Governor John Bel Edwards is scheduled to make what his office says is "one of the most significant economic development announcements in Louisiana history".

According to officials, a technology firm will make its way to New Orleans and bring close to 2,000 jobs to the state.

"Companies have to have [IT services] in order to remain competitive and viable in a global economy", said Louisiana Economic Development Secretary Don Pierson.

Edwards said DXC's development joins a long list of other companies that have made big investments in information technology projects in Louisiana, including EA, CenturyLink, IBM, CSRA, CGI, GE Digital and others in the past decade.

"You are witnessing a transformational moment in the history of the city of New Orleans", Landrieu said. The company formed earlier this year as the result of a merger of CSC and the Enterprise Services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprises.

DXC also is expected to take advantage of payroll tax rebates through the Louisiana Quality Jobs Program, which, depending on how many people are hired, could mean up to $57 million to the company over 10 years.

"Our partnership with local colleges and universities will be important to our success and will increase the number of graduates and skilled professionals in technology-related fields in the city and across the region", DXC's chief executive, Mike Lawrie, said in a statement.

"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.
