US Tribune Publishing contracts TCS for IT outsourcing

Chicago-based Tribune Publishing Co, owner of prestigious US dailies such as the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune, has picked Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) for its IT outsourcing. Tribune told its IT employees in April that it is moving work to India-based TCS, but did not say how many employees would be hit by such a move. Tribune said it has made the strategic decision to outsource key functions of its legacy IT department to drive its overall business transformation. TCS also operates outsourcing centers in the Philippines.
