We started the year just two quarters into a strategy to completely reimagine the notion of services and to transform Infosys. Over the course of this year, we saw this strategy, of bringing automation and innovation to our clients, on a foundation of learning and education, start to show results in the organic growth of our client relationships, in our win rates in large deals, and in the types of projects we are seeing in strategic areas where we never participated before. I am proud of what our teams have achieved this quarter and in the year,"

Dr. Vishal Sikka, CEO

The world of our future looks entirely different – it is a world that is being fundamentally reshaped by digital technologies, and it is our endeavor to create great value for every business through solutions built on our AI technology and open, cloud platforms, to have Infoscions amplified by intelligent technology, to bring purposeful innovation to life, and in that sense, we are still very much at the beginning of this journey.”

“Employee attrition reduced further in Q4, and is reflective of increased engagement with our people all through the year, and our steps to make Infosys an exciting place for the world’s best talent. We continue to reimagine our internal processes to increase organizational agility.”

said U B Pravin Rao, COO

. “The momentum of large deal wins continued this quarter and bookings were strong.”
