The 60-member strong organization advocates—for its members—international policies that help its members gain access to new markets, promote innovation and leadership, expand e-commerce activities, and undertake sustainability initiatives. All of these activities are geared towards making its members more competitive on an international level.
In his statement on the development, the president and CEO of ITI, Dean Garfield said that the organization was excited about having TCS on board, especially since the company ranks among the most well-recognized players in the IT marketplace. This also makes TCS the first Indian-headquartered company to join the ranks of its contemporaries in the ITI. According to Garfield, TCS’s addition to the ITI comes at an opportune time, when many companies in the industry are making inroads into the Indian market in a bid to engage more with the consumers there.
According to TCS’s president for North America, Europe and UK, Surya Kant, the company stands committed to enabling companies improve their value offerings to customers. He also added that TCS is keen on helping its customers ‘digitally re-imagine’ their service and business offerings across the world.
Kant said that the success of TCS was largely dependent on a highly skilled workforce as well as competitive, open markets, besides developing an environment that fosters the transformation of business.
