        The enterprise PC landscape is filled with many resource and management challenges, which IT managers must address to ensure cost-effective operations and high levels of service, often on a limited or shrinking budget. Managing PC infrastructure in this challenging environment requires that PC management costs be minimized. To help realize these goals, organizations need to have world-class IT resources dedicated to designing, implementing, and maintaining its IT infrastructure.
        This paper highlights the capabilities, expertise, and resources of Tata Consultancy Services, a global IT solutions and services provider that is engaged by enterprises throughout the world. Tata Consultancy Services helps its customers design, implement, and maintain their PC environments and IT infrastructures with the objectives of ensuring infrastructure optimization (IO) and reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).
        Engaging Tata Consultancy Services for IO assessment, deployment, and ongoing systems management services is one of three recommended strategies that IT managers can use to improve IT efficiency and reduce TCO. The other strategies—adopting PC-related best practices and deploying Microsoft applications and technologies—reflect the results of five PC management studies conducted by IDC and sponsored by Microsoft in 2005 and 2006.
