"Posterity will not excuse you if you did not dream big. You owe it to your customers, your colleagues, your investors, and the society. Every major civilization, every great advance in science and technology, and every great company is built on a big dream."

N. R. Narayana Murthy,
Chairman and Chief Mentor

30 years of Infosys

Turning thirty is a good time to reminisce. And reflect. And look ahead.

Thirty is one of those rare junctures when you have both youth and experience on your side. Thus, as Infosys completes thirty, we talk about the pleasures and pains of starting small; the genesis of a value-based organization culture; personal goals turning into company milestones; sharing wealth and caring for society; learning and educating; building infrastructure for one and all; agreeing to disclose and refusing to compromise on quality; and above all, believing in a vision and leading by example to see it become reality.

Thirty is also the time to break new ground.

Goodbye, folks. March on with values...

Sitting on a high stool at the NASDAQ headquarters in New York in front of the scorching lights of TV cameras, I borrowed the words of Neil Armstrong to tell the world how important it was for an Indian company to be listed on the NASDAQ.

The finance journey

We are proud to have been part of this dream journey. Using exemplary corporate governance guidelines, we have built a financially sound company.


The quality journey

Through quality, we have succeeded as an organization to set ourselves on the path of the continued pursuit of excellence with a constancy of purpose. In the process, we have earned the sustained trust of our stakeholders


The education and research journey

From a humble learning organization to a pioneer in the field of industry-academia partnerships, it has been a journey where we have learnt as much as we have taught.


Building world-class infrastructure – realization of a dream

What was just a dream in 1992 has become an unbelievable journey with 28 million sq. ft. of built-up space and 1,23,000 seats as of March 31, 2011. We are currently building another 8.3 million sq. ft. with 40,000 seats.


Growing tall with Infosys

I have grown with the organization, celebrated success, learnt from the losses and had the good fortune of working with the brightest minds in the industry. It did not take long for me to realize that this is a special company.


Human capital management

I personally believe that the most significant intervention for emotionally engaging Infoscions was the creation of Employees Stock Offer Plan (ESOP), long before any regulatory guidelines were available.
