Infosys opening innovation hub in Indiana

Software major Infosys is opening an innovation hub in Indiana and will hire 2,000 workers, with plans to set up many more such hubs in the US, Infosys non-executive chairman Nandan Nilekani said. Nilekani said Infosys was using its infrastructure in capacity building for the future. The Bengaluru-based IT major will replicate its Indian model of hiring thousands of fresh graduates from campuses and then training and deploying them on projects for customers, in the US. Nilekani, who returned at the helm of India’s second-largest IT services company in August, said the company would look to create more innovation hubs beginning with Indiana and use its deep capabilities in training to educate local people in new technologies.
