It's all about timing

This is an exciting time to be at Infosys, especially here in the US.

There are about 20,000 of us, spread across 47 states. This includes our CEO Vishal Sikka, based in Silicon Valley and ranked in the top 35 highest rated CEOs in the United States by the people who know best – our employees.

We don’t think we have all the answers at Infosys, and that is why we partner with some very smart collaborators to address the latest challenges in digital, cloud, artificial intelligence and other enterprise technologies.  Whether you speak SAP or Oracle, Microsoft or IBM, Adobe or VMWare – we speak your language, too.

But we also know that some of the most interesting solutions to tomorrow’s problems will come from companies that aren’t so well-known.

That is why we created the Infosys Innovation Fund, setting aside $500 million this year alone to identify and nurture startups around the world that can bring breakthrough ideas to our clients.  We offer the market development and client validation they need to scale, our clients get out of the box solutions to their problems.

This also gives YOU the opportunity to team with some of the most exciting new companies you’ve never heard of – all while enjoying the stability, investments and market reach of working at a multibillion global company listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

The Innovation Department at Infosys… is Infosys.

Does your current employer have an innovation hub?  Perhaps an R&D lab, some centers of excellence or a skunkworks team?  Yup, been there, done that, got the t-shirt. 

Hand on heart, we really believe that innovation is the job of every single person at Infosys (also known as “Infoscions”).  After all, doing things the way they’ve always been done isn’t likely to change the world, impress your client or make it fun to come to work every day.

Here are just a few ways you’ll get an opportunity to stretch your innovation muscles at Infosys.

Design Thinking at Infosys

You’ve been solving problems since you were tiny.

Humans are intuitively wired to identify patterns, form ideas, and create solutions. As children, we're curious to explore how things work and make sense of the world in our own unique way. However, years of training in more rigid problem solving methodologies force us to unlearn other, more organic methods.

Design thinking unboxes us, marrying conventional problem solving methods, intuition, and above all, empathy with the user who will ultimately benefit from the solution. That user might be your client, your client’s customer or a colleague down the hall.  The design thinking process challenges you to first define the right problem and only then look for solutions.

Using this approach, Infoscions – from technology architects and business consultants to HR managers and sales professionals – learn to think like designers.  We use rationality and creativity in equal measure to design software, processes and strategies.  We rapidly try, test and improve upon new ideas until they serve a clear purpose.  

With more than 60,000 Infoscions trained in design thinking in the last year alone, we believe this represents an investment and scale that will disrupt our industry.

Zero Distance

Zero Distance is the Infosys approach to grassroots innovation. 

Getting to zero distance – to the user of a solution, to the underlying code and ultimately to value --  requires us not to simply deliver a requested outcome, but to question, think, and innovate proactively.

To do this, you’ll receive mentoring, helping you identify possible opportunities to innovate while on the job. We don’t believe innovation can be templatized, but we do find that a common framework and vocabulary is helpful.

For example, in each project we take on, Infoscions are challenged in five ways:

  • Look around and learn from others
  • Do something over and beyond the scope of a project
  • Do something better than before
  • Articulate the value of innovations in a way that matters to users
  • Share that knowledge with others

Infosys Foundation USA - Employees Volunteer To Help Bridge The Digital Divide In America 

Vishwa Ranjan

Recently I was invited to speak at Hispanic Heritage Foundation’s LOFT coder event which was held at Stanford University. I spoke on augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) development. Since this was a young audience, I took the time to explain the history, the hype, the promise, and the applications of AR and VR, and talked about the pros and cons of all the newly-introduced devices hitting the market. My intention was to educate the students about the big AR and VR opportunities coming their way, especially in coding. My Infosys colleague Ravi Tripathi showed the audience (via a live demo) what it takes to create a VR application from start to finish.

For me it was a great experience to share my expertise with the young Latino community. Some people approached me after the talk and told me they were now inspired to learn more about VR. In particular, a young student from San Jose State University (SJSU) said he was really fascinated by what he saw and heard, and he now knows VR is what he wants to do in his career. This gave me an overall good feeling from helping out, even if it meant I only helped this one student tighten his focus upon pursuing a career in VR. Volunteering is rewarding and I wish I had more time to do it. As an employee, I was pleased to learn that our company gives back to the community through the efforts of Infosys Foundation USA --- bridging the digital divide in America by supporting high quality computer science education and coding skills with a particular focus on underrepresented communities – in this case the Latino community.

