    "This acquisition reflects Infosys' execution of its Renew and New strategy to enhance the competitiveness and productivity of current service lines by leveraging automation, innovation and artificial intelligence," Infosys said in a release.

    Commenting on the acquisition, Dr. Vishal Sikka, CEO and Managing Director of Infosys said, "The acquisition of Panaya is a key step in renewing and differentiating our service lines. This will help amplify the potential of our people, freeing us from the drudgery of many repetitive tasks, so we may focus more on the important, strategic challenges faced by our clients.

    At the same time, Panaya's proven technology helps dramatically simplify the costs and complexities faced by businesses in managing their enterprise application landscapes."
