EMC Corporation has made investment in opening its second research and development (R&D) center in Pune, India.
At present, EMC has a Centre of Excellence (COE) in Bangalore. The new center in Pune with 137,000 square feet of usable office space strengthens EMC’s innovation engine within India, including plans to increase its workforce.
The EMC COE in Pune will help EMC to help customers transform business by creating their digital future and modernize, automate and transform IT through cloud computing.
Howard Elias, president and chief operating officer, Global Enterprise Services at EMC Corporation, said: “India is important to our strategic global growth plans. The EMC COE in Pune will play an important role in helping EMC deliver comprehensive, next-generation technology solutions for our customers.”
As EMC’s largest R&D centre outside of North America, the EMC COE in Bangalore hosts product, services and support groups across EMC’s offerings. The Pune centre will supplement the EMC COE in Bangalore with added capabilities to undertake additional R&D and Services work for cloud and storage technologies.
