Gopinathan, in a letter to shareholders, also said that at the current rate of growth, it is only a matter of time before TCS doubles its revenue and hits the $50 billion mark.

To take this step and stay focused on its customer, TCS deployed a new organizational structure. The company reorganized the existing units into three business groups.

These three groups are; the relationship incubation group that will provide the delivery-focused, high-engagement, high-contact model that new customers need. Enterprise Growth Group which brings together the capabilities of different service lines to assemble solutions that meet the business needs of customers when the relationship is in its hyper-growth phase; and finally the business transformation group which will manage the most important customers and help them achieve their growth and transformation objectives.

“This purpose-built new organizational structure, along with continued investments in building new capabilities, next-generation delivery models and assets that help our customers innovate at scale and build our brand, will help us deepen our relationships with our customers, expand our addressable market, gain market share and fuel growth in the years to come. We thank you for your continued support on this exciting journey ahead,” Gopinathan said.
