Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Woolworths Group have expanded their partnership to provide IT and digital services, including establishing DevOps teams, to enable faster time to market and respond to the dynamic needs of the business.
The expanded partnership will see TCS leveraging its global scale and investments to drive cloud adoption, evolution of data platforms to support deeper business analytics and insights, cyber security efforts, and other key digital initiatives in Woolworths’ growth and transformation agenda. Further, TCS will embed Agile / DevOps into the ways of working and establish mature DevOps practises and tool chains across multiple systems.
TCS has been Woolworths’ strategic partner for over 20 years and has been involved in several transformation initiatives across the retail value chain, including an SAP implementation and roll-out, range and space optimisation, supply chain programs, stores transformation, and digital initiatives.
“TCS is a global leader in IT services, digital and business solutions with deep expertise in the retail vertical. As a result of working together over the past 24 years across a range of areas, we understand each other’s businesses and ways of working,” said John Hunt, Chief Information Officer, Woolworths Group.
“We are very pleased to expand and extend our strategic partnership with Woolworths. We believe our contextual knowledge, digital capabilities and investments in research and innovation, position us well to help Woolworths realise its transformation objectives. We are excited to be part of this journey and look forward to strengthening the partnership further,” said Ganesa Subramanian Vaikuntam, Business Unit Head, Retail Cluster – A&NZ, TCS.
