IT majors now in race for low-value US state deals
HTML clipboardMUMBAI/BANGALORE: Infosys Technologies
Wipro and HCL Technologies are among the software service providers that are laying foundation for the next round of multi-million dollar orders from the big US corporations, by pitching for low-value, but politically important US state governments' orders.
Infosys, which counts JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley as clients for its services, bids for Arizona Public Service's (APS) 400 positions, who work in its information-services department, and another 400 or so contractors to raise the staff strength for undisclosed amount.
Nine other US states, some from where politicians opposed offshoring work, are looking to outsource their healthcare operations worth over $2 billion, said Wipro chief strategy officer KR Lakshminarayana, and the company hopes to get a slice of these.
