Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Transamerica have mutually agreed to end their $2 billion contract, which was due to expire in 2025. The contract was for the development and maintenance of Transamerica’s IT systems.
In a statement, TCS said that the decision was made “to focus on other strategic opportunities.” Transamerica said that it would be “insourcing” the work that was previously done by TCS.
The end of the contract is a blow to TCS, which is one of the largest IT services companies in the world. The company had been hoping to renew the contract with Transamerica, which is a major client.
The decision by Transamerica to insource the work is a sign of the growing trend of companies taking back control of their IT operations. In recent years, many companies have decided to move away from outsourcing their IT work to third-party providers.
There are a number of reasons for this trend. One reason is that companies are concerned about the security of their data when it is stored on third-party servers. Another reason is that companies want to have more control over how their IT systems are used.
The end of the TCS-Transamerica contract is a sign that this trend is likely to continue. It is likely that we will see more companies insource their IT work in the years to come.
Here are some of the key reasons why Transamerica decided to end the contract with TCS:
- Security concerns: Transamerica was concerned about the security of its data when it was stored on TCS’s servers.
- Control: Transamerica wanted to have more control over how its IT systems were used.
- Cost: Transamerica may have been able to save money by insourcing the work.
The end of the TCS-Transamerica contract is a blow to TCS, but it is also a sign of the growing trend of companies taking back control of their IT operations. It is likely that we will see more companies insource their IT work in the years to come.
