Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell and Executive Vice President Jim Smith of DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC) joined guests and employees in dedicating the company’s New Orleans Digital Transformation Center at the newly named DXC Technology Building on 1615 Poydras Street. In November, DXC Technology announced it will create 2,000 new direct jobs in New Orleans over the next five years in what will become Louisiana’s largest technology-focused economic development project to date.
In the current competition to land a new Amazon second North American headquarters, Louisiana pulled out all stops. It would have been quite a coup for a Louisiana location to land this big prize with some 50,000 new jobs to the winner. But from the beginning, the Bayou State never had a chance.
Looking for a job in the technology industry, here in New Orleans? Want more information about what DXC Technology has to offer for business opportunities? Or, want to just get information about what this company is doing in New Orleans?
Congratulations to GNO, Inc. and Louisiana Economic Development for being awarded the Silver Medal from Business Facilities magazine for the #2 "Deal of the Year" in America for 2017.
The award was given for DXC Technology’s commitment to establish a Digital Transformation Center in New Orleans, an initiative that will create 2,000+ jobs in the global IT and business enterprise sector.
Today is one of those moments in which you feel a strong sense of accomplishment, even when simply observing.
New Orleans, has made strong advances in the area of technology over the years. This is largely due to numerous companies taking advantage of the Digital Media Tax Credits to help tech-based enterprises grow their respective businesses. At the beginning of this decade, GE Capitol opened up a large headquarters in the city which put a large skin on the wall to promote. Today, the city and the State of Louisiana announced they landed a really big one, DXC Technology, a multi-billion international enterprise that is one of the largest companies in the world.
