Infosys inaugurated its first flagship Technology and Innovation Hub in Indianapolis, yesterday. In addition, the company announced that it has hired more than 2,500 American workers over the past year as part of its ongoing commitment to accelerate innovation for American enterprises.
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.
“Not long ago, Infosys announced its plans to grow and create up to 2,000 high-wage jobs for Hoosiers. Today, the company is not just up and running here in Indiana; it’s taking off. It’s great to welcome a company like Infosys that shares our vision for a 21st century skilled workforce and is committed to increasing opportunity for working adults, students and educators,” said Governor Eric J. Holcomb.
The Hub- which currently houses more than 150 employees and is growing quickly- also serves as an innovation lab, showcasing new prototypes in virtual, augmented and robotic technologies, and as a space to foster co-creation, training and collaboration. In addition, the Hub is home to an Infosys ITAR facility to help support companies requiring enhanced security services.
Infosys’ partnerships with academic institutions such as Purdue University and Udacity will provide recent graduates and experienced professionals with exposure to the latest training, research and development. These partners
augment Infosys dedicated learning facilities within the Hub, which will deliver continuous learning across the employee lifecycle.
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.
