IBM Consulting launched new Client Innovation Center in Gandhinagar

IBM has recently announced the opening of its new IBM Consulting Client Innovation Center (CIC) in Gandhinagar, India. The move is part of IBM's continued expansion into non-metro and emerging cities across the country. One of the benefits of the Center is that it provides IBM Consulting with access to a wider talent pool while also helping to fast-track the region's digital transformation and economic growth.

Speaking about the opening of the new IBM Consulting Client Innovation Center in Gandhinagar, Hon'ble Chief Minister of Gujarat Shri Bhupendra Patel said, "Gujarat has consistently set milestones for the country as it progresses in its digital transformation journey and contributing to the realization of the Digital India vision. Our collaboration with industry leaders like IBM has been a key driver of this success and has been a testament to the effective value proposition of Gujarat's forward thinking policies. IBM's expansion of its operations to Gandhinagar through the new IBM Consulting CIC will further strengthen our IT ecosystem and unlock the potential of Gujarat's rich talent pool".

IBM Consulting intends to utilize the Center to concentrate on significant technology areas such as generative artificial intelligence (AI), hybrid cloud, and cybersecurity. The center will also employ the pool of security engineering experts to design cybersecurity platforms and accelerators for automating threat management, enhancing regulatory compliance, and proactively preparing clients against various attack plans. "India continues to play a key role in our growth strategy", said John Granger, Senior Vice President, IBM Consulting. "Expanding our CIC network to Gandhinagar will scale our asset-led delivery of IT services and enhance our value proposition to our clients and partners worldwide. This will help us address the growing client demand for productivity powered by generative AI and cybersecurity, which is fundamentally changing how businesses operate".

IBM is expanding its presence in Gandhinagar, which will create new opportunities for existing employees and allow the company to tap into the potential talent pool of recent graduates from the surrounding educational institutions. With this expansion, IBM Consulting will now operate from twelve CIC locations across India, including Bhubaneshwar, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, National Capital Region, Pune, Mysuru, Kochi, and Coimbatore.
