On 18 August 2017, Bangalore-based offshore services firm Infosys issued a terse statement saying, “the Board of Directors (has) accepted the notice of resignation of Dr. Vishal Sikka as the Managing Director and CEO, effective immediately.” The statement cited among his reasons for leaving, “a continuous stream of distractions and disruptions over the recent months and quarters, increasingly personal and negative as of late, as preventing management's ability to accelerate the Company's transformation”.

His resignation was not the end of the matter. The long-standing dispute between Infosys lead co-founder and industry scion, NR Narayana Murthy and the erstwhile Infosys board continues to play out in the very public eye of the very excitable Indian media.

TechMarketView Managing Partner Anthony Miller – widely acknowledged as an authority on the so-called Indian Pure-Plays (IPPs) – asks the only question that really matters about this unhappy state of affairs: Did Sikka leave Infosys in better shape than when he joined?

You may be surprised by the answer!
