Shell India Markets, a lubricants and LNG company, will set up an in-house global information technology center in Bangalore, India.
The proposed IT center, which will be operational later this year, will form a main part of Shell’s global IT project delivery and support network. The strategy of Shell is to ensure in-house IT capability to deliver operations support.
Yasmine Hilton, chairman of Shell Companies in India, said: “We aim to attract the best talent in the industry and provide opportunities for them to build business solutions.”
The IT center will provide services to Shell’s businesses – Upstream, Downstream and Projects & Technology – as well as associated support functions.
Shell already has a Projects and Technology Center in Bangalore, employing over 1,000 scientists and engineers, which is part of its Projects & Technology business. In 2016, STCB will move to a purpose-built, dedicated campus, spread over 52 acres near Devanahalli, close to Bangalore International Airport.
Shell also has a Business Operations Centre based in Chennai, where over 2,000 employees provide business and financial support to Shell companies worldwide.
