Driving Collaborative Adoption of the Essence Standard
“In this era of ever increasing complexity, it is critical for any consulting company to curtail costs and unnecessary complexity by simplifying the execution & delivery of software development and business transformation projects for its clients. To do so, the consulting company must distill the core of all related different delivery methodologies to an essential unified set. As that is the foundation of the Essence standard promulgated by the SEMAT group and standardized by the OMG, TCS is very interested in leading the path to getting this done.
In order to facilitate the above mentioned task, TCS has engaged with all of its core industry partners like SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and others and also the clients of TCS and is working with the core methodology teams of those companies to help foster the collaborative adoption of the Essence standard and turn this de-jure standard into a de facto standard (i.e a standard also because everyone is using it and not just because, as a very necessary step in that direction, it has been declared a standard by a standards body).”
