After the acquisition of Patni Computer Systems in 2011, it started the merging process and changed its name to iGATE Patni. It was changed to iGATE again on 7 May 2012. After breaking into the billion dollar club - helped by the 2011 Patni acquisition - iGate led by former Infosys executive Phaneesh has been pursuing an aggressive strategy to change outsourcing industry's traditional model of charging for time and effort. Instead, Murthy wants to charge for outcomes delivered, thus sharing greater risk with clients."[4][9]
