pipeline of large deals," Infosys CEO and managing director S D Shibulal said.

"However, the broader economic environment remains difficult. Even so, we remain cautiously optimistic about the

The infosys results evoked a favourable response from business head honchos.

According to Partha Iyengar, Country Manager, Research, Gartner India, "Infosys results are finally coming closer to reflecting the demand reality, and if this sustains for the next two quarters could indicate that the worst phase of the company is behind it and it can stand to benefit from the strengthening demand environment.

"The upping of full year guidance is also a good sign for the company which shows some semblance of a return to confidence for the company, which was quickly becoming a 'negative outlier' amongst the Indian services majors", Iyengar said.

Dipen Shah, Head of PCG (Private Client Group) Research, Kotak Securities, said, "Infosys' 3Q results were above expectations.

"The organic revenue growth beat the guidance given by the company earlier. Margins were marginally lower v/s our expectations, though.

US and European economies are major revenue drivers for Indian IT companies.

"With greater stability expected in those economies, the velocity of decision making by clients may increase, which will be positive for Indian vendors.

"We also gain comfort from the management's indication that, there is a strong pipeline which Infosys has."