About Vishwa: With more than 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry, Vishwa leads a team at Infosys in Palo Alto focused on virtual and augmented reality applications for enterprise customers. Most recently, his team showcased VR demos at the   World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Vishwa has also held senior roles at Industrial Light and Magic, Electronic Arts, and DreamWorks Animation, and holds a doctorate degree in computer graphics.

Infosys Foundation USA is focused on bridging the digital divide in America by supporting high quality computer science education and coding skills with a particular focus on under-represented communities. It aims to give children and young adults the skills they need to become creators, not just consumers, of technology. Learn more about Infosys Foundation USA and other programs that give back to the communities where we work and live.

Thinking in Three Dimensions - get inspired by Holly's journey as a woman in tech.

Vice President and Partner, Organizatonal Transformation, Infosys Consulting


Thinking in Three Dimensions

As a Partner in Infosys Consulting, I've spent the past 11 years helping Infosys clients master the human challenges that accompany technology change.  So I'm not a technology inventor or implementer  - instead, I'm a change management professional who deals with the effects of technology on human systems. 

Looking at human systems is a three-dimensional problem - you have to be able to see far-reaching effects of apparently-simple actions and decisions.  The old "If a butterfly flutters its wings, will it create a hurricane half way around the world?" You have to be able to understand what drives human behavior, and know how to motivate people to evolve in a direction you want them to evolve.

Many change management professionals are organizational psychologists; I'm an armchair psychologist.  But my academic and early work background trained me well in how to study, model and understand three-dimensional systems. My degrees, and the first decade of my professional work experience, were in petroleum geology, where the challenge was to develop a three-dimensional picture of the earth's subsurface and predict where pools of oil and gas would accumulate based upon the relationships between structure, reservoir, source rock, and seal.  This background taught me to think and see three-dimensionally.  It also gave me the physical scientist's love of data and experimentation, and gave me a structured way of looking at problems, formulating hypotheses and testing them - which is not so very different from what we call "prototyping" today!

At some point - as I half-jokingly, half-seriously quip to friends - I just decided that people were more interesting than rocks.  So I began an on-the-job practical study of human systems and organizational dynamics that utilized many of the thought processes I'd developed as an earth scientist - and that ultimately brought me to where I am today.

My interest is in large-scale human systems - like those found in the Fortune 500 companies that dominate Infosys' client list.  When I look at what drives change into organizations, nothing is more influential, nor more pervasive, than technology.   Infosys lives on the cutting edge of technological change - so I can think of no better place to ply my trade.  As a primary innovator and developer of new technology, and as an implementer of game-changing partner technologies, Infosys is helping to push the frontiers of the digital economy - meaning that change management practitioners at Infosys get to be on the front lines of seeing how those technologies change jobs, organizations, and even corporate cultures.   Working here is a chance to get "ahead of the curve" in my own profession.  

I'm proud of how Infosys has incorporated the human elements of technology change into its offerings - that it's had the breadth of vision to understand that unless people fully immerse themselves in new technologies, those technologies will fall far short of their intended impact.  What I hope for Infosys in the future is an even deeper partnership between the resources who think about machines and code, and the resources who think about how humans will take up new innovations and use them to amplify individual and corporate performance.   

What woman in technology inspires me? Leilah Janah, founder and CEO of non-profit Sama, whom I heard speak at a mindfulness conference in San Francisco this winter. (Janah and Sama were also featured in FastCompany's "50 Most Innovative Companies" this year - March, 2016 issue). Harvard-educated, former management consultant Janah is a woman on a mission. Her organization goes into impoverished communities around the world and trains people to do digital work, to lift themselves out of poverty. Using a radical new funding model, she is simultaneously changing the face of social entrepreneurship by creating a fully self-funding non-profit - and changing the face of the communities where she creates digital-age jobs for the poor. "Every human being you help is an infinite victory," she notes.
