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.”

  "Jos le4htee sille linjalle ette4 budo on soaattito johon on liitetty kunniaan liittyvie4 arvoja, niin silloinhan voi kysye4 ette4 miksi ihmeesse4 sine4 tai mine4 harjoittelisimme budoa. Ei meiste4 kumpikaan tule koskaan tarvimaan sotilastaitoja eike4 siksi ole perustelutua kuluttaa siihen pahimmillaan 6 pe4ive4n iltoja viikossa. Se kuitenkin on tavallaan menee ve4he4n asian sivuun, mutta kylle4he4n site4 voi silti pohtia koska site4 voisi tehde4 jotain je4rkeve4mpe4e4kin ajallaan, kuten re4mpie4 metse4sse4 sieneste4me4sse4 tai hakata halkoja. Kaikenkaikkiaan kamppailulajien harjoittelu on aika pf6lve4stie4 touhua.Ehke4 te4sse4 on sellainen juttu mite4 en ole erikseen maininnut, ette4 minusta budossa konflikti on te4rkee4sse4 osassa. Se ette4 on olemassa hyf6kke4ys joka pite4e4 torjua, tai hyf6ke4te4 itse. Se on yksi juttu mike4 aikidosta puuttuu, hyf6kke4e4minen. Siksi minusta jos aikidoa harjoittelee budona, pite4e4 myf6s harjoitella site4 miten aikidon periaatteita ke4ytte4en hyf6ke4te4e4n. Se ette4 O-Sensei loi aikidon sellaiselle (uskonnollisen hihhuloinnin) pohjalle ette4 ei ole vihollisia vaan on vain ihmisie4 joiden ve4lille pite4isi rakentaa rauha, se minusta on melkein ristiriidassa budon kanssa. Siis se miten mine4 site4 sanaa ke4yte4n. Ehke4 olisi hyf6dylliste4 puhua aikidosta aina kaksiosaisena asiana: tekniikoina joissa ke4ytete4e4n toisen voimaa oman sijasta, ja konfliktinke4sittelytapana jossa pyrite4e4n mahdollisimman ve4he4e4n vahinkoon. Jos kamppailulajeja haluaa harjoitella, niin aikidohan on monella tavalla ainoa je4rkee4ve4 tapa koska eihe4n kukaan je4rjisse4e4n oleva ihminen halua toista vahingoittaa. Vahingoittaa ellei ole pakko ja silloinkin vain mahdollisimman ve4he4n."
