A technology firm will soon be headquartered in New Orleans with "good paying jobs in the $70,000 range", WAFB Capitol Correspondent Kevin Frey reported Monday morning.

DXC is a publicly traded information technology company created past year, after acquiring parts the Enterprise Services segment of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

"You are witnessing a transformational moment in the history of the city of New Orleans", Landrieu said. Officials there said Louisiana beat out 30 other states for the chance to host a "digital transformation center" - where the company will provide services to help clients adapt to rapidly changing digital technology.

"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. Edwards said the project will bring 2,000 jobs to the city over five years.

The move could eventually create up to 2000 permanent high tech positions in downtown New Orleans.

The company was created earlier this year when Hewlett Packard Enterprise completed the spinoff of its Enterprise Services business, which merged with Computer Sciences Corporation. "DXC Technology could not have made a better selection than to choose New Orleans for their Digital Transformation Center, and we embrace the challenge of preparing our best and brightest students for this remarkable opportunity".
