Bangalore: The Paris based IT consulting and services firm Capgemini will set up a centre of excellence for its Business Information Management unit (BIM). The centre will employ 1,000 specialists. BIM is a set of services that enable enterprises to manage information. The group plans to hire or redeploy an additional 3,000 BIM consultants, which will take the total number of BIM consultants to over 7,000 across centres globally. This is the first in a series of global strategic portfolio announcements planned over the next two quarters, to mobilize all the group's disciplines, supported by a strong sales push. "We are seeing huge demand for these services and are mobilising our global infrastructure to meet them. To cater to the specific needs of key markets, we also offer sector-specific solutions for clients in banking and insurance, life sciences, energy & utilities, retail and consumer product, and telecoms sector," said Paul Nannetti, General Manager, BIM Service Line, Capgemini. BIM is an important factor for businesses in the current economic climate. A report by AMR Research said companies would spend $59.3 billion on core business intelligence and performance management activities in 2010.
