Tata Consultancy Services has been selected by Skanska as a strategic partner to help achieve its ambition of becoming the most digitally advanced company in the construction industry. As a part of this multi-year partnership, TCS will leverage its Machine FirstTM Delivery Model framework to streamline Skanska's journey to the cloud and help it transition to a more proactive IT model with automated processes, such as a chatbot for support services. TCS will also be responsible for the application management of the company's Oracle Cloud applications across finance, projects, procurement, supply chain, human capital management and analytics planning functions. By moving IT operations to the cloud and driving automation, Skanska's IT employees will be freed up from routine support activities and can focus on more sophisticated, value-adding tasks. TCS' MFDM leverages automation, robotics and artificial intelligence to help enterprises achieve their business outcomes faster, with reduced risk by giving technology the first right of refusal in the performance of tasks. Automating basic, repetitive tasks, enables humans to evolve from being the performers of work to becoming the harbingers of transformation and enables enterprises to capitalize on highly reliable services that open up a world of business and digital opportunities.
