Seshasayee’s statement comes after Murthy gave a speech to Infosys’ investors on Tuesday and quoted an anonymous that said the former board chairman had lied to shareholders.
The IT services company, which is part of the Mahindra Group, has been working on creating its automation framework AQT and its own artificial intelligence engine TACTiX.
Murthy’s address to investors has been much anticipated to understand if the combative septuagenarian had toned down his demand on corporate governance issues.
Murthy’s disagreement with the previous board over the release of the report led to CEO Vishal Sikka’s resignation and the board’s public attack on Murthy.
US-headquartered Cognizant Technologies Solutions does not believe success is guaranteed as the IT industry begins to make investments in newer technologies.
Board’s scathing attack on Murthy and resignation of its members amid clamour to bring back Infosys cofounder as an advisor led to his comeback.
"We will also look at Infosys alumni who have done well for themselves in the external world,” Nilekani said.
Separately, top executives of 12 large mutual funds and insurers have written to Infosys’ board, asking that Nilekani be invited to join the board in a “suitable capacity”.
“The investment team's thesis on Infosys has not been materially affected by the CEO resignation,“ Kimberly Weinrick, OppenheimerFunds spokesperson said.
On Tuesday, Infosys co-chairman Ravi Venkatesan met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
