Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the country’s largest information technology (IT) services provider, has planned to launch what it terms ‘SME Cloud’ in a fortnight. Under this, it would provide hosted services for enterprises having a Rs 50-500 crore turnover. “We will be the first Indian IT company to do so,” managing director and CEO N Chandrasekaran said in an interview in Davos, on the sidelines of World Economic Forum.

Though Chandrashekharan refrained from revealing any names of clients, sources familiar with the developments said all 100 SMEs have already signed on, including names such as Oxford Book Store, Kaya Skin Clinic and Ryan International School.  

Chandrasekaran said he was reasonably confident that Indian SMEs would be strong adopters of cloud computing. TCS’ aim is to give more reliable services than what SMEs could manage on their own. Besides, the employees could spend their time better by building value, instead of worrying about choosing, buying, configuring, and babying technology.

By adopting cloud computing, the IT investment cost will be low because there is no need to invest in a server, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions or applications can all be hosted on the cloud. “There will be no opex (operating expenditure) or capex (capital expenditure) if SMEs opt for our new service,” Chandrasekaran said.
