Meanwhile, the sources also say the scope of the work could be extended to 10 years, with the contract value rising to over $2 billion. This big deal will increase a good part of the surge in the company’s share price and the confidence the company had in reinstating its revenue for the year. When Infosys was asked about this big deal, they declined to comment on it.

According to Economic Times report, Infosys won this deal in a battle with Wiproin the final stage. Other IT firms who were also part in the race were Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Accenture. 

Getting into details about the deal, Infosys is said to have set up a 3,000-seater facility in Electronics City in Bengaluru to service the deal which combines BPM services and digital transformation work to take Vanguard’s record-keeping services onto a cloud-based platform. 

The company will initially have 300-400 people working out of the facility and it will ramp up gradually, based on the release timeline. On winning the deal, Infosys said this did not include the Vanguard deal, as the company won $1.7 billion worth of deals in the April-June quarter, ET further reports.

Giving details on Vanguard, it manages and holds nearly 3 percent stake in Infosys. Vanguard also manages more than $1.3 trillion in DC (defined-contribution) assets that plans where employers and employees make regular contributions to secure the latter’s retirement days. 

With growing demand and business, Infosys said around 1,300 Vanguard roles supporting the full-service record-keeping client administration, operations, and technology functions will transition to Infosys. Also, the initial deal has started in the beginning of 2020 after which a Vanguard team visited its Indian and MNC IT partners to assess vendor capabilities and maturity of the digital services. 

The people and names who were part of the team were, Infosys president and BFSI head Mohit Joshi, BFS business head in North America Dennis Gada, president & delivery head Ravi Kumar, CFO Nilanjan Roy, cloud & infrastructure business head Anant R Adya, and BFS sales vice-president Nageswar Cherukupalli. These were the important people who brought the deal to fruition, ET states. 

“An underlying risk on some large deals is difficulty in achieving the delivery and cost expectations and then experiencing margin shortfalls,” said Rod Bourgeois, head of research in US-based DeepDive Equity Research.
