Mumbai (BSE) & New York (NYSE), December 01, 2011

Mumbai (BSE) & New York (NYSE) – 1 December 2011 – Tata Communications, a leading provider of The New World of Communications, today announces yet another addition to its InstaApps Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) portfolio in the form of Human Capital Management (HCM) –InstaHCM™.

InstaHCM will launch in partnership with SuccessFactors, Inc. (NYSE: SFSF), the global leader in cloud-based business execution software. Together, Tata Communications and SuccessFactors will bring India-based enterprise customers a secure and scalable set of business execution software to help align their workforces, execute business strategies, identify high and low performers and increase business productivity, all in the cloud. Tata Communications’ InstaHCM cloud service launch will mark the first telecommunications company in India to offer an SaaS-based Human Capital Management application.

“Talent retention, a productive workforce, business alignment and employee development are key areas of focus for any enterprise. Development and implementation of dedicated HR tools to address these issues is becoming increasingly important for enterprises that want to harness human resource intelligence to empower employees. By providing visibility into these aspects of a company’s business, employees can better collaborate and communicate, significantly improving organisational productivity,” says Sumeet Walia, Senior Vice President, India and APAC, Tata Communications.

The pay-per-use InstaHCM service enables businesses to quickly and easily tap into scalable, global IT infrastructure via the Internet, without the usual cost and complexities associated with IT provisioning, helping to control operational expenses.

“With a significant customer base in India, Tata Communications has a strong presence in the country and a deep understanding of the emerging Indian marketplace,” says Mercedes Ellison, Vice President of Global Alliances and Channels, SuccessFactors. “The demand for cloud computing continues to mature and grow and SuccessFactors is one of the leading vendors spearheading global cloud-computing with approximately 15 million subscription seats and more than 3,500 customers. A partnership with Tata Communications is a fantastic opportunity for SuccessFactors to expand its influence amongst leading Indian enterprises.”

Tata Communications’ InstaHCM cloud service suite combines the best of both worlds – its robust global cloud platform and rich understanding of the unique needs of India’s enterprise market, together with the strength and reliability of Success Factors’ Business Execution Suite.
