Buy vs. Build

Infosys unveiled a plan to acquire Fluido, a Salesforce Platinum partner in Europe, a deal that will give Infosys a dominating presence in the Nordic region.

Beyond that, Bangalore, India-based Infosys said the move – which is expected to close in the next 30 to 45 days -- will give the firm a beachhead in Europe. Fluido is the leading Salesforce adviser and consulting partner in the Nordic region and a recognized leader in cloud consulting, implementation and training services.

Infosys declined to disclose the terms of the acquisition.

In an interview with CRN, Ravi Kumar, Infosys president and deputy chief operating officer said that while the deal is a bit out of character for Infosys, which seeks to grow organically rather than through acquisitions, the potential to scale the Salesforce capabilities of Fluido across the ecosystem were too rich to ignore.

All this is happening as the 204,000-employee company is on a hiring binge in the U.S., adding 5,000 employees to its payroll in the last year, with another 5,000 yet to come.

Here’s more of Kumar had to say about the company’s latest deal.
