With new hires from SAP, Infosys strengthens senior team - Economic Times

BANGALORE:Vishal Sikka continues to attract talent from SAP as he builds a team of leaders to help transform Infosys into what the first non-founder chief executive officer calls a "next generation IT services company."

Ganapathy Subramanian, former vice-president at SAP Labs India, and Sudipto Shankar Dasgupta, former chief development architect at SAP Labs India, have joined Infosys as vice presidents. While their roles have not been revealed, ETlearns they will continue to be based out of Bangalore.


Since Sikka, a former member of the Executive Board of SAP AG, took over at the country's second-largest software company on August 1, seven SAP executives, including five SVPs, have switched loyalties to join Infosys. They include Ritika Suri, Abdul Razack, Sanjay Rajagopalan, Navin Budhiraja and Michael Reh, all of whom report directly to Sikka.


The SVPs will be stationed in Palo Alto, save Reh who will be based out of Germany.


A company spokeswoman declined to comment on the matter, saying: "As per company policy, we do not comment on the appointments or exits of executives other than members of the board or executive officers."


Infosys had said that in the second quarter, over 3,000 professionals joined the company from several global corporations, including "a few from SAP. It is relatively common in our industry that when a senior leader leaves a company, there would be a few people who may decide to follow."


Srikantan Moorthy, executive vice president and head of human resources, told ET earlier this month that Infosys will "continue to build on its relationship with SAP in different forms, whether it is on the human resources side in terms of their processes or the products they have built."


Some experts say that SAP executives joining Infosys is a vote of confidence in Sikka's leadership skills. "People are attracted to leaders and compelling ideas,"said Dave Gardner, founder of Gardner & Associates Consulting, a California-based advisory firm. "If the work is exciting, there will be little difficulty finding people who want to help Infosys evolve. Vishal is building a great team. I don't see any problems attracting and retaining top talent."


When Sikka announced Infosys' second-quarter results on October 10, the company maintained its revenue growth forecast of 7-9% for the year and gave investors a generous interim dividend and share bonus. Nasscom expects the industry to grow by 13-15%, meaning Infosys and Sikka have a lot of ground to cover.
