Infosys said on Thursday it will open its next technology and innovation hub in Hartford, Connecticut, and hire 1,000 American workers by 2022.

The Connecticut Technology and Innovation Hub will have a special focus on insurance, healthcare and manufacturing.

It will bring Infosys closer to its Connecticut clients and serve as the global hub for Infosys' InsurTech and HealthTech efforts.

Infosys' investment in Connecticut is a continuation of the company's commitment to accelerate innovation for American enterprise by amplifying top local talent with the best global talent and shrink the IT skills gap in the marketplace.

''This investment will further strengthen our ability to serve clients' needs throughout the New England region and expand the local workforce to help our clients compete in the rapidly digitising insurance, healthcare and manufacturing sectors. Hartford's position as the Insurance Capital of the World, paired with Connecticut's world-renowned academic institutions, will place Infosys in close proximity to valued clients and accelerate the recruitment of highly-skilled local talent,'' said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys.

The Hub will include insurance and healthcare labs that focus on smart underwriting, claims fraud, Internet of Things and Cloud, and will employ cutting-edge data security and data-sharing features to help Infosys clients comply with all applicable privacy laws while promoting innovation. Infosys will also leverage the Hub to train its employees and develop pioneering techniques with agile, development operations, cloud and information security projects.

''Connecticut is a hub for health care innovation, and these capabilities are a key part of Cigna's global growth strategy,'' said Mark Boxer, EVP and Global Chief Information Officer at Cigna.

''We are pleased that Infosys has chosen to plant a flag here in Connecticut, and proud that we had a role in advancing employment in the region. We look forward to working with them as part of our technology journey,'' he added.

Infosys inaugurated its first Technology and Innovation Hub in Indianapolis, Indiana and has already announced a Technology and Innovation Hub in Raleigh, North Carolina and a Design and Innovation Hub in Providence, Rhode Island.
