Delivery Centers-Delivery Centers are specialized, dedicated facilities where solutions professionals from different areas of our company work together to design and deliver advanced technology solutions for our clients. In a Delivery Centre, our people are part of a larger team that collaborates to quickly and efficiently respond to new challenges.
