MUMBAI, India, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Tata Consultancy Services (BSE:
532540, NSE: TCS), the leading IT services, consulting and business solutions
organization, today announced that it has been designated a Leader in IT
Organization Redesign Consultancies by Forrester Research, Inc., a leading
independent research company, in its November 2012 report "The Forrester
Wave™: IT Organization Redesign Consultancies, Q4 2012".

Among the attributes that Forrester cited in the report were the company's
evaluation and design work around IT processes; and its ability to help IT
shops reduce costs, consolidate applications, or upgrade processes for a
global organization. In addition, TCS was recognized for having built up its
assets library, which includes an extensive array of reusable assets such as
questionnaires, benchmark data, job descriptions, process models, and others.

The Forrester Wave™ reports evaluate vendors based on criteria set through
past research, user need assessments, vendor strategy, and expert interviews.
After examining all components, a set of initial evaluation criteria is
developed. In this particular report, Forrester Research used this information
to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of seven top IT redesign
consultancies. The seven consultancies were evaluated against 28 criteria
including: current offering, strategy, market presence and nonreference

report author Marc Cecere, Forrester Research. The report also states "TCS
showed us strong methodologies, supported by a wide range of tools, data and
support groups. ...TCS has all the parts we would expect to see of a Leader in
this area."

can rely on to support their needs and help guide them through the IT
transformation process," said Sultan Khan, Global Head IT Strategy &
Governance, TCS. "We pride ourselves on our commitment to delivering
consistent, valuable and forward-looking guidance to our customers. We believe
that being recognized by Forrester Research as a leader is a great honor. We
are constantly striving to be the best partner that we can be for our
