MUMBAI, India and NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions global organization, announced today the launch of FIREBIRD PLUS, a new rapid implementation offering for Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM). A Diamond level partner in Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), TCS will leverage its Firebird/Firebird Plus solution along with its proven experience in Oracle Fusion HCM to deploy best-in-class human resource functionality within a fixed scope.
Oracle Fusion HCM applications combine advanced technology – including a complete set of enterprise services in the Oracle Cloud – with integration and best HR practices to enable businesses to proactively manage HR operations while focusing on strategic business initiatives. With Firebird Plus, customers can move from a transaction-based to a process-based approach to streamline HR functions and realize greater return-on-investment. In addition, Firebird Plus provides customers with the flexibility to extend or add on optional services to Oracle Fusion HCM based on their unique needs. The Firebird approach also enables customers to build on their current investment in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) by implementing Oracle Fusion HCM in a coexistence model.
"The launch of Firebird Plus marks another significant milestone as we continue to grow the relationship between TCS and Oracle," said Krishnan Ramanujam, global head of TCS Enterprise Solutions. "Our Diamond level partnership and continued collaboration with Oracle helps ensure that TCS' customers have access to the full suite of Oracle solutions and new products as soon as they come to market."
"As a Diamond level partner, TCS has demonstrated extensive knowledge of Oracle's full software portfolio, including Oracle Fusion HCM, and has a long track record of providing value to our joint customers," said Gretchen Alarcon, vice president, Oracle HCM Strategy. "We look forward to continuing to collaborate with TCS as our clients enter the next phase of human capital management innovation through Oracle Fusion HCM applications."
"After closely working with Oracle in support of this new product, TCS has the knowledge and industry expertise to successfully implement Oracle Fusion HCM and a full HR business process transformation," said Sridhar Bakshi, global head of Oracle Enterprise Solutions at TCS.
TCS' collaboration with Oracle began in 1987, the same year that Oracle first began expanding its product base beyond relational database tools into packaged business applications. Today, TCS is one of only a few global consultancies to have achieved Diamond level status in OPN, the highest level within Oracle PartnerNetwork.
