Infosys continues to make a big splash following its 2018 entry into Indiana. The current issue of BizVoice® magazine takes a look at how many have been hired, what they are doing, the plans for the developing campus on the west side of Indianapolis and more.
In addition to all that, did you know?
The company has a philanthropic arm, Infosys Foundation USA, with the mission of “inspiring children, young adults and educators to become creators of technology.” One of its programs is the Pathfinders Institute, in which teachers from largely underserved schools (400-plus in 2019) are brought to Indiana University for an intense weeklong summer session learning coding and robotics. The goal is for those teachers to be able to bring that knowledge back to their classrooms.
The Infosys Innovation Fund invests in entrepreneurial ventures around the world, focused on solutions that are relevant to the strategic priorities of its clients. Rick Cardwell, vice president and head of the Indiana operations, says business acquisition is part of that equation – “if it is something the market needs and we can scale it based on our head count size.”
Founded in 1981, the India-based operation earned more than $12.6 billion in its most recent fiscal year. Approximately 23,000 of its 224,000 employees are based in the United States. While it serves clients in 46 countries, the total client count of 1,250 is relatively small for an organization of that size. Two examples from the client list: Walmart and Johnson Controls.
