Infosys Sets up Tech and Innovation Centre in Arizona

IT consulting firm Infosys announced its new Technology and Innovation Center at Arizona, US, and plans to hire 1000 American workers in the state by the end of 2023.

Infosys in the announcement noted that it has surpassed its Spring 2017 commitment to hire 10000 American workers in the two years’ time.

Arizona Technology and Innovation Centre has a particular focus on autonomous technologies, Internet of Things, Data Science, Cybersecurity and full-stack engineering, Infosys revealed in a statement.

Infosys investment in Arizona will amplify the top talent alongside the best global talent to shrink the IT skills gap in the state, it added.

Hiring is currently in progress and the center will move to its permanent location – which is a 60,000 square foot facility in the ASU Novus Innovation Corridor by the end of 2020 – and would also accommodate around 500 employees, the announcement says.

Executive Opinion

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, said, "Today is a great day for Arizona. We are excited that Infosys, a global leader in information technology, has put down its roots in our state, a decision which reinforces Arizona’s reputation as a tech industry leader. We will continue to keep Arizona the best place in the nation for companies to relocate to and expand."

Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys, said,  "At Infosys, our focus is on harnessing, modeling and scaling a new model for workforce development in the United States. We believe the private sector has a critical role to play in implementing a model of continuous learning and on-the-job training that removes the barriers which would otherwise prevent workers from fully participating in today’s economy. We look forward to implementing that model here in Arizona, creating a local workforce prepared to address today’s most pressing business challenges."
