Software major TCS and Rolls-Royce on Wednesday expanded their partnership to explore data innovation opportunities.
This will help the British car firm Rolls-Royce to accelerate its digital transformation and deliver further value to its customers and create growth areas. The companies did not offer financial details of the partnership.
"The partnership will help Rolls-Royce accelerate its 'digital first' vision, deliver further value to customers, improve existing services, accelerate development and deployment times and create new areas of growth," Rolls-Royce said in a statement.
This digital transformation for Rolls-Royce will be supported by TCS' connected universe platform, a platform-as-a-service offering that accelerates development and deployment of the Internet of things applications.
As part of this agreement, TCS will provide IoT digital platform capability, allowing data to be captured, shared and analysed more quickly across Rolls-Royce so that new products and services can be developed at pace, TCS said in a statement.
TCS chief executive Rajesh Gopinathan said the tie-up will allow Rolls-Royce to more easily develop, deploy, and launch products and services to the market quickly.
Neil Crockett, chief digital officer at Rolls-Royce said the partnership is an example of how the company intends to unleash data innovation through collaboration.
