A few days ago, US-based Cognizant overtook Infosys to become the second-largest information technology (IT) company in India, an important milestone that saw the baton being passed from an iconic pioneer in the Indian technology space to a future contender.
The man steering Cognizant today is boyish-looking, 44-year-old Francisco D'Souza, who could easily pass for an energetic student at a management school, than for the CEO of a top-flight technology company.
Much of Cognizant's success is thanks to D' Souza.
