Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology and next-generation services, today launched an initiative to accelerate digital leadership for its clients in Australia and shrink the digital skills gap in the region with the creation of 1200 jobs and the opening of three Innovation Hubs by 2020.
Senior Vice President for Australia and New Zealand at Infosys, Andrew Groth was joined by Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, the Hon. Karen Andrews, at Infosys’ North Sydney office to announce a broad range of initiatives to meet the nation’s ever-growing demand for digital expertise.
The initiatives will form an education ecosystem through which Infosys would enable continuous learning opportunities. They include:
• The creation of 1200 IT jobs in Australia by 2020, of which around 40 per cent will be Australian university graduates from a range of fields including Computer Science and Design.
• The development of three Innovation Hubs across Australia.
• Strengthening Infosys’ academic partnerships to attract top graduate talent and accelerate digital skill building in Australia.
The new Innovation Hubs will serve as a platform to enable Infosys to co-create and co-innovate alongside clients, academia and government to accelerate innovation and upskilling of talent in emerging technologies and solutions.
This approach provides Infosys with a strong foundation to meet rising demand for expertise in areas like machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), user experience, cyber security, digital platforms, big data and cloud – now and in the future as technology and business needs evolve.
