Putting the southern state of Tamil Nadu on the technology map of India, global information services company NielsenIQ opened its new technology hub in Chennai for global operations.
The Nielsen IQ's new capability centre and technology hub was virtually inaugurated by Chief Minister M K Stalin. The 2,000-seater hub is the largest centre for NielsenIQ across the globe that will cater to a global clientele and focus on digital transformation with artificial intelligence, machine learning and analytics at the core, a company said.
The new centre would provide job opportunities to 2,500 people in areas including data sciences, a state government release said. Reiterating its commitment to India, NielsenIQ said it would open two more hubs, in Pune and Vadodara later this week and the three hubs together would create a 5,000-plus capacity.
