IT major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Wednesday said it has inked a multi-year outsourcing contract with Telenor Norway.

The contract comprises IT application maintenance and development services and will involve modernisation of Telenor Norway’s application portfolio across its fixed, mobile, data warehouse and accounting system domains, a release said here.

Through the initiative Telenor Norway will improve its operational efficiency, refresh its IT stack and will become more agile to respond to its customers’ changing needs, it said.

Telenor is a leading mobile communications services provider to customers in 13 markets across Asia and Europe.

“This contract underscores TCS’s ability to help global corporations optimise its ‘run the business’ cost and channel those savings to undertake modernisation projects that are delivered with reduced risk and increased certainty,” said TCS Vice President and Head of Europe A.S. Lakshminarayanan.

“Our selection by Telenor to drive this modernisation demonstrates the headway we have been making in the Nordic market and highlights our strong telecom domain expertise,” he said.
