Capgemini is gearing up to launch a delivery center in Nashville, Tennessee, as the Paris-based IT/BPO provider positions itself to capitalize on the growing demand for digital transformation services in the United States.
The Nashville center will create as many as 1,500 jobs in technology areas, including cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning.
Capgemini has been gradually increasing its operational capacity in the United States since early 2020 when the demand for IT service began to soar following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the year, Capgemini expanded its Advanced Technology Development Center in Columbia, South Carolina, and a year later launched a software development center in Houston, Texas.
Both locations “have grown in size,” stated the company officials in a press release.
“In recent years, Middle Tennessee has far outpaced national technology job growth rates and is expected to continue on this trajectory for years to come,” says Tennessee Governor, Bill Lee.
Nashville not only has a conducive atmosphere for businesses but it also has abundant technology talent because of a large number of technical schools, according to Capgemini.
With more than 300,000 employees in over 50 countries, Capgemini is a giant in the global outsourcing services market.
The idea behind expanding U.S. operations is to acquire a diverse set of employees to deal with a variety of customers, says the company.
“The Nashville area is rich with diverse talent, an excellent network of local colleges and universities, and strong accessibility. It will provide opportunities for us to further support our current partners and future clients,” said Jim Bailey, Capgemini’s CEO for the Americas.
