Nissan signs MoU with the Government of Kerala to setup its Global Digital Hub in India that will develop digital systems to cope with the increasing incorporation of technology in cars.
Nissan India has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Kerala today to setup a new facility for digital operations in India that will also serve as the company’s global digital centre. This new Nissan Digital Hub will be the first of many such facilities spread around the globe as software and information technology development centers in Asia, Europe and North America. The focus on IT will place digital technology at the heart of key operations and services of Nissan’s business operations.
These Nissan Digital Hubs that are slated to come up soon will aim to provide best-in-class user experiences, product development capabilities, security and connectivity as the automotive industry evolves, with growing use of autonomous cars, connected cars and electric vehicle technology.
Nissan’s facility will come up in Trivandrum, Kerala, but before that happens, operations will begin at Technopark – a technology park owned by the Government of Kerala, in Trivandrum.
Tony Thomas, Corporate Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Nissan, commented on the matter by saying, “The new Digital Hub in Kerala will serve as an important engine to drive Nissan’s global digital transformation. This hub will help us develop and maintain a talented workforce in-house, to improve the way we serve our customers around the world.”
“Today, this landmark announcement marks the arrival of the first global brand to Kerala. The center brings a great opportunity for both Nissan and the region. It will not only provide Nissan access to a skilled and dedicated workforce but also allow Kerala to showcase its significant potential as a base for global business," said, Shri Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister for the Government of Kerala, who also holds the information technology portfolio.
