Key Findings & Highlights Infosys primarily provides software testing services through its Independent Validation Services (IVS) unit. IVS is a large practice, with 17k career testers at the end of 2015 and 19k at the end of FY 2016. Major clients include tier one organizations: Telstra, Kraft Foods, Honda, and NAB. IVS has a track record in gaining very large standalone testing contracts, with TCVs of ~$100m and a regular flow of contracts in the $10m-$50m range. Infosys has changed the structure of IVS, which until 2010 was an independent practice and horizontal service line. In 2010, it became a virtual line with delivery embedded in the ADM verticals, to favor verticalization of offerings. In April 2015, Infosys decided to restore IVS to its previous horizontal status. With this new status, IVS gained capabilities in data testing, performance engineering, and PES.
