Infosys opens first innovation hub in the United States

Infosys, India’s second-largest software services exporter, on Tuesday launched a Technology and Innovation Hub in Indianapolis, United States. This is the first of the company’s proposed technology hubs in the US.
 
The Bengaluru-headquartered company also 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.
 
In May last year, Infosys had announced its plans to hire 10,000 Americans in a couple of years and open four technology and innovation hubs across the US to boost 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.
 
“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,” said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys.
 
“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,” Governor Eric J. Holcomb was quoted saying.
