Jile is a product of Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, or TCS, part of the Tata Group of companies, a large multinational public company with headquarters in Mumbai, India. TCS was founded in 1968 as an IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization. It has 400,000 trained consultants in 46 countries. In its experience, TCS realized that Agile seems to work better for smaller co-located teams than with large distributed teams. Although the market was offering different Agile tools and frameworks, none could adress the difficulty of scaling across various dimensions. So, in 2017, TCS built Jile, a cloud-based Agile DevOps product that can help users scale from small teams to large programs and portfolios.
