India's TCS: Mexico Operation Unaffected by Swine Flu

MUMBAI: India's largest IT company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) said that the outbreak of swine flu has had no bearing on its business in Mexico. TCS, apart from having a large operation in Mexico, runs a global delivery center in Mexico's second-largest city, Guadalajara.

According to TCS managing director and chief executive officer, S. Ramadorai, the situation in Mexico is being closely monitored. "No project is on hold at this stage. Every employee of ours has been carefully checked," he said. TCS, which set up operations in Mexico in 2003, has a staff strength of 1,400. The company provides IT services and solutions to large Mexican companies across a host of sectors.

"Our operation in Guadalajara is situated at quite a distance from where the swine flu has made an impact. Currently, there are no issues," said TCS chief operating officer N. Chandrasekharan. He clarified that a big chunk of the 1,400 employees comprised the local population.

TCS's global delivery center facility caters to the needs of local clients apart from providing near-shore services to companies based in the U.S. Importantly, the World Health Organization has termed swine flu as a "public health emergency of international concern." At this point in time, swine flu is believed to have affected the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Spain and New Zealand.

Guadalajara, which is also the capital city of the Mexican state of Jalisco, is also home to larger technology majors, such as IBM, General Electric, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Flextronics and Hitachi. It is the primary software producer in Mexico. Guadalajara is often called the "Mexican Silicon Valley."

As far as TCS is concerned, Mexico is one among over 40 countries where it is present globally. The company's footprint is spread across the US, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.
