Bangalore: IT major 3i Infotech unveiled its first Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Oracle applications development in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu.

3i Infotech’s new CoE named NuRe Park Tirunelveli is located at Tiliconveli Tech Park in the Tirunelveli district. And it has been set up in partnership with Mikro Grafeio Services.

The new facility will house the Oracle CoE across cloud, cybersecurity, application, automation and analytics. It aims to address the huge skill shortage faced within the industry and will help in building the talent ecosystem in Tier-3 cities, without the need for these local talents to relocate.

Mikro Grafeio Services is a workspace and workforce solution company. It will manage talent acquisition by hiring and training fresh graduates from Tirunelveli, Tuticorin and Kanyakumari districts of Tamil Nadu. 3i Infotech will be a client of similar companies.

3i Infotech plans to further expand its operations in India and abroad with this model in place. It has also initiated an employee engagement program for a hybrid workforce and a women’s talent recognition program to foster a diverse work culture.

The company has developed an employability ecosystem integrating hiring and training partners, colleges and skill providers, government departments and IT infra providers.

Through their CoE internship and CoE talent incubator program, 3i Infotech aims to bring in industry-ready and right-skilled talent at scale through closer collaboration between academia and corporate organisations.

According to Thompson Gnanam, MD and Global CEO, 3i Infotech, this is a major milestone in 3i Infotech’s journey of becoming a $1 billion organisation by 2030.

“We want to build an ecosystem within these Tier-3 cities that are on par, if not better than those available in the Tier-1 cities and provide the local talent with all the facilities, know-how and opportunities for them to excel and be industry-ready,” said Gnanam

“We are excited to launch our first Tirunelveli campus connect incubator, which will serve as a pioneering centre and a model for CoE Hub & Spoke. In the long term, we will look to replicate this Tirunelveli model in US, Europe, and the rest of the world,” informed Gnanam.

The upcoming NuRe Park CoEs will focus on multiple domains and technologies. For instance, IT major 3i Infotech has a CoE and lab setup in collaboration with a leading research park in India focused on 5G and cognitive computing.

It is also investing in insurance CoE to offer an end-to-end solution on the cloud platform and will also build CoEs for Credit Union, Mortgage and Capital Markets.
