HYDERABAD: Virtusa Corporation, a global software development and IT services firm, today announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Andhra Pradesh government to acquire land to set up a campus in the outskirts of Hyderabad.

The campus, which would house an advanced technology center for Virtusa, would be developed on approximately seven acres of land on the city outskirts in Hitech City. Virtusa intends to commence construction in 2005.

Elaborating on the plans, CEO Kris Canekeratne said: "The decision to set up Virtusa's first campus in Hyderabad reinforces our commitment to the city. India has always played a major role in Virtusa's growth plans. The new campus will include state-of-the-art offices, cafeteria, gymnasium and other modern facilities for employees. It will be similar to Virtusa's existing global centers, offering the best-in-class technologists and engineers comfortable and state-of-the-art working environment needed for optimum performance."
