Infosys has a broad application and infrastructure management footprint of clients. This provides a foundation for delivering cloud services, given Infosys' existing relationships and knowledge of the client application landscape. As clients' objectives for migrating workloads to the cloud evolve, Infosys is looking to evolve in parallel. Building the Enterprise Cloud Ecosystem organization positions it to pull in the necessary capabilities to address broad client digital transformation objectives. It has a dedicated go-to-market organization and a core group of cloudstrategists and architects supported by capabilities such as IoT, analytics, and application specialists. The go-to-market and cloud strategist teams are still a small focused group and given its leadership in shaping these engagements, it will be important for Infosys to expand its onshore consulting, strategy, and architecture capabilities to meet its growth objectives.
To support these specialist teams, it is also important for Infosys to continue to grow its automated toolset. While this has been a major focus throughout Infosys, for significant components of advisory and migration services, the use of third-party tools from AWS and Azure limits its differentiation from its competition. Its investment in CloudEndure and other third-party partnerships with tool providers lay the foundation for a more comprehensive differentiated automation capability, to be further expanded and matured.
Two areas where Infosys does have differentiated capability are its focus on mainframe modernization and its industry-targeted solutions. As clients continue to expand how they capture value from a cloud adoption, these complementary offerings provide clients with an avenue to realizing their business case objectives.
