Microland, India’s leading digital IT transformation company, inaugurated its state-of-the-art Digital Hub in Birmingham, UK to serve its European customers.
The Bourneville-based facility will become the firm’s European Shared Services Headquarters, and when fully operational is expected to accommodate up to 200 Microlanders.
It enables the consolidation of Microland’s UK and European delivery functions as part of its ambitious, global growth strategy, with the West Midlands at its heart.
The primary objective of the site is to support Microland’s international client base with services that enable ‘Making Digital Happen.’ The range of services delivered through the Hub will include cloud and data center transformation, Software Defined Networks, cybersecurity, digital workplace, and Industrial IoT.
This is Microland’s second Digital Hub in the West Midlands; the first opened in January 2018. The new site will operate alongside Microland’s existing base in Longbridge, which will transition into a Customer Experience Centre that will offer Microland’s customers a differentiated global delivery model.
Pradeep Kar, Founder, Chairman, and Managing Director, Microland, said:
“Our West Midlands Digital Hub is an exciting new addition to Microland’s network of hubs around the world and an important milestone for our European business. The center will deliver innovative and modern enterprise solutions to our global customer base, with a specific focus on UK customers.
“When assessing several locations for Microland’s expansion, the West Midlands was an obvious choice for us. The area has become an epicenter for technology, with a vibrant ecosystem of major companies, access to technically skilled, digital talent and world-class infrastructure. This is essential for us in order to meet the ever-growing demands of our global customers.”
Microland’s investment will create employment opportunities in both the technology and business operations fields, as the firm seeks to capitalize on the region’s wider professional services skills base.
The site has opened as the region looks to establish a dedicated West Midlands India Partnership – a program operated by the West Midlands Growth Company* to build on the area’s successful track record in attracting investment and visitors from the Indian market.
