Another 1.1 Billion For India

Posted on Thursday, Aug 3rd 2006

After IBM, Microsoft, Cisco, Intel and AMD, SAP joins their ranks as the sixth major company to commit over 1 Billion in investment capital to India.

SAP will increase the India headcount from 2,750 to 4,000 by this year and to 8,000 by 2011. They just opened a second R&D center in Gurgaon, the first being in Bangalore. So far, SAP has invested $500 Million in India.

With close to $15 Billion being funneled into India by large technology giants, not to mention the expansion of India’s own Wipro, Infosys, Tata, et. al., in the next 5 years, I expect all the major metros in India can become thriving technology centers.
