India’s Mphasis along with the Government of Alberta and the University of Calgary have announced a strategic partnership to spur high-quality job creation within the technology sector in Alberta.
The partnership promises to create 500-1,000 new technology jobs in the next 24 months.
Mphasis also announced that they will establish a Quantum City Centre of Excellence (CoE) to strengthen the UCalgary innovation ecosystem. The new hub will be created for companies focused on the commercial development of Quantum technologies.
“We are thrilled that Mphasis selected Calgary as their North American Quantum Computing hub. As we grew our relationship with the Mphasis team over the last several years, Calgary emerged as the natural fit given our extraordinary programming at post secondaries like the University of Calgary,” said Patrick Mattern, Vice President Business Development, Calgary Economic Development.
“Mphasis is known globally for their cloud and cognitive services, and they will help propel Calgary’s growing tech ecosystem to new levels and create hundreds of local jobs.”
