Information technology firm Tech Mahindra, in partnership with the Telangana government, inaugurated a delivery centre in Warangal on Tuesday. 

The facility is in line with Tech Mahindra’s TechMNxt programme, which focuses on technologies such as AI (artificial intelligence), blockchain, cybersecurity and IoT (internet of things) solutions to deliver solutions to meet the customer requirement.

“Tech Mahindra’s collaboration with the government of Telangana to open up a new delivery centre in Warangal is a step towards enabling the workforce in the tier-2 cities to collaborate and co-create smart and sustainable solutions for the future by leveraging next-generation technologies,” CP Gurnani, MD and CEO of Tech Mahindra, said in a statement.

“The opening of Tech Mahindra’s Warangal campus is an important step in our consistent efforts to digitally transform Warangal and other tier-2 cities within the state by riding high on the immense potential of our people and by leveraging new-age technologies like AI and blockchain,” KT Rama Rao, Telangana’s IT and Industries minister, said.

Last month, Tech Mahindra had won a contract worth Rs 500 crore to build a smart city project from the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation. 

In November, the company had announced the acquisition of New York-headquartered digital media agency Born Group in an all cash deal for $95 million. The same month, Tech Mahindra also tied up with a Finland government entity for research and development in 5G and 6G technology and with an Israel-based startup Atidot to provide AI-focused solutions to insurance companies. Tech Mahindra also inked a deal with the College of Engineering and Technology Bhubaneswar to set up an AI-focused centre of excellence.
