On 20 august — which happened to be Infosys founder N.R. Narayana Murthy’s 69th birthday — the company CEO and managing director Vishal Sikka announced a new set of services, ‘Aikido’. Named after Japanese martial art that is about defeating the enemy using his own force, and enlightening one’s real enemy — the self.
“Infosys has made the right moves. But can the talk about design thinking, artificial intelligence, and platforms increase the bottom line. This will be clear in two years,” says Sanchit Vir Gogia, CEO of Greyhound Research. He adds that at least for now, Sikka has stemmed the flow of resignations in the company.
