Infosys opens innovation hub in US’ Hartford

Bengaluru: Global software major Infosys on Thursday said it has opened its technology-cum-innovation hub at Hartford in Connecticut in the US to work for its clients in the region.

“The Hartford hub will help us to work closely with our clients in the region and serve as the global hub for our insurance and HealthTech efforts,” said the city-based IT firm in a statement here on Thursday.

As part of its May 2, 2017, strategic decision to hire 10,000 Americans by 2023 to bridge the IT skills gap in the US, the $11-billion firm has recruited about 7,000 Americans during the last 18 months.

The hub will have Living Labs for the future of insurance, healthcare, and manufacturing. It will also help organizations learn through making, bring expertise in technologies like blockchain, extended reality and cognitive capabilities with design thinking, agile and DevOps.

As a methodology combining software development with IT operations, DevOps shortens the development lifecycle while delivering features, fixes, and updates frequently in alignment with business objectives.

“The Hartford technology and innovation hub is an important milestone in our efforts to help American enterprises revitalize their core businesses,” said Infosys Chief Operating Officer U.B. Pravin Rao on the occasion.
