First phase of global delivery campus becomes operational

Satyam Computer Services announced on Monday that its 500-seat global solutions center (GSC) in Malaysia is fully operational. It is the first phase of the Satyam’s global delivery campus in Malaysia. The GSC was inaugurated by Malaysia’s Second Minister of Finance and YB Senator, Tan Sri Nor Mohmad Yakcop, Deputy Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation YB, Dato’ Kong Cho Ha, and Satyam’s founder chairman, B. Ramalinga Raju. This was the largest facility of the company outside India.

The GSC had already engaged 300 IT engineers, mostly Malaysians, to support the company’s ASEAN, Middle Eastern, and American customers. Satyam’s progress with its GSC would accelerate consolidation of its ‘Global Delivery Model 2.0’, an integral part of the company’s strategy to provide a distributed delivery capability for global customers. The GDM 2.0 would entail completion of parts of large-scale projects whether it would make the most business sense, rather than having an entire programme take place in a single facility, said a company release.

The facility would be integrated with other Satyam GSC’s across the globe, and serve as a major software development center. It was expected to create more than 500 jobs for Malaysian graduates over the next 12 months. “We consider this facility to be a significant part of Satyam’s commitment to multidimensional investments in Malaysia, an excellent alternative to India for solution development,” said Mr. Raju. “We plan to make Malaysia our largest software development hub outside of India over the next few years,” added Virendrer Aggarwal, Senior Vice-President of the company’s Asia-Pacific, Middle East, India, and Africa.
