India’s fourth-biggest software exporter Satyam has broken ground on a new technology development centre in eastern China, billed as its largest outside of India. The centre located in a technology park in Nanjing city, about 200 kilometres (125 miles) from Shanghai, will help produce software for its customers in Europe, Japan and the United States, a company statement said Thursday. “Nanjing features large numbers of exceptionally bright technologists and we look forward to bringing them into the Satyam fold,” said Rama Raju, Satyam’s chief executive officer.

 

 

We are confident that our customers will benefit significantly from the work produced in this facility-in the near future and well down the road.” The company gave no investment details of the centre, which will house 2,500 employees, that is expected to open in one year. India has become the world’s back-office as Western firms have set up call centres, number-crunching and software development outlets there but costs are rising and China with its own huge pool of engineers is seen as one solution.

 

 Hyderabad-based Satyam’s China offices have 500 employees, most of them Chinese. The software company has support centers in Beijing, Guangzhou and Dalian. The current expansion will help ease rising costs in India and develop a base of skilled workers. Satyam has expanded its markets beyond the United States and Europe to countries like China, and has plans for a software development center in Malaysia.
