  2. 2. Abhishek. HOW IS INFOSYS PLACED IN GLOBAL IT SERVICES INDUSTRY IN 2006? 2
  3. 3. IT Services are driven to low cost • High buyer power – Commoditized technology, many providers, dependency on large firms • Low supplier power – Many resources available at low cost • Moderate threat of new entrants – Difficult to copy brand value • Low threat of substitute – No substitute • High competitive rivalry – Fragmented market, many players, not much differentiation, moderate switching cost 3
  4. 4. Business Consulting has higher power • Medium buyer power – Established providers, dependency upon client brands • Medium supplier power – Higher skills required which are low in supply • Low threat of new entrants – Difficult to copy brand and culture, High entry barrier • Low substitute – No substitute • High competitive rivalry – Many players but high switching cost 4

Where is Infosys Technologies? • Biggest global players : IBM and Accenture • Value chain BIZ APP DEV INFRA IMPLEMEN BPO CONSULTING & MAINT MGT Onshore Offshore Expertise – Experience – Procedure IBM / Accenture Infy / TCS • US companies are moving down the value chain • Indian companies are trying to move up 5

  10. 10. Manish WHY INTO CONSULTING? WHY ON ITS OWN? 10
  11. 11. Why Infy into Consulting? • Repeat business could provide higher revenue – Fill gaps in offerings • Existing relationships became complex – Address new opportunities of clients – Richer client relations: One-point solution • Global service market in 2004: 550 $B – Huge opportunity as TCS+Wipro+Infy had .8% only 11
  12. 12. Why on its Own? • To develop its own brand – Subcontract could dilute it – Joint ventures have limited life & Validity • Overlap of activities & Conflict of interests • To leverage the Global Delivery Model (GDM) – Causing further disruption to consulting – New model can not be setup through acquisition • Transform Culture & Build Brand as global transformation enabler 12

  14. 14. INTERFACES BETWEEN ITL & ICI WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES? 14
  15. 15. Objective: Seamless Integration • Mirror ITL (industry-wise organized) • Coordination driven by metrics – Each BU has specific goal for ICI – ICI has specific revenue goals for ITL • Collaboration driven by “One Infy” culture – Incentives & rewards, cross-business training, cultural integration, Forum – One company to customer • Evolution - Constant redefinition and learning • Adapt ITL sales process to include ICI services • Fork in the road: Ownership & Accountability – Job allocation: Transformation (ICI) & Technology (ICT) • Performance management of ICI by Sr. Executives of ICT 15
  16. 16. Challenges: Seamless Integration • Business Integration  Where to draw line between business and technology consulting?  How to utilize common sales force? • Culture Integration  ICI formed by a team of outsiders  Different people: Foreigners in ICI vs Indians in ICT • Single view to customer  Mechanism for revenue sharing on same account  Who would be the key contact - ITL or ICI? • 1-1-3 model and its efficiency  Can it be leveraged everywhere? 16
  17. 17. Rajul INFY AND ITS COMPETITORS 17
  18. 18. Infy’s Competitors Are Strong • Infy’s strategy includes – Integration of management & IT consulting – Increase in cross-selling – Cost-effectiveness • Should IBM and Accenture feel threatened by ICI? – Already have integrated services – ICI is small player in consulting • Is it a big concern as of now? – It takes long to establish in business consulting • Should they also go for low cost model? 18
  19. 19. GDM can not be extended • Business consulting is expertise oriented – GDM works well for procedural and experiential activities. IT has been commoditized. • Business consulting is people oriented – Face to face interaction has more importance – 3-3-1 model may be needed, not 1-1-3! • Business consulting is thinking oriented – Gaps of silence needed. 24 hours continuity may not add any significant value. 19
  20. 20. How Can Competitors Respond? • Increase the value proposition higher – Decrease buyer power and increase competition • Integrate management and IT consulting further – Remove complexities in integration – Same impact as above • Need not try to replicate 1-1-3 model everywhere – GDM good for low end IT Consulting – May not work for critical high end business consulting 20
  21. 21. What Should ICI do post 2006? • Expand global reach (revenue, market share) – Financial support is available • Deliver higher Value and Communicate – Look beyond GDM • Get the best talent • Integrate ICI and ITL and have better interface • Build the brand – Not many know ICI in business consulting – Infosys is still known as an IT services company 21
