im­print­ing suc­cess

Leav­ing foot­prints of im­pres­sive per­for­mance in FY12, Tech Mahin­dra marches ahead with a promis­ing fu­ture


Tech Mahin­dra, over the years, has strength­ened its port­fo­lio and ex­celled across broad spec­trum of ser­vices in­clud­ing busi­ness sup­port sys­tems (BSS), op­er­a­tions sup­port sys­tems (OSS), net­work de­sign and en­gi­neer­ing, nextgen­er­a­tion net­works, mo­bil­ity so­lu­tions, se­cu­rity con­sult­ing, and test­ing.

With to­tal rev­enue at Rs 5,321 crore in FQ12, the com­pany showed steady growth of 5% over FQ11 con­sid­er­ing the over­all tele­com soft­ware mar­ket only grew 7% last fis­cal. The con­sis­tent growth can be at­trib­uted to the mul­ti­ple deals it bagged dur­ing the last fis­cal, not only on home grounds but also glob­ally.

Ex­celling in its of­fer­ings, the com­pany added many global clients to its kitty last fis­cal. A leading Euro­pean telco chose Tech Mahin­dra for man­ag­ing the op­er­a­tion and de­liv­ery of Ven­dor Ac­cess Ser­vices (VAS). The Mahin­dra Group owned com­pany also signed a deal with a leading global telco for trans­for­ma­tion of its sales op­er­a­tions sys­tem.

The com­pany also won a a multi-year mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar deal to pro­vide pro­duc­tion sup­port for mis­sion crit­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions cov­er­ing cus­tomer care and me­di­a­tion pro­cesses in the ar­eas of LTE (mo­bil­ity 4G) and IT net­work de­liv­ery for a tier-I op­er­a­tor in North Amer­ica. This was not all, the com­pany won an­other multi-year deal with a Euro­pean telco for man­ag­ing its uni­fied tick­et­ing sys­tem im­ple­men­ta­tion. As a part of this deal, Tech M will be im­ple­ment­ing BMC ITSM suite in two of the client’s Euro­pean lo­ca­tions. With this win, the Pune head­quar­tered firm made a promis­ing en­try into the client’s ‘pre­ferred sup­pli­ers list for OSS do­main’.

The list does not end here. Bahrain based in­ter­net ser­vice provider, Me- nat­ele­com ap­pointed Tech Mahin­dra to man­age op­er­a­tion F busi­ness sup­port sys­tems for its WiMax 16e net­work ex­pan­sion. Tech M also col­lab­o­rated with Red Onee and launched ‘telco-in-a-box‚ so­lu­tion at Mo­bile World Congress, Barcelona.

On home grounds, Tech M along with Mahin­dra Satyam an­nounced the sign­ing of a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with In­dian Sta­tis­ti­cal In­sti­tute (ISI) for broad col­lab­o­ra­tion in the field of an­a­lyt­ics for the tele­com ver­ti­cal. The MoU will lever­age com­pa­nies do­main strengths and lead­er­ship along with ISI’s aca­demic bril­liance in the field of an­a­lyt­ics to de­velop joint so­lu­tions in data min­ing and data an­a­lyt­ics.

Tech M in­au­gu­rated per­for­mance en­gi­neer­ing lab in Pune demon­strat­ing com­mit­ment to in­no­va­tion and help­ing the client to re­duce the time-to-mar­ket and en­hances end-user ex­pe­ri­ence.

The lab in the mould of in­no­va­tion/ca­pa­bil­ity fac­tory will help Tech Mahin­dra to build new ca­pa­bil­i­ties and also serve-as-aplat­form to train the as­so­ci­ates.

The big­gest strate­gic de­vel­op­ment the com­pany wit­nessed was in the fourthquar­ter, ie, the merger with Mahin­dra Satyam. This com­bined en­tity en­com­passes great po­ten­tial to emerge as one of In­dia’s largest IT com­pa­nies.

Tech M strate­gi­cally in­tended to progress in cloud do­main as cloud ad­viser by open­ing its cloud com­pe­tency lab at its Hin­je­w­adi fa­cil­ity in Pune. The com­pany plans to help its cus­tomers to choose from the best-of-breed tech­nolo­gies avail­able in cloud ser­vices ecosys­tem.

Ex­clu­sively fo­cus­ing on the com­mu­ni­ca­tions in­dus­try, Tech M is al­ready pro­vid­ing mo­bile de­vice and ap­pli­ca­tion cer­ti­fi­ca­tion ser­vices to sev­eral North Amer­i­can telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions providers and de­vice man­u­fac­tur­ers.

To con­tinue this legacy, Tech Mahin­dra in­au­gu­rated its in­no­va­tion cen­ter for mo­bil­ity so­lu­tions in Toronto at the 2011 Cana­dian Tele­com Sum­mit.

Tech M made this in­vest­ment in Toronto af­ter it got se­lected by a Cana­dian telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions provider for cer­ti­fi­ca­tion ser­vices of mo­bile de­vices. This Toronto In­no­va­tion Cen­ter will en­able Tech Mahin­dra (through its sub­sidiary for mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions, Can­vasM Tech­nolo­gies) to of­fer mo­bile de­vice cer­ti­fi­ca­tion ser­vices in a va­ri­ety of ar­eas in­clud­ing ap­pli­ca­tion test­ing, field test­ing, in­ter­op­er­abil­ity test­ing, and per­for­mance test­ing with ex­per­tise in 3G/HSPA+/LTE.

Tech Mahin­dra has al­ready in­vested in sim­i­lar in­no­va­tion labs for mo­bil­ity so­lu­tions in Seat­tle (USA) and New Delhi (In­dia).
