Delhi, New Delhi, India, 2006/12/06 - IBM will set up two new IT solution centers in China and India, thereby, underscoring the growing importance of Asian countries as a center of outsourcing activities..
IBM – the largest computer services company in world – plans to launch two new IT solution centers in China and India, underscoring the growing importance of Asian countries as an outsourcing hub.
Each of these centers will employ about 500 developers, whose main focus will be to create service-oriented architecture (SOA) for consumers across the globe (including those in the US). SOA’s feature standard based software components allow easy connectivity and reusability of various business applications & services. IBM expects that SOA based services will reach US$ 160 Billion by the year 2008. However, the company hasn’t declared how much investment it’s making in these two facilities.
The proclamation marks the most recent steps in IBM’s plans for centralizing software development activities in economical regions stuffed with talent. The company’s operations in China are comparatively smaller than in India. IBM service staff in China, currently, comprises 7,000 employees and above 40,000 employees in India. However, the company sees good growth in China.
This further exhibits the commitment of the company to Asian market where it’s expanding its operations at full tilt. The new centers will likely be set up in Beijing (China) and Pune (India).
As per a Research Analyst’s view at RNCOS, who has recently researched a report on “Opportunities in Chinese Software Industry (2007)”, the accelerated growth of the software in Indian and Chinese markets leads the US firms to put their money in Asian software Industry.
