The creation of a digital development centre in Mississauga is expected to create 500 jobs over the next three years.
Infosys, a digital services and consulting firm, says it will create the 50,000 sq-ft centre at its Mississauga Explorer Dr. location to “train, upskill, and reskill employees in the technologies needed to help Canadian businesses accelerate their digital transformation.”
Infosys believes the new hub will help with client collaboration and specialize in artificial intelligence, data science, automation, and machine learning
In the GTA Infosys currently serves businesses in the financial services, healthcare, communications, retail, and natural resources sectors.
“Talent and high-tech know-how are in abundance, there is a real aptitude for new workplace development strategies, and many of our clients are based here,” said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys. “Even better, this will enable us to be part of an ecosystem that reaches across the region, linking the private sector with innovative research and learning institutions in Canada.”
In response to demand for training, re-skilling, and learning by employers, Infosys previously committed to double its Canadian workforce to 4,000 employees by 2023.
The company believes the digital development centre will play a key role in this expansion and lead the building of digital capabilities and training for the next generation of IT talent to support Canadian businesses.
While the digital development centre is the first-of-its-kind in Canada for Infosys, it is based on the model of six similar digital centres in the U.S. which hire from local colleges and provide training and digital career paths.Insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
