According to Kris, the Global Delivery Model can be adapted to deliver new services, solutions and consulting. "Global Delivery Model offers the opportunity to increase penetration with existing clients in new markets and geographies and expand the service footprint."
Kris spoke about Infosys' plans to impact growth. He said that Infosys is leveraging its service portfolio to harness opportunities in remote infrastructure management, business process outsourcing and independent validation and testing.
