Indian software services giant Infosys , headquartered in Bangalore, will expand its operations in Ireland, doubling the number of staff in the country to 500 in three years and setting up its first product-centric research and development centre outside India, with a second Irish facility to provide IT services to Infosys clients.

The roles to be filled at the R&D facility, which will be established by EdgeVerve Systems, the product subsidiary of Infosys, are “highly skilled”, and will focus on FinTech research and development, with the company operating an “open innovation model”. It will see staff working closely with customers, technology partners, academic institutions and the start-up community in areas of technology such as blockchain and analytics.

At the support site, employees will provide technology services to Infosys’ clients – work will include high-end IT consulting, business analytics, business processing and customer service.

Vishal Sikka, CEO and managing director of Infosys commented :

“Much like Ireland, Infosys has based its growth on a foundation of education, lifelong learning and a deep commitment to innovation. Infosys is already working with clients in Ireland helping them explore new ways of working and advancing, by embracing technology-led innovation.”

Infosys intends to develop new technologies and support innovation in global financial institutions as part of the expansion plans, which have been supported by Ireland’s Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.
