(Our Bureau, June 3) Bangalore-based Mphasis is planning to bring up to 1,000 new jobs within the next three years in Canada’s Calgary, which will also serve as the IT services major’s country headquarters. “We have made a bet on the ecosystem play. We made a bet on the fact that we’d find a lot of raw talent,” Mphasis CEO Nitin Rakesh told Calgary Herald. Mphasis is likely to set up two centres in Calgary and hire for software development and automation-related roles. The Blackstone-owned, $4.3 billion company has also formed a partnership with the University of Calgary and the provincial government to establish the Quantum City Centre of Excellence, which will serve as a hub for companies pursuing the development of quantum technologies. UCalgary and Mphasis have already started collaborating on developing an AI-driven personalized learning experience that will be commercialized for the global education market. In March, Mphasis’ larger rival Infosys announced it would bring 500 new jobs to Calgary within three years.
