Correct. The technology or “nerve centers” in U.K., India, NC are focused on multiple objectives.

  1. Exit Webster campus except toner plant

  2. Ease difficulty in hiring volumes of skilled IT in Upstate NY

  3. Shift XIM to XDX vision where what is delivered moves from internal processing support to customer facing and revenue generation. Old XIM capabilities provided by Wipro.

There are multiple problems with this strategy and stating them here only enables some current Xerox employees to point them out. That sounds like helping ot the company that has ended many careers and I’m not going to do that.

XIG (Xerox Innovation Group) consisted of:

XRCE (Xerox Research Center Europe) was sold to Naver in 2017.

XRCW (Webster) which was closed

XRCI (India) went to Conduent

XRCC (Canada) still exists today as a research center for Xerox.

PARC stil exists today.

I think the 3 "technology centers" in UK, NC & India refer to IT, not R&D.

Both buildings (128 and 147) in Webster are closed now.

XRCW, the research center in Webster (Bldg 128/147) effectively went away several years ago when the 50 or so remaining employees were moved to Conduent. Much of the printing innovation was coming from XRCC.

Not sure what's going on now.

It appears to still be staffed and functional

Before the end of 2017, I believe Xerox's primary research centers were:

1) USA - Webster NY, which is focused on printing

2) USA - Palo Alto CA, PARC, which is focused on IT R but, no action has yet been taken. So what is now going to Raleigh and India? I can't see too many roles moving to the due to the high wages there.

It would make sense if the three technology centers are going to be in the UK, Raleigh NC and India. It may be on the chopping block along with Webster, just don’t ask the question at the next JohnV or NareshS meeting or you could lose your job.

Sinking ship called “Xerox” just took another tremendous blow to the hull. I’m sure another hit is eminent on its current course.
