever complete transition of an airline company to a cloud platform, supporting Malaysian airlines with the migration.
TCS is hoping to consolidate this success in the software arena, and their latest step towards this goal is a grand one. The firm has now inaugurated the TCS Olympus Centre in the Thane district of Mumbai, which is a software development facility capable of accommodating approximately 30,000 employees when developed to maximum capacity. The centre represents the latest, and one of the largest of TCS’s software development and delivery centres across the globe.

TCS inaugurates new delivery centre in Mumbai for 30,000 employeesThe facility is due to be launched in two phases, the first of which has been launched last week. The inauguration itself was a grand affair, being led by the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis, and facilitated by N. Chandrasekharan, Chairman of the Tata Group, and Rajesh Gopinathan, CEO and Managing Director for TCS. The ceremony was also attended by a number of important government and business officials from across the financial community.
Commenting on the inauguration, CEO Gopinathan said, “TCS has played a pioneering role to make Maharashtra an attractive IT destination for global companies. We have helped drive technology-led growth by investing in talented youth of the state and building long-term partnerships with state institutions.” He added, “We are delighted to launch our new next-gen workplace, which provides Collaborative Agile workspaces, Software-Defined Network, Security Operations Centre and a Cloud-enabled infrastructure. The facility will help TCS further drive the next phase of its growth.”
Alongside state-of-the-art technological facilities, the centre offers its staff modern facilities such as a training block, a club house and a gymnasium. Moreover, the facility also scores points for environmental sustainability, having been developed with a focus on ‘green’ mechanisms including rainwater harvesting, sewage treatment, and low-emission systems. The centre will act as the heart of the firm’s operations across Maharashtra, and will generate substantial business and employment opportunities.
