Rolls-Royce accelerates digital transformation with TCS

Posted 15 November 2017 · Add Comment

Rolls-Royce and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have expanded their long-standing partnership in order to exploit future data innovation opportunities.


The partnership will help Rolls-Royce to accelerate its digital transformation, deliver further value to customers, improve existing services and create new areas of growth.

As part of this agreement, TCS will provide digital platform capability, allowing data to be captured, shared and analysed more easily across Rolls-Royce, so that new products and services can be developed at pace. This will enable Rolls-Royce to use data to innovate within all of its businesses and collaborate more effectively with partners and customers.

Neil Crockett, Rolls-Royce, Chief Digital Officer, said: “This is an example of how we intend to unleash data innovation through collaboration. TCS is an outstanding partner with excellent experience in delivering a flexible and agile platform capability across many different markets. We expect to be able to realise both short-term and long-term benefits through collaboration with partners and customers on the TCS IoT Platform. It will allow us to take advantage of fast-paced data innovation – including accelerating our application of industrial artificial intelligence – and a range of other cutting edge breakthrough opportunities.”

Rolls-Royce already has more than 20 years of experience in combining its engineering expertise with data analytics, in order to offer operational efficiencies to airline customers. Building on these foundations, alongside progress in many areas of the business, Rolls-Royce is expanding its digital capabilities to deliver increased value from existing services and introduce new services to customers across the group.

Rajesh Gopinathan, CEO and Managing Director of Tata Consultancy Services said: “TCS is honoured to be part of this continuing Digital Transformation journey for Rolls-Royce. Our IoT Platform and Solutions offer a wealth of functionalities that will allow Rolls-Royce to more easily develop, deploy, and launch products and services to the market quickly. Organisations are increasingly building upon a digital foundation to transform their businesses, and TCS is actively guiding our customers to become increasingly more Intelligent, Automated and Agile. TCS continues to be the global technology partner of choice for navigating and taking advantage of the opportunities in the new Business 4.0 era.”

Rolls-Royce and TCS have been working in partnership on engineering services since 2010 and this extension to that relationship is an example of how Rolls-Royce is collaborating with key partners to enhance digital innovation. It builds on an agreement with Microsoft Corp announced in July 2016 and positions Rolls-Royce alongside two globally recognised digital services providers.
