BMW Group and Tata Technologies Ltd., a product engineering and digital services company, have signed an agreement to form a joint venture (JV) to establish an automotive software and IT development hub in Pune, Bengaluru and Chennai.

“In business IT, the emphasis will be on digitalisation and automation of product development, production and sales. From the inception of this JV, 100 trained and experienced Tata Technologies professionals will ensure robust and immediate contributions to software projects. The JV is likely to grow quickly to a four-digit number in the following years,” the companies added.

Warren Harris, CEO and MD, Tata Technologies, said, “Our collaboration with the BMW Group demonstrates our commitment to providing top-tier solutions in automotive software and digital engineering to customers across the world.”
