HYDERABAD: The City based SSA Global is in the process of consolidating its India operations and expanding into additional space. It will also start an IT help-desk for its global support work.

Chairman and CEO Michael E. Greenough said the company would set up a global IT help-desk in Hyderabad and consolidate its operations here. It includes adding space and about 85 software professionals to the existing team of 450.

The $700-million enterprise solutions provider based in US has offices in US, India and Holland and together these constitute the strategic centers where work across product lines is seamless, both in terms of development and implementation and support, Greenough said.

"This year, SSA Global will celebrate its tenth year in India. The Asia-Pacific region, along with Japan, has emerged strategic for our growth. India and China are among the fastest growing markets, though on a shorter base. But going forward, this could go up from the current 14 per cent (about $100 million)"he said.

"Significantly, India has grown by about 70 per cent last quarter wherein we have over 250 clients, and China has witnessed a growth rate of about 50 per cent," he said.
