One can accumulate 3i Infotech as a value pick.
This has not participated much in the recent run up. This should not
be affected much due to rupee factor as most of its services are
across Europe and in India.
I feel 3i Infotech would be an outperformer in the IT pack.

3i INFOTECH IN ASIA PACIFIC
3i Infotech Asia Pacific operations manage a vast geographical spread
from China & Korea in the north to Australia & New Zealand in the
south, and Japan in the west to Thailand in the east.
3i Infotech established its Asia Pacific entity in Singapore in
November 2001 and has during this short span of time, gained rapid
success in the areas of Banking, Insurance, ERP & Services with more
than 49 live customer sites to date. From its Singapore office, 3i
Infotech took rapid strides to enter the regional key markets of ASEAN
as well while paving the way to move into the lucrative North Asian
markets of China (PRC) and Korea.
Towards this the first step was in Malaysia. Soon after the successful
foray in Singapore, 3i Infotech expanded its operation by establishing
a subsidiary office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in September 2002 after
being awarded the prestigious and coveted Multimedia Super-Corridor
(MSC) status given by the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDC).
Success came rapidly with a multimillion dollar breakthrough in a
prestigious Malaysian insurance company specialised in Takaful Islamic
Insurance business followed by critical breakthroughs with the ERP
offering in the manufacturing and distribution segments of the
Enterprise activities in Malaysia.
With Malaysia as the hub, 3i Infotech embarked upon harnessing
opportunities in the regional markets of South East Asia and together
with its Singapore operations roped in several lucrative banking,
insurance and ERP deals in Thailand, Indonesia and Philippines from
several large reputed local, regional brands as well as European
Continuing its commitment for business expansion in the ASEAN Region,
3i Infotech has invested in the high growth economy of Thailand by
setting up a wholly owned subsidiary office in Bangkok. With a fully
operational local office, 3i Infotech is poised to meet the growing
market needs more effectively.
Encouraged by the progress 3i Infotech decided to locate its insurance
practice for the whole region in Kuala Lumpur and establish its
regional software development centre to address the growing needs of
the insurance industry in the region, provide enhanced customer care
through quick response as well as to address its commitments to MDC.
After having met with success in South East Asia with its entire
business line, 3i Infotech is now poised to make its presence felt
down under by strengthening its existing office in Sydney to focus on
the Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) market.
