DXC Technology to establish 'Digital Transformation Center' in New Orleans

Tuesday 14 November 2017 | 16:00 CET | News

DXC Technology plans to establish a 'Digital Transformation Center' in Louisiana, creating approximately 2,000 jobs in New Orleans over the next five years. DXC’s partnership with the City and State will extend to local educational institutions to recruit talent, develop technology education programmes, and provide ongoing learning and development opportunities for employees. The company said this initiative represents the state’s largest single higher-education investment in a private-sector workforce partnership, seeking to expand the number of degrees awarded annually in computer science, management, and science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM-related studies.

DXC said its centre will focus on the development, delivery and ongoing support of next-generation digital services and products including applications, cloud computing, cybersecurity, data analytics, and intelligent automation that serve the company’s global clients. The company intends to begin operations in New Orleans in January 2018 at a location in the city’s Central Business District to be finalised soon. The company said it will soon start recruiting and hiring for available positions.

DXC established 'Digital Transformation Centers' that align its business and client goals with leading educational institutions in the UK and, most recently, Australia.

DXC Technology was formed in April by the merger of CSC and the Enterprise Services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The company serves nearly 6,000 clients across 70 countries.
