Tata Consultancy Services has launched Engineering Environment as a Service, a cloud-based framework developed on the Red Hat OpenStack Platform. The framework is aimed at helping increase the utilisation of business resources, lower infrastructure footprint and reduce operational costs.

The Engineering Environment as a Service framework enables anytime-anywhere development and test environment to product engineering teams across the globe through a self-service portal, the company said in a statement.

“On-demand availability of development and test engineering environment is not only an infrastructure resource optimisation and consolidation need, it is also an enabler for the adoption of Agile and DevOps models in product engineering,” said V Rajanna, global head, Technology Business Unit, TCS.

“TCS’ Engineering Environment as a Service is an innovative framework utilising digital technologies for geographically dispersed R&D teams.”

“Digital transformation is predicated on scalability at nearly every level of enterprise IT, including research and development and test environment,” said Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager, OpenStack, Red Hat.

“Red Hat OpenStack Platform provides a scalable, flexible foundation for a variety of mission-critical workloads, and we are pleased that TCS is building on it to enable customers in their digital transformation journey,” he said.

In a highly competitive marketplace, where product life-cycles are shortening, agility in engineering environment is essential to accelerate product innovation. The ability to create on-demand engineering environment for development and test can significantly improve the productivity of R&D engineers and reduce product time to market. Engineering Environment as a Service could aid the growing needs of the industry, he added.
