What the business press ignored in their coverage of the recent Infosys AGM was Vishal Sikka's extended talk about an AI-led future. He admitted that 65% of his staff were working in areas that would get commoditized (or automated) in the future. The assumption is that the remaining 35% are working in areas where Infosys would help clients figure out how to use AI (and other 'digital' technologies). The opportunity is huge, but the challenge is that neither client nor technology partner have a clear problem statement in front of them. How does one really take advantage of this AI-led future? As suggested by Narayana Murthy and often quoted by Sikka, the challenge facing Indian IT companies now is 'to become pro-active problem finders as opposed to reactive problem solvers'!
