Infosys, a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, on Wednesday through an exchange filing announced a new Proximity Centre in Oslo, Norway as part of its continued expansion plan in the Nordics. The new state of the art centre will enable Infosys to attract, re-skill, and upskill local talent to work on global opportunities through next-gen technologies like cloud, AI, IoT, 5G, and software engineering.
Over the last few years, Infosys has invested and expanded its footprint in the Nordic region with fresh partnerships including the one with Lefdal Mine Datacenter in Norway, strategic acquisitions such as Fluido in Finland and BASE Life Science in Denmark, as well as opening a new proximity centre in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The new Oslo proximity centre will enable Infosys to partner, and work even more closely with its regional customers including Telenor, one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies and DNB ASA, the largest bank in Norway, helping both organisations build and strengthen next-gen solutions and advance their digital transformation journeys.
Maria Ervik Løvold, Group Executive Vice President of Technology and Services (CIO), DNB ASA, said, “Infosys has been our strategic services partner for over 8 years, and we are very glad to see them expanding their presence in Norway. This shows their commitment to their localization agenda and bringing next generation digital technology skills to the Norwegian Market.

We congratulate Infosys with their new office in Norway, an expansion that will provide a strong foundation for the collaboration between our two organisations. We look forward to continuing our digital transformation journey in partnership with Infosys.”
