The Information Technology 100


Infosys Technologies

Infosys, India's No. 2 software services exporter, grew nearly 50% in 2004, to $1.59 billion in revenues. And it's well on its way to cross $2 billion this year. Progeon, the unit that manages business processes, is doubling every year and expects to reach $80 million in sales this year. Thrilled investors in India value it more than rival Tata Consultancy Services, which is two-fifths bigger in revenues. Infosys customers are happy too: 19 out of 20 come back to the Bangalore company with repeat orders. Now, Infosys has its eye on China. Of the 12,600 people it will hire this year, nearly 1,000 will be at its Shanghai offices.
