His brainchild, Infosys International, a certified minority business enterprise, has been offering IT products and services to equip local and federal governments in the U.S. with modern technologies. Whether it is upgrading a county’s infrastructure to cloud-based services, developing anti-terror mobile technology, or developing apps for agencies, Infosys International provides a wide range of solutions and toolsets to help government agencies meet the market demands. Infosys International, being certified partners of industry-leading IT companies like Microsoft, Infor, and PeopleSoft, also offers platform integration and network management services for government departments.
At a federal level, Infosys International has accomplished many remarkable infrastructure management services for the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Air Force, Army, IRS, Air National Guard, and Department of Energy. The firm has also been a significant part of NY Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s “See Something Say Something” program and built a simple-to-use smartphone app for commuters to report any suspicious activity.
In the current era of e-governance, implementation of advanced cloud technologies has become an important mandate for public agencies. However, Mehta notes, “Since public agencies are subject to critical audits, the impact of adopting a new technology is vetted across multiple parameters which becomes highly time-consuming.” Particularly, smaller communities face more challenges in technology implementation due to financial constraints. While Infosys International works with governments of all sizes and stature, its affordable IT solutions aim to bridge the standards of public service operation between a federal setup and a small, local government system.
Two such projects–both developed for the first time in the country–help solve major problems for local governments.
The Department of Health and Human Services for Nassau County, NY had an overwhelming issue of handling too many paper records for which they were not able to provide case documents to clients in a timely fashion. Mehta recalls, “They were literally drowning in over 60 million paper case-file documents.” Infosys International solved this predicament well within the county’s budget by developing a “No Wrong Door” system, an application that allowed case workers to access digitized case documents from the health agency’s general client inquiry software.

Under Mehta’s able leadership, Infosys International has reached numerous milestones. Today Infosys International’s 14,000-square-foot headquarters also houses a startup incubator known as the “digital ballpark” which currently mentors 16 startups from Long Island. As a visionary, Mehta foresees the mobile application market gaining a very promising foothold in the future of e-governance and looks forward to capitalizing on this opportunity. Striding ahead, he also envisages Infosys International growing considerably from a product innovation perspective to offer affordable solutions to smaller communities.
