Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology, and outsourcing services, is taking strides in implementing its ambitious strategy by reinforcing its presence in a new state-of-the-art location, recruiting young dynamic talents and driving digital transformation by partnering with clients as they transition to a digital economy.
Leveraging on the country’s diverse and skilled workforce and the strong support from the Egyptian Government including the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), the newly established Global Delivery Center is increasing its number of skilled employees in order to meet its expanding client needs in Cloud Infrastructure Services, Intelligent Operations, Engineering, Research and Development, as well as Data and Artificial Intelligence.
Eng. Hossam Seifeldin, CEO of Capgemini Egypt, said: “Our mission is to unleash human talent through technology for an inclusive and sustainable future. We are committed to helping our clients drive tangible business impact by harnessing the power of technology. As an attractive hub, we are well placed to deliver strategic, long-term business value to our clients by leveraging Egypt’s geographic location and time zone, its broad community of technology experts, and the robust ICT infrastructure.”
“With Egypt’s impressive pool of talent, we are committed to supporting the Egyptian government's 2030 vision by setting a target to recruit 3000 talented professionals in Egypt over a period of three years. This initiative will be fulfilled through our Global Delivery Center, which will provide opportunities for skilled professionals to work on cutting-edge projects and gain valuable experience in various domains. The country has numerous competitive edges that reinforce its attractiveness as a global offshoring destination.
The team is looking forward to working together with our partners, clients, and the Egyptian government to unlock growth potential in the industry, increasing the Egyptian competitiveness in the ICT sector, and thereby contributing to driving the Egyptian economy forward,” Seifeldin added.
Capgemini’s Global Delivery Center came in acknowledgement of Egypt’s increasing global appeal for investors as an offshoring destination. The graduation rate of IT specialization students in Egypt records 100,000 graduates each year, and over 80% of young professionals are multilingual. According to The Economist’s “normalcy index”, Egypt was ranked the fourth most pandemic-resilient country, solidifying its position as one of the world’s best delivery locations.
Through its network of GDCs, Capgemini provides large organizations with 24/7, multi-lingual business, and transformation services. Egypt is ideally placed in a perfect time zone through which the company can provide its services to clients across Europe and the Middle East.
