This group launched the KM-pilot in mid-1999. At that time, KM in TCS covered nearly every function, from quality assurance to HR management.

It supported more than 60 knowledge assets and was accessible via Ultimax to all TCS associates.

  16. 16. Question 5. How do you think KM tools have changed some key operational processes at TCS, such as bidding for new projects, project development and implementation, customer service, and so on? System development and implementation activities are more likely to be done by TCS in manner that is timely, effective and cost efficient. The same for customer service-by knowing customer requirements and also taking ideas from other industries that are stored in the KM databases, the company can provide new and innovative solutions to resolve customer queries. TCS aims to move up the value chain and to continue to bid for higher level projects, beyond those of maintenance and development.

  17. 17. By accumulating knowledge, it has built capabilities to understand how to service clients through consulting and in other strategic areas. So KM has enabled TCS to continue to move higher-up and to bid for more strategic projects. KM repositories that capture best practices in the projects it has undertaken make the company more efficient in servicing clients. This means it can execute better. Overall, KM tools have become a key strategic resource at the company and all hires are required to learn them as a part of their orientation.

  18. 18. These tools are also the first go-to before starting any project or approaching a client. Knowledge in these databases allows TCS consultants to quickly gather intelligence about the client or similar projects and thus align themselves better with what the client might want. This has led to higher success rate in bidding and in project execution.
