The biggest IT services provider in India, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), announced on Thursday that it would train 25,000 engineers in generative artificial intelligence tools and services from OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT..
The Azure cloud platform from Microsoft will host and deliver generative AI services, making this service available to clients. Additionally, the company unveiled TCS Generative AI Enterprise Adoption, a generative AI business product that enables companies to install OpenAI’s generative AI business tools on the Azure cloud platform.
According to TCS, the business unit will help clients enhance customer experience, launch new business models, grow revenue, and enhance productivity. The opening of the Azure OpenAI business unit follows TCS’s announcement on May 22 of a cooperation with Google Cloud to introduce generative AI business products based on Google’s cloud infrastructure.
The company’s technology innovation centers, also referred to as TCS Pace Ports, are located in the US, Canada, the Netherlands, and Japan, and they will serve as the bases of research and engineering for both Microsoft and Google’s cloud-based generative AI solutions.
The current batch of 25,000 people will be expressly certified in Azure OpenAI skills to meet customer demand in TCS’s new business unit, despite the fact that the company already has 50,000 employees who have received AI training.
