Microsoft Corporation, an American global technology company that makes computer software, personal computers, and associated services, will launch its first African Development Centre (ADC) in Lagos.
Software engineering solutions are intended to be delivered to Africa from the facility, which represents a $100 million investment by the multibillion-dollar corporation.
On March 21, 2022, the Personal Assistant to Nigeria’s President on Digital and New Media, Bashir Ahmed, tweeted this information on his official Twitter account.
The hub, which has been built in tandem with one in Nairobi, Kenya, will be the first in Africa and is yet another indicator of Africa’s rising prominence as a global talent center.
What the President’s Digital and New Media Adviser has to say
“The Microsoft, an American global technology business that manufactures computer software, personal computers, and associated services, launches its first African Development Centre (ADC) in Lagos, Nigeria,” writes Bashir Ahmed in a tweet.
During the May 2019 introduction of this centre, Microsoft Corporate Vice President Michael Fortin stated that the company’s goal is to recruit excellent technical talent and give opportunities to work on cutting-edge technologies fit for Kenya, Nigeria, and the rest of the globe.
Engineers may enjoy important work from their home nations while remaining connected to a worldwide engineering and development organization, he added.
In May of 2019, Microsoft announced the opening of its first Africa Development Centre in Nigeria. The centre, Microsoft’s seventh worldwide, was anticipated to attract top-tier African technical talent to build cutting-edge solutions that span the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge.
Increased Microsoft presence in Africa will enable partners and consumers as they leverage Microsoft technologies in key African industries such as FinTech, AgriTech, and OffGrid energy.
Microsoft is looking for artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and mixed reality engineers for the ADC.
