These services are aimed at helping clients address three key aspects of their business: a non-disruptive renewal and simplification of their existing landscapes; introduction of new offerings and business models in a dynamic business environment, and creating a culture of innovation in their organizations.
The first of these services is Ki - Knowledge-based management and evolution of landscapes which captures the knowledge within an organization – in its people, in its structures and systems over long periods of time. Ki is a large scale, modular service to help renew enterprise landscapes.
Do refers to the service offering on Design Thinking and design-led initiatives that will provide Infosys the framework for finding, understanding and defining the problems that are most important to clients and their businesses.
Ai refers to platforms, and platforms as a service to build intelligent solutions. Ai is about Platforms that help to harmonize and unify the disjointed initiatives in enterprises – and help build solutions to emerging business problems.
Together, Ai, Ki and Do, help bring together existing Infosys services to serve strategic priorities of global businesses.  ( and incidentally AiKiDo  is the name of an East Asian  Martial Arts form)
Says  Vishal Sikka, Chief Executive Officer, Infosys: “I am very excited to announce three service offerings:Ki in Knowledge-Based IT, Do in Design Thinking, and Ai in Platforms. This is an important step to further accelerate the execution of our strategy to renew existing services and move into entirely new areas, as well as to tie together our existing service lines to the strategic priorities of our clients. Ai, Ki and Do combine into Aikido, the east Asian martial arts, and just as Aikido aims to understand the forces, and redirectthese it into a fundamental strength, our Ai, Ki and Do services will help combine the knowledge and energy in an enterprise towards its strategic path and priorities.”
