An IT company focused on cloud technology is expanding its Adelaide operations, creating dozens of jobs, with help from a state government grant.

PrimeQ says it will establish an innovation centre, 24/7 support hub and graduate program in the city that will create 72 jobs over the next three years.

The South Australian government is supporting the move with a $500,000 grant from its Investment Attraction South Australia agency.

The company was established last year and currently employs 86 people in offices across Australia and New Zealand, including Adelaide.

PrimeQ chief executive Andrew McAdams says the new Adelaide projects will help the company find more global clients and provide better services to them.

It will also support SA's growing reputation for digital industries, he says.

"I want my own children to have technology career opportunities here in South Australia," he said in a statement.

Investment Minister Martin Hamilton-Smith says the new graduate program will be "particularly exciting".

"It represents a rare pathway for students to advance to senior ranks in highly skilled careers here," he said in a statement.

In its first year, PrimeQ's customers have included Heinz, Pacific Brands, Parliament of Victoria and the Queensland University of Technology.
