Customer Satisfaction and Industry Solutions Contributed to Placement
Bangalore, India, March 27, 2008
Infosys Technologies Limited (NASDAQ: INFY), a world leader in consulting and information technology services, has been recognized as a leader among Oracle implementation providers in a March 2008 report issued by independent analyst firm Forrester Research.
The Forrester report, entitled The Forrester Wave: Oracle Implementation Providers, Q1 2008, states that Infosys' placement within the leader category was "fueled by strong business process consulting capabilities, technical skills, large offshore practices, and strong technical IP including pre-built, industry-specific solutions."
"Infosys is committed to working closely with our clients as their trusted strategic partner to help them strengthen their business and gain efficiencies throughout their organization," said Chandra Shekar Kakal, senior vice president and global head for enterprise solutions, Infosys Technologies. "Our placement in the Forrester report reflects our ability to deliver valuable strategic insight coupled with strong implementation capabilities and industry solutions for our global clients running packaged applications from Oracle."
In addition to citing Infosys as a leader in Oracle implementation services, the report recognizes the company's impressive growth rate of "50% year-over-year for the past four years" noting that "the provider has expertise across a range of industries including banking and financial services, hi-tech and discrete manufacturing, and retail."
The report also mentions customer satisfaction depicted by "strong client reference scores, particularly around value for the money and project management." Infosys notably received the highest customer reference scores (in a three-way tie) for value for the money and client reference scores on knowledge of business process related to the scope of the Oracle implementation were tied for best in the evaluation.
This report is a quarterly assessment of 13 global Oracle implementation providers and tracks across 107 criteria to determine competitive standing. Forrester Research factors in scores rated against overall strategy, market presence and current offerings.
