how big is Tata (TCS)

Tata Consultancy Services would this year recruit over 30,000 Engineering graduates worldwide, a senior company official has said.
I'd like to put this number in the perspective of the Canadian industry. Thirty thousands engineers is about 20times what Canada is going to crank out in new grads in Computer Engineering and Computer Sciences in 2007. With those numbers it just reinforces my thinking that we're not out there to compete on raw numbers - we're here to compete in niches. After all by our Canadian standards, how many company in Canada have 30,000 people - not that many. In a way the fact that our environment is not encouraging the creating and growth of behemoth the size of TCS, must be turned into a strength - ablity to focus on niches.
