Bengaluru: Infosys CEO Salil Parekh on Tuesday said the company has begun to focus on its elements of growth, including digital and automation, to improve its clients' businesses as part of its transformation plans that kickstarted two quarters ago.
He was replying to a question about US President Donald Trump's calling for tighter controls on skilled worker visas in his "Buy American, Hire American" executive order.
"We have set ourselves at transformation plans. On that we have started a journey in first two quarters, where we have started to track several areas. Our company's focus clearly is on digital and improving cost services with the help of artificial intelligence and automation," Parekh told reporters here.
"There is a lot more work, however, the company needs to do for overall transformation," he said.
