Infosys Starts First Tech-Innovation hub in the United States
Software services exporter Infosys has launched a Technology and Innovation Hub in Indianapolis, United States. It will be the first of company’s proposed technology hubs in the US.
A filing issued by the Bengaluru-headquartered company said it has hired more than 2,500 American workers during the past year as part of its ongoing commitment to accelerate innovation for American enterprises.
The company in May 2017 had announced its plans to open four technology and innovation hubs across the US generating 10,000 Jobs for Americans and boosting the activities on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, user experience, emerging digital technologies, cloud, and big data.
The Indianapolis Hub in One America Tower will train, upskill and reskill employees in the technologies required to help businesses accelerate their digital transformations, while also allowing Infosys to work closely with clients to develop cross-functional solutions to pressing business challenges.
The facility at Indianapolis, which currently has more than 150 employees, serves as an innovation lab, showcasing new prototypes in virtual, augmented and robotic technologies, said the company. This hub will also foster co-creation, training, and collaboration.
Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys said, “This (hub) will expand our ability to serve clients’ needs in cutting-edge technologies and evolve our local workforce to help our clients in their efforts to digitize and renew their core businesses as well as innovate into new breakthrough areas.”
Governor Eric J. Holcomb stated, “Not long ago, Infosys announced its plans to grow and create up to 2000 high-wage jobs for Hoosiers. Today, the company is not just up and running here in Indiana; it’s taking off.”
