Innovation from Infosys

Posted by tggokul on October 3, 2007

Somehow the general feeling around the world is that the Indian software giants like Infosys, Wipro, HCL are cheap labour camps and not a whole lot of innovation can be seen in these companies.

Infosys has broken that image by winning the the Telephony Mashup Challenge which was sponsored by Sylantro Systems and The Thomas Howe Company. Their CallPal application seems quite interesting and no wonder seemed to be the toast at the Global Summit in Las Vegas. For people who long for innovation from Indian companies, this is quite a refreshing piece of news and hopefully we can see more of this in the days to come.

    It is interesting to see this note….especially refuting the notion of “cheap labour camps” I guess action speaks louder than words.

    It’s good to see this creativity.

    Though selling this creative idea, increasing adoption rates and making money – is easier said than done.

    A GPLed Wide Area Network Simulator. I am not sure if it will win awards but it does serve to illustrate the point. It was an internal tool that they made public.
