Tata Consultancy Services Ltd Chairman Speech

Dear Stakeholder,

Even as I write this, India and many other parts of the world are in the grip of second or even third waves of the pandemic, much fiercer than anything we saw last year. It is a health crisis of the kind we have not seen in generations. My heart goes out to everyone out there who has suffered the loss of loved ones. I am confident we will eventually get it under control, but until then, I urge you to stay safe, follow covid discipline, get vaccinated if you are eligible and keep your spirits up.

On the business front, your company weathered the pandemic very well. It adapted quickly and embraced a new operating model that prioritized the health and wellbeing of its employees, while enabling it to continue supporting its customers not just in their mission-critical operations but also in their growth and transformation journeys. Its Vision 25x25 and pioneering work around talent clouds have reinforced its credentials as a thought leader on the future of work, and a trend setter in the industry.

TCS' agility, resilience and responsiveness during the crisis earned it tremendous goodwill from customers and enhanced its standing in the market. After the initial impact from lockdown-related disruptions, it swiftly returned to a sharp growth trajectory over the next nine months, and exited the year on a very strong note, with an expanded market share, industry-leading profitability and an all-time high order book.

Technological change is far more perceptible when it comes to consumer technology, and less so in the enterprise world. Enterprise adoption of new technologies tends to be very measured, and it is only much later, with the benefit of hindsight, that the scale of change and the key inflection points become more evident. To my mind, the year gone by saw an important inflection point thathas s of the huge ramifications on enterprise consumption of technology in the coming years, and on demand for your company's services.

The pressing need for operational resilience and for enhancing customer experiences in digital channels accelerated enterprise decision-making, committing to future technology investments around the all-encompassing hyperscaler cloud stacks. This represents an important inflection point in the enterprise embrace of the cloud, and will drive significant spending on migrating workloads to public clouds in the coming years.

Moving workloads to the cloud is just the start of their digital transformation journeys. The rich native capabilities of these stacks, particularly in the areas of analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence open up a vast array of possibilities for enterprises to pursue new business models, address new customer segments, and provide highly personalized, differentiated experiences across the entire customer journey.

Your company is very well positioned to benefit from this multi-year technology upgradation cycle, and help customers translate their transformative visions into reality. To better articulate its mission and its aspirations, your company adopted a new brand statement this year, RsBuilding on Belief'. I think it describes what TCS does very accurately, and also Group and its evolution reflectsthe over the last century and a half.

Your company has been guided by a set of strong beliefs, right from the time it was founded. Belief in our core values, belief in putting the customer above all, belief in investing in people and empowering them, belief in constantly trying out new ideas and models, and belief in doing right by all the stakeholder communities we work with. This is why the new brand statement resonates so well, and feels so right.

Looking ahead, your company sees immense opportunities for growth, riding the new technology cycle that has kicked off, powered by the belief that its differentiated capabilities and collaborative, solution-centric approach makes it the preferred transformation partner of its customers. It is building on that belief, and investing in sharpening the capabilities needed to expand its footprint in this large opportunity.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Tata Consultancy Services, I want to thank you for your continued trust, confidence, and support.

Warm regards,
N Chandrasekaran
Chairman

The SBWS model has been institutionalized and the Company has been able to seamlessly adapt and extend it to prospect for new business, sell, contract and execute programs. This transformative model enables remote access for employees, sets up a suitable cybersecurity framework and all project management practices and systems needed to ensure that work allocation, monitoring and reporting continues without disruption. In this way, the SBWS model ensured that neither the quality nor the timeliness of client deliveries was ever compromised. SBWS is not a short-term response to a crisis, but a new beginning. These new ways of working and managing businesses present a great opportunity to more than just ‘recover' from the consequences of the crisis, but to accelerate transformation.

7. Quality initiatives

TCS' integrated Quality Management System (iQMS ) continues to enable outstanding value and experience to its customers. iQMS is continually enhanced for emerging service erings, new delivery methodologies, off industry best practices and latest technologies. iQMS has been updated with handbooks and guidelines for Agile methodology.

Agile is a method to accelerate the speed of delivery in software development. TCS saw an opportunity to elevate Agile by applying it to everything an organization does spanning market research, innovation, product development, sales, delivery, and support functions, allowing organization wide delivery and innovation at high speeds, breaking departmental barriers and transcending location constraints. TCS calls this as Enterprise Agile. In 2017, TCS declared ‘Enterprise Agile by 2020' as its vision with the goal of transforming TCS along four dimensions: Workforce, Workplace & Infrastructure, Service Delivery, and Internal Processes. Implementation was accomplished in three waves for (1) IT Services, (2) Cognitive Business Operations and (3)

Enablement Functions such as HR, Marketing, Administration, IT Infrastructure, Delivery Excellence, Internal IT, and Research.

While standard Agile pushes for collaboration within a physical setting, TCS had to invent a method to bring agility without the need for physical co-location of teams. TCS created the Location Independent Agile providing comprehensive blueprints of team configurations, practices and technology for collaboration such as Open Agile Collaborative Workspace (OACW) so that team members from any part of the world can work together without location constraints.

By converting Agile into a strategic enterprise transformation lever, TCS created many capabilities, including the world's largest Agile workforce. TCS has filed five patents in the Agile space. Today, industry Agile experts and analysts acknowledge TCS' leadership in Agile. TCS handles over 12,000 Agile projects contributing to 85 percent of IT services revenue.

Conservation of energy

The Company saw a year-on-year reduction in absolute energy use by 46.6 percent in MWh and an absolute carbon footprint reduction (across Scope 1 and Scope 2) by 48.8 percent (in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent). This reduction was not commensurate to the extremely low occupancy because some utilities had to be run to maintain the infrastructure. TCS' specific greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 + Scope 2) comes to 0.54 tCO2e/ FTE

(Full Time Equivalent)/Annum in the current reporting year, a reduction of 53 percent Y-O-Y. This is estimated with the actual carbon footprint and a notional FTE (working out of TCS offices), considering an increase of 8.23 percent in the FTE over the last reporting year. This increase in FTE, is in line with the TCS global headcount growth. The specific carbon footprint data is presented for the sake of continuity and is not comparable with the earlier year.

The total rooftop solar energy generation across the campuses increased to 8.1 MWp contributing to 2.5 percent of total electricity use in the reporting year. Total renewable energy used - from rooftop solar power plants and through power purchase agreements was 45.5 million units amounting to 15.6 percent of the total electricity consumption. The Company achieved the target power utilization efficiency (PUE) of 1.65 across 21 of 23 target data centers. The Company has also taken up additional 44 data centers for this initiative and reduced weighted average PUE of all DCs to 1.77 in reporting year from 2.4 in 2017. The Company has focused on temporary closure of ODCs and hub rooms as SBWSTM was approved by customers and all stakeholders, leading to further reduction in energy consumption.

The investment in IoT based energy management system helped the Company to define a new normal of consumption profile, leveraging cognitive AI/ML algorithms and monitoring performance against it to drive efficiency.
