Infosys has been ailing since past few years. Tata Consultancy Services and Cognizant have been giving them tough competition and are slowly increasing their market share. Vishal, the first non-board member CEO of the multinational company, has been given a responsibility to bring back the company to its original health and to grow it further.

Vishal has been quite successful in his last area of work at SAP and is one of the most trusted names when it comes to the IT and software market. However, the task in front of him is huge. He would need all the help that he can get. Bringing old and familiar faces to the Infosys table might ease his chore a bit.

Update
“In the last quarter, over 3,000 professionals joined us from several global corporations. These people include a few from SAP as well. It is relatively common in our industry that when a senior leader leaves a company, there would be a few people who may decide to follow. SAP is a valued and distinguished partner for Infosys, and we have plans to further strengthen our relationship in many exciting areas.” said ​Srikantan Moorthy, Global Head HR, Infosys.
