Bangalore-based Infosys Technologies plans to set up software development centres worldwide to link its overseas operations and tap talent across the globe.
The Indian giant's new strategic global plan involves setting up such centres in the US, Europe and Japan to bring its software development services to the doorsteps of its customers. At present, the company has six sales offices in the US, and one each in Japan, the Netherlands and the UK. It has also a fully owned subsidiary, Yantra Corporation, in Boston, US.
The move to set up software development centres overseas will enable the company to achieve higher efficiency in its operations. This is part of a move to decentralise the companyh and reduce hierarchy. The company plans to remove the power of the headquarters even in India. "We want to empower our people at various centres and move where talent is," said Narayana Murthy, chairman and managing director.
