Business Highlights

  • We are pursuing and winning large outsourcing deals. Service innovations like Global Agile, Virtual Operations and Integrated Application Management continue to provide high levels of differentiation for us in the marketplace and have enabled wins across industry verticals. We have recently entered into a four-year engagement with Toyota Motor Europe to manage its Pan-European application support. This contract covers key operational areas including core automotive processes and corporate functions, under a managed service model.
  • On the Business Transformation front, we have enhanced our scale in emerging markets and our non-linear revenues by leveraging new business models and pricing structures. We continue to leverage our alliances and are driving innovation through industry leading intellectual property and solutions.
  • We continue to strengthen our competencies in Oracle and SAP practices. We have been rated as a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Oracle Application Implementation and Application Management Services, and for SAP Application Management services.
  • Our Products and Platforms business continues to grow at a steady pace with 15 wins this quarter (excluding Finacle™).
  • Finacle™ had 18 new wins across South Asia, South East Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Australia-New Zealand this quarter. We launched Finacle 11E, the enterprise edition of Finacle™ universal banking solution. Finacle 11E is designed to simplify banking transformation with enterprise-class components.
  • We are building momentum in the market with our Cloud and Big Data offerings. Last quarter, we won over 15 new projects with clients in these segments. We are a leader in Cloud services with more than 4,500 Cloud experts, 200 engagements and 35 partners. This was validated by IDC's recognition of Infosys as a Major Player in its IDC MarketScape for Cloud Professional Services.
  • We are engaging with clients to create innovative solutions around the mobile device. This quarter we began over 25 different engagements in various areas such as Mobile strategy consulting, Mobile field service, customer engagement, and enterprise productivity, among others.
  • In the U.S., we are partnering with leading healthcare and public sector organizations through Infosys Public Services Inc., to help them deliver patient-centric care and mission outcomes. A Blue Cross Blue Shield Plan awarded us a three year managed services contract to support its IT operations and provide application maintenance and testing services. This will enable the client to optimize efficiency and cost while delivering enhanced care and services to members. We have also been selected by a multi-state Medicaid/Medicare Plan to implement a solution that meets shared member liability management requirements, as mandated for participation in health exchanges under the U.S. Affordable Care Act.
  • During the second quarter, Infosys applied for 21 unique patent applications in India and the U.S. With this, we have 536 patent applications undergoing various stages of patent prosecution in India, the U.S. and other jurisdictions.
