    SWOT analysis of Infosys:


    Since the company is based in India its competitive advantage is enhanced. The Indian

    economy, despite weak economic indicators such as relatively high rates of inflation, has

    low labor costs. The workforce has relatively high skills levels in Information Technology.

    Couple these two elements together and you have an operational basis that offers low-

    cost based, highly skilled competitive advantage. Trained Indian personnel often speak

    very good English and are sensitive to Western culture, underpinned by India's colonial


    Infosys is in a strong financial position. The business turned over more than $4 billion in

    2008. This means that it has the capital to expand, and also the basis to leverage

    potential investors.

    The company has bases in 44 global development centers, most of which are located in

    India, although the company has offices in many developed and developing nations. This

    means not only that Infosys is becoming a global brand but also that it has the capability

    to support the global operations of multinational clients.


    Infosys on occasion struggles in the US markets, and has particular problems in securing

    United States Federal Government contracts in North America. Since these contracts are

    highly profitable and tend to run for long periods of time, Infosys is missing out onlucrative business. Added to this is the fact that its competitors do well in terms of

    securing the same Federal business (and one should also take into account that many of

    its competitors are domiciled in the US and there could be political pressure on the US

    Government to award contracts to domestic organizations).

    Despite being a huge IT company in relation to its Indian competitors, Infosys is much

    smaller than its global competitors. As discussed above, Infosys generated $4 billion in

    2008, which is relatively low in comparison with large global competitors such as

    Hewlett-Packard ($91 billion), IBM ($91 billion), EDS ($21 billion) and Accenture ($18

    billion). It is sometimes argued that Infosys is weaker when it comes to high-end management

    consultancy, since it tends to work at the level of operational value creation.

    Competitors such as IBM and Accenture tend to dominate this space.

    At a time of recession in the global economy, it may appear that some companies will

    reduce take up of services that Infosys offers. However, in tough times clients tend to

    focus upon cost reduction and outsourcing - with are strategies that Infosys offers. So

    hard times could be profitable for Infosys.

    There is a new and emerging market in China as the country undergoes a huge industrial


    The strategic alliance between Infosys and Schlumberger gives the IT company access to

    lucrative business in the gas and oil industries.

    There has been a trend over recent years for European and North American companies

    to base some or all of their operation in India. This is called an offshore service.

    Essentially there is a seamless link between domestic operations and services hosted in

    India. Examples include telecommunications companies such as British Telecom and

    banks such as HSBC that have customer service and support centers based in India.

    Think about the times that you have made calls to a support line to find that the adviser

    is in Mumbai or Bangalore and not in your home market.


    India is not the only country that is undergoing rapid industrial expansion. Competitors

    may come from countries such as China or Korea where there are large pools of low-

    cost labor, and developing educational infrastructures such as universities and

    technology colleges. Customers may switch to other offshore service companies in other countries such as

    China or Korea.

    Other global players have realized that India has the benefit of low-cost, highly-skilled

    labor that often speaks English and is culturally sensitive to Western practices. As with

    all global IT players, Infosys has to compete for skilled labor and this may have the effect

    of driving up wage levels, and making it more difficult to recruit and retain staff.
