THE BIG IN­TER­VIEW

“WE WISH WE HAD GROWN FASTER IN THE FIRST TEN YEARS”

Q. How should In­fosys or the soft­ware in­dus­try rein­vent it­self? Murthy We have to first look at the mar­ket. If we are not suc­cess­ful with ideas the rest of it does not mat­ter. There will be ubiq­ui­tous com­put­ing, nan­otech­nol­ogy, greater ap­pli­ca­tion of In­ter­net in per­sonal life. There is con­sid­er­able op­por­tu­nity for a com­pany like In­fosys. On the sup­ply side there will be dif­fer­ent con­straints, just like we had in the 1980s. We’ll suc­ceed de­spite them. I NDIA TO­DAY, J ULY 1 7, 2006

BACK TO THE FU­TURE

Tech­nop­o­lis As I stand within In­fosys City’s W- shaped food court — part of the nerve- cen­tre of In­dia’s best- known IT firm— Se­nior Vice- Pres­i­dent Pha­neesh Murthy proudly tells me that two pieces of the W are the largest sin­gle- shell struc­tures in In­dia. Then, he adds, “It took 400 qua­dratic equa­tions to de­cide on the shape of the hy­per­bolic pa­rab­o­loid that is each shell.” I NDIA TO­DAY J AN­UARY 1 , 2001

SOFT­WARE

Cyber Czars It was like search­ing for a nee­dle in a haystack. Af­ter the bud­get, stock­bro­kers were driven crazy by buy­ers look­ing for soft­ware stocks. The star scrips of the in­dus­try, al­ready trad­ing in four­fig­ure prices, surged by more than Rs 100. I NDIA TO­DAY MARCH 15, 1999
