The Bangalore-based Indian Global software major Infosys has recently declared their plans about opening a new technology and innovation hub at the US’s North Carolina State. They have also disclosed their plans for hiring 2,000 Americans in the Raleigh Office in the next four years.
This global software major is taking small steps towards fulfilling their announcement made earlier this year, where they have apparently mentioned that the company is going to recruit about10,000 Americans by building four new such tech hubs spread all across the US by 2021. The company took this initiative to keep their prime focus on new technologies including machine learning, artificial intelligence, user experience, big data, cloud and other emerging digital technologies.
The company has recently stated to a popular media publication that the new hub, which will open in early 2018, will have an initial capacity to house 500 American workers, who will be hired over the next two years and the remaining part by 2021.
It apparently seems that this is a result of the fallout of the order of H1-B visas and the clients of North America along contributes about 60 per cent of the $10.30 billion company’s software export revenue annually. The industry reports suggest that this hub at North Carolina is going to be the second hub after Indiana state to being the first where 2,000 jobs are expected to be created for Americans.
The good news is that the global software major based out of Bangalore, Infosys has expressed their future partnership plans with the North Carolina community college system to create a customized program designed to train the new workforce innovatively. The reports have informed that North Carolina will make a contribution of $3 million grant towards training the workers.
“Innovation, technology, and education are part of who we are as North Carolinians, and along the course of this project, Infosys leaders have found that to be the case every step of the way,” as stated in a media statement by Ray Cooper, the Governor of North Carolina.
This new hub at Raleigh is created with a motive to focus on delivering cutting-edge solutions in AI, data and advanced analytics, machine learning, cloud and big data. In a media statement, the President of Infosys, Ravi Kumar has apparently said that the hub located in the area of Raleigh will support the development of co-created solutions for their valuable clients from the North Carolina state and the region around.
