November 17, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 17, 2021--

Capgemini today announced plans to launch a new delivery center in Nashville, TN in 2022. The Nashville center will complement the recent expansion of Capgemini sites in Columbia, SC (2020), and Houston, TX (2021) to better serve clients, improve solution delivery and develop talent. Capgemini’s investment in business growth is projected to deliver more than 1,500 new jobs in high-value and fast-growing technology areas, including cloud, artificial intelligence, custom software development, digital customer experience and data.

“The establishment of Capgemini’s new delivery center is a major milestone that will support the continued acceleration of our business in the U.S.,” said Jim Bailey, CEO Americas at Capgemini and Group Executive Board Member. “The Nashville area is rich with diverse talent, an excellent network of local colleges and universities, and strong accessibility. It will provide opportunities for us to further support our current partners and future clients. This investment signals our ongoing commitment to better serving our clients in key markets at every stage of their digital transformation journey.”

“In recent years, Middle Tennessee has far outpaced national technology job growth rates and is expected to continue on this trajectory for years to come,” said Tennessee Governor, Bill Lee . “This region is attracting technology workers from around the country and training a skilled workforce right here in Tennessee. I welcome Capgemini to Tennessee as they create hundreds of new jobs in Nashville.”

This launch builds upon Capgemini’s existing delivery center locations in the U.S., including the Advanced Technology Development Center in Columbia, SC, which opened in 2018 and brought hundreds of jobs to the region, as well as the Software Development Center in Houston, TX, which has also grown in size. U.S. delivery center expansion continues Capgemini’s focus on integrating its global network of development centers to support the increasing need for regional scalability for clients around the world. It’s through these centers that diverse teams of industry-leading innovators develop and implement new technology and digital experiences across the client portfolio. The Nashville delivery center will focus specifically on Capgemini’s capabilities in enterprise application modernization, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and IoT solutions.

This move into the region also aligns with Capgemini’s investments in the future of work by recruiting and developing top talent able to collaborate in a highly connected network. Nashville’s central location, strong technology talent pipeline and high-growth business climate make it immensely attractive for employees and clients.
