HCL Technologies will open a delivery centre in Stavanger, Norway, to service Statoil, in line with its model of Global Centres of Excellence.
"For large global enterprises, HCL is increasingly seen as a strategic IT partner with the ability to scale globally distributed IT operations in a non-linear fashion while gaining flexibility and operational rigour," HCL Technologies President (Infrastructure Services) and Senior Corporate Vice-President Anant Gupta said.
