Partnership evolution announced by COCUS and TUI

At COCUS, our goal is to connect industries and empower inno­vations. We develop sustainable and individual digital solutions for and with our customers. We set-up, manage and scale-up software delivery centres with the option to transfer the delivery center to the customer, as part of our BOT propo­sition (Build-Operate-Transfer). We offer and work with the complex parts of software, infra­­structure, data, security, connectivity and operations, so that our customers don‘t have to.

In 2017 TUI and COCUS established a partner­­ship to deliver a Software Develop­ment Hub in Portugal, supporting TUI’s digital trans­for­mation in the areas of Mobile & Web Develop­ment, Data & Analytics, and Cloud Techno­logies.

Over the past 5 years, both parties have colla­borated extensively to make a signi­ficant impact on the business, covering diverse IT domains with 19 agile teams. Additionally, COCUS and TUI have established a presence within the Portuguese techno­logy eco­system.

This agreement encompassed the establish­ment and management of local operations in Portugal, which included soft­ware delivery, staffing, training, and various shared services. The transfer of the hub to TUI was an antici­pated option, marking the natural progression of a success­ful and mature near­shore operation.

Given the success of the digital accel­era­tion hub and the proven benefits for TUI, both parties have now reached an agree­ment to transfer this hub during the second half of 2023. They will work together to ensure a seamless transition, involving more than 120 skilled engineers.

COCUS operations in Portugal will continue to support other existing customers by leveraging emerging techno­­logies. This year, we have also announced our expansion into two new areas: Cyber­security and Private Mobile 5G networks.
