3i Infotech, a global IT company headquartered in Mumbai, opened its first Oracle applications development centre of excellence in Tirunelveli to diversify its talent pool and address the industry’s skill gap.
In the cloud, cybersecurity, automation, and other technologies, the company is launching the centre with 100 members and wants to expand it to more than 1,000.
The facility is set up by hiring and training fresh graduates from engineering, arts, and science colleges in and around the Tirunelveli, Tuticorin, and Kanyakumari districts Tirunelveli’s “Tiliconveli Tech Park” in collaboration with Mikro Grafeio Services, 3i Infotech’s infra partner.
The new CoE, known as “NuRe Park Tirunelveli,” is the first of a hub & spoke network that 3i Infotech wants to introduce in tier-3 towns and regions throughout India and around the world. With numerous prospective NuRe Park CoEs concentrating on different areas and technologies, the business hopes to produce job prospects comparable to those in tier 1 cities.
The Oracle CoE for cloud, cybersecurity, applications, automation, and analytics will be housed in NuRe Park Tirunelveli. The graduates will get specialized Oracle certification training and real-time industry experience from Oracle University.
“We want to build an ecosystem within these tier-3 cities that are on a par, if not better, with those available in the Tier-1 cities and provide the local talent with all the facilities, knowhow and opportunities for them to excel and be industry-ready…In the long-term, we will look to replicate this Tirunelveli model in the US, Europe and the rest of the world,” Thompson Gnanam, managing director & Global CEO of 3i Infotech, said.
