Infosys Technologies, one of the leading software companies based in India.
Infosys was inducted into the Global Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE)
Hall of Fame in the year 2005 due to its innovative KM initiatives.
Since its inception, Infosys gave importance to learning in the organization.
