Hub is expected to bring increased client collaboration and technological innovation
Infosys (NYSE: INFY), a global leader in consulting, technology and next-generation services, today inaugurated its flagship technology and innovation hub in Indianapolis. 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.
“What an honour to celebrate Infosys’ grand opening in Indiana today,” Governor Eric J. Holcomb said. “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. I’m glad they’ll be a part of our efforts to take Indiana to the next level, and I look forward to witnessing their continued success.”
“We are excited to continue our collaboration with the State of Indiana by opening our first technology and innovation hub here in Indianapolis,” said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys. “This 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 digitise and renew their core businesses as well as innovate into new breakthrough areas.”
“It’s an honour to once again welcome Infosys to Indianapolis as they open their newest tech hub. Time and time again, our community has proven itself an epicentre of innovation and we’re excited to reach new heights alongside Infosys,” said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. “With thousands of new employees, their place in our community will ensure expanded access to S.T.E.M. programing, helping our city succeed for decades to come.”
“We are excited about the technology and innovation hub that Infosys is launching. Cummins, like many other companies in Indiana, relies on access to great technology, research advances and talent development. The hub will not only help develop the skills we need, it will also serve as a forum to exchange ideas and knowledge with experts across critical disciplines,” said Tom Linebarger, Cummins Inc. Chairman and CEO.
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 us 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.
Infosys Foundation USA will host Pathfinders Summer Institute, a national convening for K–12 teacher education in Computer Science and Making. The event will be held at Indiana University Bloomington (IUB) for more than 800 public school teachers from July 15–20, 2018.
