CHENNAI: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has set up a dedicated remote-managed IT infrastructure solution (IT-IS) centre here.

The centre has come up on a 2.50 lakh sq. ft. area off the IT corridor (Velacherry). It can accommodate over 2,500 seats. The centre involved an investment of a little over Rs. 45 crore.

TCS has similar remote-managed infrastructure solution centres in Bangalore and Budapest in Hungary.

The Chennai centre would offer solutions across all slivers like network management, desktop lifecycle management, database management, data centre operations, security services, technical helpdesk and enterprise systems management. These form an end-to-end solution for the IT infrastructure needs of organisations across the globe.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, N. Chandrasekaran, Head (Global Operations), said the IT infrastructure services was a strong growth engine for TCS. The company would provide end-to-end solutions to its customers through remote management of their infrastructure via creation of a centre of excellence by co-locating BPO and infrastructure services. Ravi Viswanathan, Vice-President (Chennai operations), said TCS had `verticalised' its operations. BPO (business process outsourcing) and infrastructure services were two horizontals that were common to all verticals, he pointed out.

Mr. Chandrasekaran said the move into the IT-IS space was in line with the growth plans of TCS. The company had identified five new areas for growth. These were: Consulting, BPO, engineering and industrial services, product and asset based solutions and remote management of infrastructure. Growth had been happening in these areas for the last 18-24 months, he said.

The TCS executives justified the setting up of the centre in Chennai on the ground that the city accounted for the largest number of TCS employees.
