Infosys has entered into three-year collaboration with Cornell University to reshape the workforce driving digital transformation by advancing employee education and research. Through this collaboration, the company - alongside expert faculty at Cornell - will educate its global workforce on technologies such as Blockchain, machine learning and human computer interaction; as well as impart skills in data analytics, design, systems thinking, critical thinking and engineering on Cornell’s eCornell virtual learning platform. At least 3,000 Infosys employees globally are expected to participate in the joint certification program, while others will participate course-by-course.
The company and Cornell will jointly research technologies that are transforming the enterprise and creating new talent demand in the US, with an emphasis on Blockchain, software defined networks (SDNs) and cloud computing. For SDNs, the team will explore creating a more unified policy framework; for cloud computing, seek more efficient application deployments across the public cloud in partnership with Cornell Computing and Information Science.
Infosys is a global leader in technology services and consulting. The company enables clients in 45 countries to create and execute strategies for their digital transformation.
