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

Edwards said in a press release that the project will create more permanent direct jobs at one site than any prior economic development deal in Louisiana. The company says it serves almost 6,000 private and public sector clients in 70 countries and employs 155,000 people.

The company expects the center's operations to begin in January. The Louisiana State University System, University of Louisiana System and the Louisiana Community and Technical College System will guide the initiative primarily through four lead campuses: LSU in Baton Rouge, the University of New Orleans, Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, and Delgado Community College in New Orleans.

"It will be a blueprint, I believe, of how we transform DXC's workforce and how we embrace some of the new technologies", Hilton said. "DXC's selection of New Orleans represents the rarest and most promising economic development win that Louisiana or any state could hope for". Mayor Mitch Landrieu called it a "game changer" and "a transformational moment" for the city in advance of its 300th anniversary, with the company's decision signaling a flag-planting moment for the city and large investors, that there's "no way city will ever be turned around again".

A "vast majority" of the jobs will be new positions added to the company's payroll, DXC spokesperson Rich Adamonis said in an email. Greater New Orleans Inc.'s Michael Hecht said the arrival of DXC "emphatically validates New Orleans as a place for business and tech".

DXC is hiring now for the project.

The state economic development agency said incentives to land the company included almost $19 million in grants payable over five years.
