The European Center will serve as a software hub for clients in Romania and across the world
Bucharest, May 4, 2017. Deloitte has announced today the opening of the European Regional Delivery Center in Bucharest. Operating under Deloitte Tehnologie, the center is part of the firm’s strategic investments meant to apply leading technology to serve clients across businesses and regions.
The European Regional Delivery Center, which already employs more than 100 IT consultants, is an investment from Deloitte showing Romania’s strong IT potential and in the company’s overall strategy, in an environment in which technology plays an essential role. The center will create up to 800 jobs by 2020.
“Choosing Bucharest as the location for Deloitte’s technology centre is a recognition of the talented IT resources the country has and of the dynamics of the local IT market. I am confident the European Regional Delivery Center will become a reference center worldwide and will provide Romanian IT talents the opportunity to expand their skills by being involved in major international projects,” said Satya Swaroop Roddam, managing director Deloitte Tehnologie.
The European Regional Delivery Center will supply services based on SAP, Analytics/Information Management (AIM), and Digital technologies to Deloitte clients in Romania as well as in major European markets such as England and Germany, providing software applications and services to 75% of Fortune 100 companies.
Ahmed Hassan, country managing partner Deloitte Romania added: “At the firm’s 25th anniversary in Romania I am happy that we are able to bring new business lines thus positioning ourselves closer to our aspiration of leaders in digital transformation strategy in our response to ever changing client demands.”
Besides contributing to workforce employment by hiring at least 650 IT specialists, Deloitte’s European Regional Delivery Center will also contribute to the development of the local talents, by engaging the center’s employees in key global projects of Deloitte, and assuring know-how transfer with the highly-experienced staff from the technology centers Deloitte operates worldwide.
The new team adds up to the more than 600 already existing people Deloitte has in Romania.
The European Regional Delivery Center in Bucharest joins the other three technology centers Deloitte has already implemented worldwide: Hyderabad (India), Belfast (Northern Ireland), Orlando (USA), with technology being a main pillar for Deloitte’s growth around the world.
