At the Nexus Illuminate Awards held in San Fransisco last week, Tata Consulting Services, the global IT services, consulting and business solutions firm, won the top prize for its nearshoring services.

Tata Consulting Services (TCS) began its operations in Brazil in the early 1990’s and has since grown have over 8,000 professionals across the Latin America. Today, the firm boasts offices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay which provide an extensive range of professional and nearshoring services for their global partners in United States, Europe and beyond.

Having expanded steadily for the past two decades, the consulting firm’s Latin American business leads the way among developing markets. TCS’s strategy for the region is to focus on building its technology advisory services offerings as well as further introducing it’s automation and digital capabilities to the Latin markets. 

The firm has one of the largest nearshoring presences in Latin America and is increasingly offering Technology 4.0 solutions including big data, analytics, mobile, IoT, AI, RPA and cloud migration services. Notably TCS has helped put Queretaro and Guadalajara in Mexico and Montevideo, Uruguay on the nearshoring radar. 

TCS has been on a path to solidify their presence across the region by growing with their clients and industries within which they work as well.
