Analog Devices, Inc., a global leader in high-performance signal processing solutions, today announced that it has realized a more than 40% reduction in the cost of operating its IT systems and processes in conjunction with Infosys Technologies Ltd.Over the past two years, Infosys has worked on multiple application development and maintenance projects for Analog Devices, enabling the company to successfully align its IT initiatives to business requirements.
"Our business requires us to be agile as a company in a fast-moving, innovation-driven industry. Therefore, as an IT organization, we must be continuously improving. Our relationship with Infosys helped us rise to this challenge," said Larry Loh, CIO of Analog Devices, "Infosys' ability to ramp up and down on resources on very short notices, the depth and breadth in the skill sets of their people and their predictable delivery capabilities sets them apart from other global players. Infosys' process-driven approach gives us confidence in their on-time and on-budget execution, while its proprietary methodologies and tools ensure continued cost containment through process streamlining, defect minimization and rework elimination. We are delighted with the results Infosys produced to improve our competitive advantage."
"Infosys' primary task of assisting Analog Devices to be flexible and efficient in the midst of tremendous growth was possible mainly through our sharp focus on their customers and business goals, as well as our utilization of the global delivery model, which allows us to tap into IT talent pools from around the world to deliver the best services at a highly competitive price," said Prasad Thrikutam, Head of the High-Tech and Discrete Manufacturing business unit at Infosys Technologies.
