Vishal Sikka Has Reshuffled Top Responsibilities Of Infosys

Vishal Sikka has undertaken the biggest restructuring in Infosys since he took vishal_sikka_infosysover as the company’s CEO in August last year. He has reorganized the company’s delivery function and has reshuffled the responsibilities of a number of top executives. Michael Reh, a former colleague of Sikka’s at SAP and who now heads Infosys’ banking product Finacle, has replaced Sanjay Purohit as the head of its products & platforms subsidiary Edgeverve Systems.

Michael Reh, a former colleague of Sikka’s at SAP and who now heads Infosys’ banking product Finacle, has replaced Sanjay Purohit as the head of its products & platforms subsidiary Edgeverve Systems.

Reh will continue to look after Finacle. Company sources said they would soon appoint a CEO for Edgeverve, who will report to Reh. Edgeverve is modelled like a software startup.

The change appears to have been driven by the rather lacklustre performance of Edgeverve. The contribution of the products & platforms business to overall revenues has barely increased over the past several years. Reh, with his background in SAP, a products company, is seen as a better bet.
