Infosys sees acquisitions, startup push

 Infosys has made few strategic investments and acquisitions during the quarter.
The company acquired Noah Consulting for $30 million. Noah contributed $3 million to the revenues of the companies.

The company has also invested in WHOOP, an early stage company that offers a performance optimisation system for elite professional sports teams, and invested in CloudEndure, a startup that provides Cloud Migration and Cloud-based Disaster Recovery (DR) software.

“We are actively participating in startup investments.  The trend of startups in India is very encouraging. It is a very positive sign, as it reflects an innovative youth culture within the country. They say in Silicon Valley that startups fail, but not the entrepreneurs,” said Sikka. On the Grassley-Durbin bill, Sikka stated that they are focusing on the virtual global delivery mode. “If you see, only one-fourth of our employees are based in the US. We are trying to move away from visa dependence as much as possible, and focusing on local hiring,” added Sikka.
