A recent Gartner report predicts Tata will achieve mega-vendor status in 2011. In 2009, Tata launched an SAP-based Provider Performance Insight business intelligence tool and a “pay-as-you-go” IT as a service business concept. It formed alliances with Cisco Technology Lab and NetApp. Outgoing chief executive Subramanian Ramadorai, who was replaced by Chandrasekaran in October, told reporters in August that the “drastic downturn behind us” and the “deal pipeline is good”.

He said Tata was eyeing integration work in the US financial sector and promising areas included finance, retail, utilities and life science, although he expected telecoms and manufacturing to remain sluggish. The company claims 35 percent year-on-year growth in the Asia-Pacific region.

Sales in Australia grew via the acquisitions of technology consulting firm TCSM in 2006 and core banking system provider FNS in 2005. Future growth initiatives involve asset leveraged solutions, platform-based business

process outsourcing and SME initiatives. Darren Greenwood
