S. D. Shibulal, Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Infosys, plans to take the audience at Oracle OpenWorld 2012 for a journey through the history of, what he calls, "radical progress."
The great advances of the last century often came about because people were able to look at a field of research or an industry from a new perspective. Today, says Shibulal, the most successful businesses use that same spirit of innovation to drive sustained growth. Infosys is helping companies open the doors for new business models, products, and processes. Those innovations have vast potential to improve both corporations and society.
