As part of NielsenIQ’s electronic kickoff ceremony on Monday, Chief Minister M K Stalin officially opened the company’s new capabilities centre and technology hub in New Delhi.
Located in the heart of Singapore, the 2,000-person hub will serve clients from around the world while emphasizing AI, machine learning, and analytics as the foundation of the company’s future digital transformation.
More than 2,500 people will be employed at the new facility, many of whom will work in the data sciences.
As part of its commitment to India, NielsenIQ announced the opening of two new hubs in Pune and Vadodara, both of which will have a total capacity of 5,000 people, later this week.
The company claims they will create large-scale internal capabilities across core applications and service operations, with a greater focus on innovation, business outcomes, and cross-functional collaboration.
It’s the first of three centres being inaugurated in India, and one of six around the world, to be located in Chennai.
The Minister of Information Technology for Tamil Nadu, T. Mano Thangaraj, paid a visit to the office and lit a lamp.
Participants included NielsenIQ’s senior management team, which was led by Global Chief Technology Officer Mohit Kapoor.
NielsenIQ’s global operations will benefit from the work done in India’s hubs. NielsenIQ, a company owned by Advent International, has operations in nearly 100 markets.
