Infosys, one of the global leaders in next-generation digital services and consulting, has recently inaugurated its new development Centre (DC) in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. The DC is the first state-of-the-art facility of Infosys in the state and marks a significant milestone in the company’s growth and innovation journey.
The DC, which was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Mr. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, on October 16, 2023, is spread across 83,750 sq. ft. and can accommodate approximately 1,000 employees. The DC is designed to provide greater flexibility to employees to work in a hybrid mode, staying closer to their homes and reducing their commute time. The DC is also aligned with Infosys’ Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments and green building standards, ensuring energy and water efficiency, as well as waste management.
The DC will enable Infosys to attract, re-skill, and up-skill local talent to work on global opportunities through next-generation technologies like cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), and digital. The DC will also foster inclusiveness and equality through modern hybrid workplaces, incorporating new designs and harnessing local talent. Infosys has partnerships with many excellent educational institutions in the city from where they will hire fresh talent.
Employees at the Visakhapatnam DC will work on cutting-edge IT technologies and serve clients globally in multiple industry verticals, including financial services, energy and utility using technologies like Java, J2EE, SAP, data science and data analytics. The DC will also offer various learning and development opportunities to employees to enhance their skills and competencies.
The DC is part of Infosys’ vision to amplify human potential and create the next opportunity for people, businesses and communities. The DC will also contribute to the socio-economic development of the city and the state by creating employment opportunities, supporting local businesses, and engaging in community building activities.
The inauguration of Infosys’ Visakhapatnam DC is a landmark moment in the city’s IT landscape and a testament to the company’s commitment to the state of Andhra Pradesh. The DC will not only boost the IT sector in the city but will also strengthen Visakhapatnam’s sustainability story through Infosys’ ESG efforts.
