We will continue to make strategic investments in digital to leverage opportunities, and at the same time keep sharp focus on key operational efficiency parameters," said M D Ranganath, chief financial officer, Infosys.

Earlier this month, IT major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) reported a 20.7% rise in revenue in the July–September quarter at ₹36,854 crore, from ₹30,541 crore a year ago.

Analysts had expected Infosys to report stable growth. IDBI Capital Markets had forecast a 3.1% sequential revenue growth with a cross-currency headwind of 70 basis points.

“Large deal wins at over $2 billion during the quarter demonstrate our increased client relevance and also give us better growth visibility for the near term," Parekh added.
