As customers execute the transformation agenda across multiple horizons starting with building a digital core, which touches both their application infrastructure, technology infrastructure and their business and operation transformation initiatives,” TCS Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Rajesh Gopinathan told shareholders on Thursday.

“The horizon two will involve innovating the business models by leveraging the power of data and analytics and finally horizon three which we believe the cloud will enable the creation of purpose lead ecosystem where enterprises will collaborate with other adjacent enterprises to create offerings which benefit to create customer’s purpose,” he said.

“These initiatives together will result in a significant technological transformation across multiple industries, which gives us long-term visibility in overall demand environment and we are gearing up for that,” he added.
