Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology, outsourcing and next-generation services, will expand its operations in Ireland, doubling the number of staff in the country to 500 in three years and setting up its first product-centric research and development centre outside India. This project has been supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.
The expansion will see Infosys create up to 95 roles at its first dedicated product-centric research and development (R&D) center outside India, and open a second Irish facility to house up to 155 people who will provide IT services to Infosys clients. The highly skilled technology roles at the R&D facility, which will be established by EdgeVerve Systems, the product subsidiary of Infosys, will focus on FinTech research and development. The center will operate an open innovation model, working closely with customers, technology partners, academic institutions and the start-up community in areas of technology, such as blockchain and analytics.
Employees at the company’s new development center will provide technology services to its global and Ireland-based clients in the financial services industry. The work will include high-end IT consulting, business analytics, business processing and customer service. The new roles are in addition to more than 250 employees that are already working for Infosys in Ireland. This number includes the employees that have been transferred from AIB to the Infosys Booterstown facility in an announcement that was made in July 2015, and employees working onsite at client locations in Ireland.
Infosys is a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing solutions. The company enables clients, in more than 30 countries, to stay a step ahead of emerging business trends and outperform the competition.
