As part of its strategic commitment to promote innovation and IT infrastructure transformation in the automotive sector, Infosys Ltd opened an automotive digital technology and innovation center in Stuttgart, Germany, on Tuesday.

Infosys will use the new center to help Daimler AG, a renowned German automobile business, expand its IT and data center infrastructure. Last year, Daimler awarded Infosys its largest contract to date, valued at $3 billion and lasting up to eight years.

As part of this partnership, automotive IT infrastructure experts based in Germany will transition from Daimler AG to the new digital technology and innovation center.

The center is expected to provide its customers with the necessary tools to meet the country’s growing demand for electric vehicles.

Infosys aims to create a gold standard for Germany’s automotive and manufacturing companies to accelerate and standardize technology adoption. “It will provide training and innovation labs and focus on industry transformation, including the infrastructure required to design future and advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, automation and electrification," Infosys said.

Infosys said the center will also adhere to its commitment towards sustainability, leveraging resources such as a data center operating on 100% renewable energy and zero water consumption.

The center promotes a multi-cloud and carbon-neutral approach to IT infrastructure transformation, leveraging Infosys Cobalt, a combination of Infosys services, solutions and platforms that supports enterprises in accelerating their cloud journey.

“By bringing together the formidable skills and expertise across Germany, this center will support Daimler in its hybrid multi-cloud and AI-driven digital transformation journey to scalability. It will also provide a cloud architecture blueprint for other German manufacturers to emulate as they move through a period of resilient IT transformation," said Salil Parekh, chief executive officer, Infosys.

Infosys will help Daimler in taking three simultaneous steps to transform its IT landscape: consolidation, scaling and modernization, said Jan Brecht, chief information officer, Daimler and Mercedes-Benz. “The center will also set new standards for cloud and infrastructure services in the automotive industry."
