India’s largest Tech giant, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has announced recently, its plans to expand operations in New Jersey by hiring nearly 1,000 additional employees by the end of 2023.
The plan is to meet the growing needs of customers to digitally transform their businesses. To nurture a pipeline of local IT talent for the state, TCS will also grow the reach of its STEM and computer science education programs in New Jersey by 25 percent, expanding teacher training and student programs.
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said last month, “We are thrilled to have Tata Consultancy Services expand its footprint in New Jersey and invest in our future workforce by expanding its STEM education programs,”
“TCS is creating thousands of highly-skilled jobs and delivering significant economic growth to New Jersey. Our economic mission trip to India in 2019 continues to bear fruit as we have seen deep investments from Indian companies in our state. We look forward to strengthening our ongoing partnership with TCS as we build a more diverse and inclusive innovation ecosystem where high-tech companies can grow and thrive.” Murphy added.
TCS’ Edison Business Center, one of 30 TCS facilities in the U.S., serves more than 100 customers in New Jersey. IT Major has more than 3,700 employees in the state who provide IT and consulting services across industries, harnessing technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing, and enterprise software.
