Tennis is incredibly data-rich, and Infosys has both technological expertise and passion for tennis to bring it to life in an intuitive way. We are excited for fans to interact with these new features and look forward to future digital innovation together with Infosys."

Infosys has been supporting ATP Tour’s development of key digital assets and infrastructure since 2015. The two companies renewed and extended their partnership in 2020, per which Infosys will continue as the Digital Innovation Partner and Global Technology Services Partner of the ATP Tour, through 2023.

Infosys has been strengthening its core competencies by pursuing collaborations and acquisitions. Its alliance strategy is targeted at teaming up with leading technology providers, which enables it to capitalize on the emerging technologies in a mutually-advantageous and cost-competitive manner.

Lately, the company has been gaining from large deal wins and fast-growing digital services. It reported revenues of $3.78 billion in first-quarter fiscal 2022, up 21.2% primarily on account of large deal wins.

During the fiscal first quarter, the next-generation digital and consulting service major signed multiple large deals worth $2.6 billion. Digital revenues accounted for more than 50% of its total revenues.

With the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating the digital transformation process, the latest Mordor Intelligence report states that the global digital transformation market is expected to reach $2.74 trillion by 2026, witnessing a CAGR of 18.5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

Infosys has been reinforcing its digital-transformation capabilities for expanding and solidifying the firm’s position in the highly competitive environment. The company is enabling its clients across more than 45 countries to create and execute strategies for their digital transformation.

However, Infosys is suffering from the increasing anti-outsourcing sentiments in certain countries. Higher subcontractor costs and the company’s compensation revision with a higher variable pay and incentives are weighing on margins. Further, currency volatility between the India rupee and the U.S. dollar is a major concern.
