European IT firm Atos, which offers digital transformation, has opened a new global delivery centre in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, with its first building on the 100-acre campus expected to house 2,300 software engineers delivering digital and technology solutions to global clients. The new campus is expected to leverage the region’s quality talent pool and provide opportunities to solve complex business problems using technology, said the company.
Sean Narayanan, SEVP and Head of Business and Platform Solutions and member of the Atos Group General Management Committee, said the centre will generate employment opportunities for local talent and leverage their potential to create new digital ecosystems for global clients.
“At Atos, we strive to hire a diverse and competent talent pool and mould it to deliver cutting-edge technology solutions to our clients. This latest global delivery centre reinforces our commitment to growing and scaling our footprint in India,” he said.
According to Ram Singampalli, Chief Delivery Officer, Atos Syntel — a member of the Atos group — the region’s legacy of educational excellence played a major role in the decision to locate the new campus. “A successful transformation is the outcome of a highly skilled workforce which leverages digital technologies to disrupt existing business models.

This new facility augments our delivery footprint in India, which includes delivery centres in Pune, Chennai, Mumbai and Bengaluru,” said the official.
