The strong client metrics, industry leading growth in digital services, a very strong order book and deal pipeline are all validations that customers recognize our differentiated capabilities and are picking us for their growth and transformation programs."

Our investments in research and innovation, our deep domain and contextual knowledge, intellectual property and our collaborative approach to co-innovation, have been key to our participation in this opportunity. This quarter, we launched a new brand, TCS PaceT", embodying these capabilities and offering our customers a line of sight to success in a Business 4.0 world."
