Infosys, a global provider of supply chain visibility software, has launched a new system for infrastructure testing.
The platform contains services that cover an entire infrastructure lifecycle, from the development of new hardware through a lifetime of integration, migration, and operation.
Infosys said companies can use its tools to test systems and determine the business-readiness of existing infrastructure as well as predict and monitor performance during changes associated with upgrades and shifts to the cloud.
A key goal for such testing is to stay ahead of potential downtime and outages. Such downtime costs, according to various reports, between $75,000 and $500,000 an hour for larger enterprise and industry companies.
Chandrashekar Kakal, senior vice president and global head of business IT services, said the company is "already seeing a positive response from many clients for this offering and (has) also started assisting several organizations across geographies and industries."
The company also confirmed that, despite uncertainty in the American and European markets, roughly 23,000 new employees will be joining Infosys in the next month. Chief Executive Officer S. D. Shibulal said the company delivered the offer letters last year. For the current fiscal 2012-13, Infosys plans to hire 35,000 employees. - Geoff Whiting
