Highlights

  • The cloud in many ways, is very foundational to digital journeys because it allows organizations to cope up with dynamic changes in the market
  • Our belief is grassroots innovation is not just with a partner like Infosys, but also the enterprise, which is going through this journey
  • 14,000+ assets of learning, and tools, and 200+ industry templates would help organizations securely navigate through the cloud journey

When it comes to disrupting the status-quo in a rapidly changing business world, technology has always been on the forefront. And this has never been truer, than it is today. Things that were considered good to have for enterprises less than a year back, have today turned into must-haves, as enterprises come to terms with a post-pandemic world. Digital experiences and ecosystems are no longer an optional element.

In this entire journey of navigating towards a digital ecosystem, cloud has always been vital, says Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys.

“The cloud in many ways, is very foundational to digital journeys because it allows organizations to become agile and variabilize their costs, and variabilize their operating models so that they could cope up with dynamic changes in the market,” says Kumar.

This is especially true in the current environment as organizations across the world are navigating a health crisis, and cloud helps in making organizations more resilient, right from achieving agility, to innovating at scale.

And that’s where Infosys Cobalt comes in.

To cater to organizations at this critical juncture, innovation is key, and at Infosys, we’re keen to draw on the community within Infosys. Kumar talks about people who work with organizations every day to help them through transformation, and accelerate the pace at which they can embrace the cloud.

The curated sets of 14,000+ assets of learning, knowledge-based accelerators and tools, and more than 200 industry templates, are put together by a central engineering team that would help organizations navigate through the cloud journey while ensuring security.

“(This) will allow enterprises to accelerate these journeys to move into the cloud from on-prem(ise), to move with the cloud to transform the workloads, as well as to change the operating models of large enterprises,” notes Kumar, adding that large enterprises today are powering their products and services by embracing cloud.

We realize the when it comes to cloud, perhaps nothing matters more than a community of innovators that enterprises can tap into – startup innovators, new-age cloud innovators etc. And with Infosys Cobalt, we bring the power of the cloud community to our clients.

“Our belief is grassroots innovation is not just with a partner like Infosys, but also the enterprise, which is going through this journey. So progressively, we will build this community to our clients,” says Kumar.

Furthermore, the next step would be to expose this community to the world of cloud developers, “So that a gig worker who is working on cloud development contributes to this community as well as draws from this community,” says Kumar.

As more and more organizations seek to transform themselves with cloud, Infosys Cobalt can draw heavily from the synergies of experience, innovation, and learning.
