About

Tata Consultancy Services’ 14th annual TCS Summit will be held September 9-11, 2018 at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina in San Diego, CA. This exclusive invitation-only gathering, focused on Business 4.0: Going Agile in a Machine First World, will bring together distinguished executives, speakers and business leaders for an enriching, collaborative discussion of strategic content and insightful perspectives.

Global companies are increasingly leveraging the combined effect of digital technologies to be “future fit,” helping to drive business decisions, growth and their transformation journeys. At TCS, we call this amalgamation of business and technology Business 4.0, where organizations are becoming more intelligent, agile, automated, and on the cloud. They are shifting mind-sets from one of optimizing scarce resources to that of harnessing an abundance of resources, capital and talent. In turn, they are characterized by their ability to mass personalize, actively leverage ecosystems and embrace risk in delivering exponential growth.

TCS Summit 2018 will showcase how global companies across industries are adopting a Business 4.0 framework. How the cloud is powering location independent agile methodologies at scale—allowing enterprises to meet ‘on-demand’ customer expectations, significantly compress innovation project life cycles and deliver differentiated value. And how artificial intelligence, automation and robotics require a vast sea-change in conventional thinking regarding human-machine collaboration—where humans give machines the first right of refusal on time intensive and complex tasks, and human productivity and customer experiences are elevated to new heights.
