Stockholm, July 17, 2012: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, announced that it has entered into a multi-yearagreement with Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), wherein SAS will adopt TCS' Finance & Accounting (F&A) platform for its operations across 30+ countries. Founded in 1946, SAS is the Scandinavian region's largest airline and holds the reputation of being Europe's most punctual airline.

"The selected TCS platform addresses the key objectives SAS defined from the project's inception - to simplify, standardize and automate processes with one solution instead of multiple solutions, as well as to integrate best practices and drive productivity improvements. Additionally, TCS' experience with large scale strategic projects and the partnership-based approach towards their customers was especially appealing to us," said Håkan Borglund, Vice President Back Office Systems, SAS Group.

The agreement underscores TCS' non-linear growth strategy in key markets. TCS' F&A platform provides pre-built and pre-configured financial processes and tools, which make it an efficient and rapid solution to implement. It will be provisioned under a Cloud model including infrastructure, applications, IT maintenance and multiple platform developments over the duration of the engagement. The platform is designed to conform to the latest global statutory and legal norms, such as IFRS and GAAP.

"SAS is renowned for being the most punctual airline in Europe. TCS' F&A Platform, with its metrics-driven delivery model, will assure SAS of accuracy, timeliness and total control over its financial processes. We look forward to working with SAS and providing them the benefits of an industry leading solution that is enriched by our global best practices," said Raj Agrawal, Global Head, TCS' Platform Solutions.

TCS' Nordic operations comprise over 4,500 professionals working across Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark and Iceland. TCS had recently been recognized by a KPMG surveyof 340 top Nordic companies as the #1 company in terms of customer satisfaction for the third consecutive year.

"One of our defining values is to help customers lead change. We have been advising over 75 clients toward the evolution of their cloud strategies and helping them stay ahead of the curve in their industries. SAS' choice reconfirms the findings from TCS' 2012 cloud adoption studyof over 600 large global companies, which concluded that the needs to standardize business operations and underlying applications along with flexibility are the two most significant drivers for cloud adoption," saidAmit Bajaj, Head, Nordic and Baltic Region, TCS.
