Infosys has not disclosed deal size or duration. The deal will be included in 3QFY21 TCV numbers. Unauthenticated media reports have pegged the deal at US$1.3 bn in size in November. Infrastructure management has not been an area of strength for Infosys. Deal wins validate the investments made in capabilities, assets, solutions and partnerships for building strong cloud practice.
