2020 had enterprises scrambling to adapt to a whole new world. As work went remote, communication became purely digital, and operations moved online, companies realised that doubling down on their digital strategies was the only way to stay resilient and navigate their next.
At Infosys APAC Confluence 2021, Salil Parekh, CEO & MD, Infosys, elaborated how enterprise digital journeys have changed in light of the pandemic, how speed and cost efficiency have become top priorities for clients, and what Infosys is doing to help organisations stay ahead of the curve.
Enterprises have accelerated their cloud transformation journeys in light of the pandemic. Companies with early digital transformation investments have doubled down to increase market share, while those embarking on it now want to move with extreme speed.
The faster shift to digital isn’t a strategy but a necessity. And it’s happening everywhere, all at once. As enterprises fast-track their digital journeys and strive to get to market faster, the critical drivers for transformation are cost efficiency, AI and automation.
A project is only as efficient as the tools used to execute it. For enterprises, that means finding cloud transformation services that bring together the infrastructure and platforms that enable agility, alongside expertise that minimises risks and delivers results at scale, with speed.
For global clients that operate across geographies, access to a localised crew of experts and partners can unlock whole new efficiencies. A local services ecosystem not only offers gains in speed, but can leverage its understanding of the market to offer more tailored services.
All large enterprises have seen massive acceleration in their digital cloud transformation journeys. Those with early investments have benefited.
