Services company Infosys Technologies’ Australian operation has launched a consulting and systems integration practice across Australia and New Zealand. According to the company the practice adds a significant string to its bow as a consulting partner.
CEO Jackie Korhonen says the consulting and systems integration practice will allow it to engage with customers earlier in the project lifecycle, by providing the technology and process strategy that supports transformational business goals.
“We are known for our delivery excellence and this provides a solid platform from which to build our consulting arm,” claims Korhonen.
Infosys Technologies has approximately 30 people in New Zealand working as consultants but it does not have an office here yet.
The company has appointed ex-pat New Zealander Robert Liong to lead the practice as managing partner, based in Sydney. He previously worked with BearingPoint, KPMG and Andersen Consulting.
The company also plans to grow the consulting team to include senior business architects, change management specialists and programme directors.
