With this engagement, HCL will become the largest IT services provider of Indian origin in the Nordics. It will build on this exceptional position and accelerate through cutting edge initiatives, such as the Centre of Excellence in Gothenburg, to deepen its relationships and further integrate with clients, helping them to achieve their IT transformation ambitions and vision in the region.
