✔ Most situations, it is the client trying to push for better effectiveness with the system being implemented — Infosys has a proactive method of pushing their customer to be more effective through using the system as a tool instead of viewing as a means-to-an-end. Is this somthing cultural? Or something lacking elsewhere that should be implemented on an industry level?
