The report analyzed more than 2,500 data points with 11 leading global IT Service providers in mobility, analytics and cloud, who were ranked in HfS' annual enterprise buyer survey. Interviews were conducted and data was collected during Q4 2013 through Q2 2014, covering buyers, providers, advisors, and influencers of digital transformation services. Ratings were based on the evaluation of service provider's offerings, structure and strategy in innovation and execution.

TCS' key strengths identified in the report were: one of the strongest organizational delivery focuses for Digital of any provider; convergence of enabling technologies such as mobility, pervasive computing, big data, analytics, cloud, and social as part of TCS' Digital Reimagination™ strategy to transform the way an enterprise gets business done; user experience design beyond the realm of art and into the realm of science with its Mobility Usability Test Lab and Digital Creative Design Lab; investment into Intellectual Property that allows businesses to quickly and affordably adopt digital technology; its go-to market strategy tailored to specific industry needs; and its cloud infrastructure and integration capabilities. The report also cites that, "Digital is a clear priority for TCS and it has organized itself for delivering results."

"TCS has helped its clients in the three categories of their digital journeys - digitization, digital transformation and Digital Reimagination™. We have completed thousands of client engagements for hundreds of customers, have filed more than 38 patents, made more than 50 open source contributions, and have created more than 25 digital products so that we can comprehensively serve our customers' digital needs," said Dr. Satya Ramaswamy, Global Head, Digital Enterprise Unit at TCS. "When combined with the deep domain knowledge of our industry experts, the above strengths in the digital arena can indeed be the game changer for our customers to win in their competitive markets. We are glad that HfS Research has positioned us as a Front Runner in Digital Transformation Services based on their extensive research of the market and enterprise buyers."

The HfS' report concludes that "TCS has made Digital a priority, and it shows as the company ranks high across every point in the Digital Big MAC (Mobility, Analytics and Cloud) and among enterprise buyers. Given the prominence Digital already plays for the company today with its "Digital Reimagination" initiative built around what it identifies as five forces enabling transformation, we expect TCS to hold this leadership position as it continues to invest around creating leading edge solutions for emerging enterprise needs."
