Topic: Infosys is exploring the use of outcome-based pricing in order to become a strategic partners to clients
Project: I benchmarked the use of outcome-based pricing in various industries, with a focus on the technology sector. In combination with internal interviews with Infosys stakeholders – such as the Co-Chairman of the Board – some of whom had employed outcome-based pricing on a trial basis.
Outcome: I created a series of recommendations for the use of outcome-based pricing in particular situations, beginning with a trial series in certain business units. I presented my findings to the Head of Corporate Planning.
“I had a great time and learned a lot.”
"I highly recommend the InStep program to everyone, regardless of what you are studying and at what stage of your studies you are in. The combination of working for such an innovative and growing company in a country as diverse and interesting as India was a transformational experience."
Topic: Infosys’ Retail, CPG and Logistics unit created a solution that provides visibility into shopping behavior and shelf activity through an in-store network of wireless sensor-based applications. It enables real-time collaboration between people (shoppers), places (retailers) and products (CPG companies) at the point of purchase.
Project: My first project I conducted competitive analysis on Shopping Trip 360 (a suite of pervasive technology solutions for retailers) in preparation for its launch, which occurred at the beginning of August. The analysis was approved and used by the senior leadership of my business unit.
Outcome: The competitive analysis was used in positioning the Shopping Trip 360 solution in the marketplace, and the solution débuted during my internship.
Christine ZhangStudent of Smith College Interned with Knowledge Management
“Working with the KM team gave me the opportunity to unite my quantitative analysis skills with my written communication skills in analyzing and researching data from Infosys’ Chinese and Australian subsidiaries. The internship was amazing, both professionally and personally.”
Topic: Knowledge Management (KM) is a way of leveraging the collective intellectual power of a company. It is especially important in large corporations such as Infosys, because it creates official channels that help employees share and transfer knowledge. For example, the KShop database is a Google-like search engine that contains a repository of documents written by Infoscions on various subjects.
Project: Christine worked with the KM team to develop strategic business initiatives for launching and promoting Knowledge Management in Infosys Australia and Infosys China.
Outcome: Her research enabled a better understanding of the cultural aspects of Australia and China.
