Digital Transformation: A Positive
Infosys has been making diligent attempts to strengthen its digital transformation capacities for cementing its position on the highly competitive landscape.
The company is assisting its clients in more than 45 countries to create and execute strategies for their respective digital conversion processes. CEO Salil Parikh has also been focusing more on investments in digital technologies ever since he assumed office.
The company recently inaugurated a new digital innovation center in Dusseldorf, Germany. The center lets Infosys work more closely with its clients in the region to support their digital transformation journey while focusing on next-generation business suites, such as SAP HANA, cloud-based services, IoT, 5G, AI and machine learning.
A large number of deal wins and rapidly-growing digital services are constant key catalysts for the company. Strong demand for its services in the cloud, IoT, cyber security, data and analytics is also a major driver. Higher investments by clients in digital transformation, AI and automation are an upside as well.
Notably, Infosys reported strong third-quarter fiscal 2020 results, driven by digital business, which accounted for 40% of its total revenue base. Digital revenues crossed $5 billion annual run rate.
IDC expects spending on technologies and services that enables digital transformation of business practices, products and organizations to reach $2.3 trillion in 2023, reflecting a CAGR of 17.1% over the 2019-2023 forecast period.
We therefore believe that the company’s initiatives to this end will favor its top line going forward.
