TCS attributed its growth to digital revenues which hit $3bn, growing 29 per cent year-on-year.

Rajesh Gopinathan, chief executive and managing director, said: “We added $1.4bn in constant currency revenues during the year and increased our digital revenues sharply as we helped our customers leverage the digital economy. Our digital business grew at 29 per cent annually with most industries showing double digit growth as we steadily increased the number of customers across different revenue bands.”

"Our clients are looking for integrated offerings as they advance their cloud agenda and we have a solid pipeline of deals across markets and industries. On the back of digital adoption, agile, automation and cloud are the themes that we are going to market to drive efficiencies and predictable outcomes across our clients infrastructure, applications and business operations.”
