According to The Australian Financial Review, technology consulting giant Infosys will invests "tens of millions" in three new innovation hubs, promising 1200 new jobs by 2020, but the states will fight to host them.
The hubs will be "co-creation" centres for government, business and universities to work with Infosys on digital transformation, said Andrew Groth, boss of the India-founded multinational's 4500 staff across Australia and New Zealand.
About 40 per cent of the new hires will be Australian university graduates, from fields including computer science and design.
"The Australian Computer Society released a report in June which found Australia would need 200,000 technology workers over the next five years, but that we're still less than 5000 local graduates from degrees in information and communication technology degrees each year," Mr Groth said.
