Making Hartford a destination for the companies of the future

Today, I was joined by Gov. Dannel Malloy and Gov.-elect Ned Lamont to inaugurate Infosys’ Hartford Technology and Innovation Hub. The Hub will help Infosys work more closely with its clients in the region and serve as the global center for Infosys’ InsurTech and HealthTech efforts. However, none of that would have been possible without the leadership of Gov. Malloy, Gov.-elect Lamont and our business and education partners in the great State of Connecticut.

Investing in Connecticut’s digital economy

My first four months with Infosys have been a whirlwind. Working closely with my colleagues, we’ve designed a uniquely local enterprise. We assessed what the local job market looked like, what state and local officials were trying to accomplish in the economy, how the school systems were working to educate their students in technology skills, and we’ve worked to build a local presence to help address the area’s technology needs. We’re forming partnerships with local state and community colleges, meeting with the superintendents of local school districts and helping to change the skeptical narrative about the market for IT jobs in Connecticut.

Opportunity is knocking, but are legislators listening?

Gov.- elect Ned Lamont and the incoming state legislature will face a bleak financial landscape as they work together to craft Connecticut’s budget for the next two fiscal years. Put bluntly, there are two ways to deal with our state’s severe fiscal shortfall: start making structural changes now to the way the state collects and spends money or use the “Rainy Day Fund” to kick the can down the road. We hope they will choose the more difficult path and tackle the systemic issues that have caused and exacerbate the problems we face.
