Enterprise Times: What this means for business.

Infor joins a growing list of technology companies opening centres of excellence, development centres or technology institutes in the country. Hyderabad appears to be the  preferred IT hub for technology companies on the backbone of a thriving environment for the local talent pool. Inevitably, the Indian local government in Telangana welcomes the investment and expected to drive growth opportunities for region. Furthermore, Infor’s development centre will provide a platform for local talent to hone their technical skills. Something much welcomed during a time of skills shortages across the breadth of technology.
