The Nissan Digital Hub will be the first of a number of software and information technology development centres in Asia, Europe and North America, which will comprehensively transform the company's business by placing digital technology at the heart of key operations and services.
"The hub will allow Nissan to provide best-in-class user experiences, product development capabilities, security and connectivity as the automotive industry evolves, with growing use of autonomous, connected and electric vehicle technology," a release said.
The first centre will initially be in Technopark – a technology park owned by the state government in Thiruvananthapuram – before moving to a permanent location in the city. Once fully operational, it will provide a range of in-house services to strengthen Nissan’s digital capabilities in India and other global markets.
Peyman Kargar, Chairman of Nissan’s Africa, Middle East and India region, said, “The creation of Nissan’s first global digital hub in India reflects our commitment to this growing market and our belief in investing in India for the long term. Harnessing the skills and talents of the workforce in India is another way that Nissan is working to capture the full potential of the region.”
