Infosys plans major US expansion

India’s leading software services firm Infosys plans to hire 10,000 American workers over the next two years.

As part of this initiative, the Bengaluru-headquartered major will open four new technology and innovation hubs across the country focusing on cutting-edge technology areas, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, user experience, emerging digital technologies, cloud, and big data.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb welcomed Infosys plans, which will create 2,000 jobs in his state alone. He plans to lead a high-powered trade delegation to India later this year with the sole objective of attracting more Indian business, particularly IT companies.

He said: “Indiana's become the best place in the country to create and innovate.

“That's why this partnership, with not just Infosys but the other companies that we discussed, are so important. Because it is the future. This knowledge economy is the future and it's exciting to launch new efforts here.”
