Wipro to open a development center in Atlanta

Posted by Sankar on August 28, 2007


Wipro Technologies is planning to open a development center in Atlanta and plans to hire 200 people to work at this center. It also plans to increase this number to 500 over the next three years. This is interesting because of the fact most companies shift the jobs to Asia to lower costs and Wipro is doing the opposite and this is what they have to say.

“The work we’re doing requires more and more knowledge of the customers’ businesses, and you want local people to do that,” said P.R Chandrasekar, President, Wipro Technologies Ltd. “The Atlanta center is an investment that will help Wipro’s existing customers as well as help address new business opportunities.”

Most Indian software companies already hire people out here, but those are for specific projects. I am not sure if any company has a dedicated development center here in the US. We will have to wait and see how this model works out for Wipro.
