Northeast Utilities in Connecticut Tuesday confirmed that it plans to turn over part of its IT operations to two India-based outsourcing firms, despite a recent push by state lawmakers to keep it from doing so.
NU says it employs some 400 IT workers, and “will retain about half of those employees” after turning some operations over to outsourcers Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services, two of India’s largest IT firms.
Today’s announcement makes official what had already been suspected — the company had told its IT workers weeks ago that it was considering outsourcing tech work.
The utility, which operates New England’s largest energy delivery system, today said it is “working with strategic business partners to help conduct the rest of the work – the majority of which will still be conducted locally.”
