Besides, the centre will house a Design Thinking and Innovation lab where Infosys customers across the Nordic region will have access to disruptive tools and technologies to help transform their businesses.

Antti Koskelin, Senior Vice-President and CIO at KONE Corporation, said digitising the company's business has been a strategic imperative for KONE globally and developing the IT function was an integral part of its business transformation.

"Our transformation and service improvement road map will reduce systems-related disruptions to KONE's global businesses, achieve a cost reset, and finally, embark on a simplification and modernisation journey to future-proof KONE's IT investments in the ERP space," Nitesh Banga, Senior Vice-President and Global Head of Manufacturing at Infosys, said.
