The annual report on the most valuable IT services brands.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is the star of the IT Services sector this year, adding US$1.3 billion of value to its brand, which is now worth $10.4 billion. TCS’s growth contrasts with stagnation in the sector, which saw the combined value of the 13 brands in both 2017 and 2018’s rankings slip 1% to US$94.4 billion.

Spending on traditional IT outsourcing has reached a natural limit and companies have been slow to reposition around value-added services with a few exceptions. TCS has done a great job over the past 4-5 years shifting perceptions, positioning themselves as an international company at the forefront of technological developments, which is a fair reflection as that is where they generate the majority of revenues and where they are expanding.
