Mahindra Satyam is expanding its operations in Malaysia by moving more software development and delivery operations to its solution centre in that country, the IT bellwether said Tuesday.
In a regulatory statement, the company said it would enlarge its Global Solution Centre in Kuala Lumpur by moving more global software development and delivery operations there.
The centre is located in Cyberjaya, a prominent information technology corridor in Malaysia.
The state-of-the-art solution centre, which has a 1,100-seat development block and a data centre to host 1,100 servers, will serve as Mahindra Satyam's largest technology development and delivery facility outside India.
At present, the centre has 500 full-time local engineers serving local and global customers.
"Selecting Malaysia to launch our international expansion underscores the faith we continue to have in Malaysia's advanced infrastructure, rich talent pool, and competitive cost environment," Satyam's senior vice-president (Asia Pacific) Rohit Gandhi said.
In June this year, the Hyderabad-based firm, formerly known as Satyam Computer Services, was acquired by Tech Mahindra, the IT services arm of the Mahindra group, after its founder B. Ramalinga Raju confessed to manipulating the company's accounts for several years.
Mahindra Satyam has development and delivery centres in many countries including the US, Canada, Brazil, Britain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and China.
