For several years, under its previous CEO N Chandrasekaran, TCSBSE 3.12 % achieved growth rates of 15-16% even when it had hit $10 billion in revenues, way more than the No. 2 player, Infosys, in the Indian IT industry. Then, in the past couple of years

, the company slowed down dramatically as customers looked at newer digital technologies that TCS and others were not fully prepared for. But now, Chandrasekaran’s successor, Rajesh Gopinathan, looks to be bringing the company back to its winning days.

In less than a month, TCS has announced deal wins of nearly $6 billion, including a $690-million contract from Europe’s M&G Prudential that it announced on Tuesday. It’s a stellar feat that has left many in the Indian IT sector in awe of the company’s deep client connects and robust execution engine. TCS appears to have pulled way ahead of rivals Cognizant, Infosys, Wipro and HCL in deal wins.

Last week, TCS bagged a $2.5-billion deal from US insurance company Transamerica to enhance its digital capabilities, and simplify the service of more than 10 million policies into a single-integrated modern platform. In December, it renewed a $2.25-billion contract from television ratings measurement company Nielsen. On Monday, it announced a $400-million deal with Marks & Spencer to transform it into a digital-first business.
