Novell opens India Development Center in Bangalore
Giving a new thrust to Novell's 14 years of commitment to India, the company opened its largest engineering facility outside the U.S. recently in Bangalore. The new India Development Center (IDC) at Bagmane Tech Park delivers interoperable Linux platform and integrated IT management software. The company will invest about $100 million in the country in the next three years.

The new facility with a capacity to house 700 employees will support the company's global engineering initiatives with responsibilities for several products and technologies, including SUSE Linux enterprises, ZENworks, identity and access management solutions, and Novell's Open Enterprise Server. Though the company has key technical talent in the U.S., Canada, Germany, Mexico, and the Czech Republic, the IDC represents Novell's largest concentration of technical talent outside the U.S.
