Thousands of jobs will be added to New Orleans’ workforce as part of an expansion billed as “one of the most significant economic development announcements” in Louisiana history.

Gov. John Bel Edwards was joined by city and state leaders Monday afternoon to unveil plans by DXC Technology to open a digital transformation center in the Crescent City.

The Governor’s office said the project will create more permanent direct jobs at one site than any prior economic deal in Louisiana. With the DXC deal, state leaders said Louisiana is one of the country’s fastest growing software and informational technology destinations.

DXC Technology, with revenues of more than $25 billion, was created in 2016 with the merger of CSC and the Enterprise Services segment of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise.

Here’s the plan by DXC in Louisiana: The company will pursue a highly integrated model of higher education workforce solutions to prepare talent for its digital transformation center in New Orleans. The center will house next-generation technology services that support its clients’ digital transformations.
