The Nissan Motor Company is establishing its first global centre for digital operations in India, promising to hire around 500 people for it by the end of this fiscal year.
IndiaTimes.com says the Nissan Digital Hub, to be set up in Kerala, will be followed by a number of software and information technology development centres in Asia, Europe and North America and that the Kerala centre will focus on building new-age digital capability to enhance user experiences.
“We are building our team up for this new-age digital capability. We thought that India would be a great market for us from a technology and talent perspective,” Nissan Motor Corporation Chief Information Officer Tony Thomas told PTI.
The India Times adds that he said developing such new-age capability has been necessitated by the transformation happening in the automotive industry across the globe with respect to manufacturing, automation, engineering design and how cars are sold.
