BANGALORE, India, October 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Infosys, a global leader in consulting and technology, has received the Microsoft Platform Modernization award for sales achievement for its Legacy Modernization solution, which helps customers migrate to Microsoft platforms.
The award reinforces the longstanding alliance between Infosys and Microsoft in developing best-in-class solutions.

"We are pleased to present the Microsoft Platform Modernization sales achievement award to Infosys for 2012," said Bob Ellsworth, Microsoft Worldwide Director of Platform Modernization. "Infosys' ability to effectively deliver numerous modernization projects moving legacy systems to Windows Server and SQL is enabling our joint customers to reach their TCO and agility goals."
