Mobility, social media, cloud and analytics/business intelligence are major buzz areas for organisations in the region, according to Girija Pande, the chairman of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Asia Pacific.
"Across Asia Pacific, we are seeing considerable interest from organisations seeking to transform, grow and accelerate their knowledge, reach, capabilities and operations using these technologies," said Pande.
Pande painted a positive outlook for TCS, who had signed large customers like Deustche Bank, entered into partnerships, started delivery centres and grew its team in recent months.
"Traditional" areas of IT services such as outsourcing, BPO and IT infrastructure services are enjoying strong growth too, as organisations look to centralise global operations in the region and leverage on IT to support growth.
"I would like to particularly mention the challenge of urbanisation in AP and China in particular which is actively seeking to create new 'intelligent/smart cities using cloud technologies' which we are very much involved in," said Pande. "Our TCS/SMU Lab in Singapore has been setup to create unique solutions for such initiatives," he added.
