Business 2.0: 'Infosys is No. 8 among fastest growing tech companies'
Business 2.0, the leading business trends and technologies magazine, has ranked Infosys at No. 8 on its prestigious B2 100 list of the world's fastest growing technology companies. The ranking places Infosys ahead of Cognizant Technologies, eBay and Apple Computer. In 2004, Infosys was ranked at 59.
Infosys earned the position, the magazine said, for its unique strategy of beating global incumbents on their own turf. Even as consulting giants Accenture and IBM began invading Infosys' business by hiring in India, Infosys fought back by 'turbocharging its sales by opening a consultancy of its own in the United States and staffing it with homegrown MBAs,' the magazine said.
The mention comes close on the heels of Infosys' rise to No. 9 on the Wired 40 list, three places up from last year's ranking.
