Microsoft announced the launch of the India Development Center (IDC) in Delhi National Capital Region (NCR).
IDC NCR is Microsoft’s third Development Center in India, serving as a premier facility for driving innovation.
The India Development will open opportunities for engineers, with plans to expand to a full-fledged development center, similar to IDC facilities in Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
“The launch of the new IDC center in NCR is a step towards realizing IDC’s vision to be a world class development center and source of innovation for the next billion users. This creates opportunities for engineers to do meaningful work,” Rajiv Kumar, managing director of Microsoft India Research & Development, said.
IDC NCR will be home to Microsoft’s engineering teams across various technology groups, including Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Research Group, Cloud & Enterprise Group, and Experience & Devices Group, along with Core Services Engineering and Operations. IDC NCR will also house Mixer, Microsoft’s live streaming gaming platform team, becoming the first center to host the gaming team outside the company headquarters in Redmond.
