CHENNAI: IBM India Pvt. Ltd. has expanded its operations in Chennai with the inauguration of its new global delivery centre. It will be the sixth such centre in India. The facility is spread across 2.95 lakh sq. ft. at the DLF Park at Manapakkam in Chennai.
Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Shanker Annaswamy, Managing Director, said the company already had two centres in Chennai.
The new centre was an integral part of IBM’s global delivery network, spread across three dozen countries around the world. Initially, it would employ 100 persons and depending on customer utilisation of the centre’s services, the new facility could eventually employ 2,500 people, across application and IT infrastructure services.
Mr. Annswamy said India and China would soon emerge as the two largest global delivery centres in the world. He said the new centre and the team in Chennai would enable IBM to accelerate the development of innovative technology solutions for its clients across the globe. It would ramp up its operations in Chennai by hiring technology graduates and IT professionals with skills in remote infrastructure services, IT strategy and architecture, business consulting, enterprise solutions (SAP, Siebel and Oracle), testing, business intelligence and data warehousing.
The Chennai facility, he said, would also be the first centre in India for IBM to offer IT infrastructure services such as server consolidation, middleware services and site and facilities services.
Mr. Annaswamy said IBM was contemplating to expand its operations into Tier-2 cities in Tamil Nadu.
Already, Coimbatore has a sales office and there was scope for starting delivery operations there.
The Union Minister for Communications and Information Technology, A. Raja, who inaugurated the centre, said the expansion of the facility in Chennai would benefit both the State and the company.
