DXC selected New Orleans out of at least 30 USA cities as the site of its new Digital Transformation Center based on technology ecosystem, commitment to IT workforce development, local economic strength and population diversity, among other criteria. Rebecca Conwell, economic adviser for the Landrieu administration, said local universities have agreed to create course loads specific to the training needed for DXC's new hires.

The announcement will be made at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome at 2 p.m. Officials there said Louisiana beat out 30 other states for the chance to host a "digital transformation center" — where the company will provide services to help clients adapt to rapidly changing digital technology.

To secure the project, the state offered the company a competitive incentive package with $18.7 million in performance-based grants payable over five years.

Governor John Bel Edwards is scheduled to make what his office says is "one of the most significant economic development announcements in Louisiana history". Hilton said the facility planned for New Orleans will be the largest digital transformation center it has built.

DXC also is expected to take advantage of payroll tax rebates through the Louisiana Quality Jobs Program, which, depending on how many people are hired, could mean up to $57 million to the company over 10 years.

DXC is a publicly traded information technology company created past year, after acquiring parts the Enterprise Services segment of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

DXC said its centre will focus on the development, delivery and ongoing support of next-generation digital services and products including applications, cloud computing, cybersecurity, data analytics, and intelligent automation that serve the company's global clients.
