AccoladES is a labour of love (and a little boredom) for the past one year. It is a website that I have be designing for the HR department of ES, the largest unit within Infosys. Yesterday it was inaugurated by none other than Mr. N. R. Narayana Murthy. Infosys doesn’t have a 20% rule like Google, but sites and solutions like Accolades are getting more and more recognition these days. It is great for Innovation at Infosys and I hope will go a long way in helping Infy move up the value chain.
Sorry for the poor mobile-cam quality! NRN is on the projected screen (top-left). I am behind the lectern (top-right)
Some of the features of the site:
- Accolades has a Web 2.0 feature called Peer Appreciations for facilitating online appreciations.
- It runs on ASP (vanilla not .NET) and IIS which can scale up to hundreds of simultaneous users.
- It has an aesthetically pleasing and minimalistic design
Not that I am complaining but I also see a lot of MCing coming my way as well!
