T-Systems to partner with Tech Mahindra; hire 6,000 in 2 years

The Indian arm of the European IT services company has opened a delivery centre in Nagpur and will be hiring talent with digital and cloud skills


T-Systems India is all set to expand its presence in the country. After Pune and Bengaluru, it has opened a new delivery centre in Nagpur, in partnership with Tech Mahindra. The Centre, located in the Mihan SEZ Zone, will be equipped with a gym, cafeteria and recreation centre among other facilities to keep employees engaged.

The strategic collaboration with Tech Mahindra is aimed at fast-tracking its ramp-up in India, which will witness the hiring of over 6,000 people in the next two years. The Company is primarily looking for talent with digital and cloud skills capable of managing the cloud and digital capabilities of its global customers.

This new Centre will deliver intelligent digital solutions and efficient cloud services to the global clients of T-Systems International, the European IT services provider.

The Centre will house a dedicated team to deliver cutting-edge technology solutions in digital and cloud. It is hoped that the Company’s access to the market, talent from tier II cities and competitive pricing will help build up the flexible capacity for T-Systems International’s delivery needs.

Adel Al-Saleh, CEO of T-Systems International is confident that this “expansion into Nagpur will benefit T-Systems’ strategy to scale in India to support our growth plans”. He believes that this tie-up will help achieve the Company’s “target of being the leader in our select markets by building an integrated portfolio of scalable Digital & Cloud services.”

Anant Padmanabhan, MD, T-Systems ICT India, reiterated how “after having successfully ramped up in Pune and Bengaluru, we wanted to tap into talent in other locations to further scale our operations, and chose Nagpur as our next location to expand, in partnership with Tech Mahindra”.

CP Gurnani, MD & CEO, Tech Mahindra, admitted, “Ease of Doing Business (EODB), availability of manpower, and access to infrastructure have accelerated Nagpur’s potential to become the next digital hub for cutting-edge innovation”. He also pointed out that “this will further help generate employment for local talent and provide them with opportunities to learn and grow with a global team.”

With around 28,000 employees worldwide, T-Systems generates annual revenues of about 4 billion euros.
