IBM says it will invest 1.5 billion$ more in India in 2008
Feb 03 2008

Mumbai (PTI): Betting big on India's fast growing IT security demand, global IT giant IBM is planning to increase its investments in India out of its USD 1.5 billion global security budget this year.

IBM has chosen India as one of the three global destinations to deploy its security researchers.

"We are gearing up to cater to the global market opportunity for security spend, which is around USD 100 billion. We are planning to increase investments in our two software laboratories in Pune and Bangalore in 2008," IBM's Worldwide Evangelist for Security Pierre Noel told PTI.

This investment, which would come as part of IBM's USD 1.5 billion security initiative, will fund the IT major's ongoing projects to develop new security products in India, Noel said.

In 2006, IBM had said that it would treble its investment to USD 6 billion by 2009 with a view to enhance its presence in the fast-growing domestic market.

With India among the leading economies in emerging markets, the country has become a favourable investment destination for global IT majors like Microsoft and Google.

Google made its debut as an investor in domestic venture capital funds in January last year by investing USD 3.75 million in a domestic seed-fund, which had a total size of USD 13 million.

While Google and Microsoft have hinted more India-centric investments, IBM is understood to have focused more on the country's security services market.

According to IBM, it has signed services deals worth USD 1.4 billion in Q4 FY08 in India and has identified the country as one of the three global destinations to deploy IBM researchers in security initiatives, with the other two being Germany and Japan.

"We will also deploy over 200 IBM researchers in three research labs across the world, with one of them being India, while other two being Zurich and Tokyo," Noel said.

However, he declined to divulge further details about the project.

IBM is also understood to have plans to invest in a series of marketing events, focusing on security and risk mitigation, which will target on the Indian enterprises.

In order to broaden its portfolio, IBM had exercised a series of acquisitions in the estimated USD 22 billion global security services market, including the USD 1.3 billion acquisition of the US-based Internet Security Systems in 2006.

This was followed by the acquisitions of Netherlands-based Consul Risk Management and US company Watchfire, in January and July, 2007, respectively.

At present, IBM has two research labs in Delhi and Banglore and runs two other development labs in Pune and Bangalore, fully engaged in security-related researches.

As on December 31, 2007, IBM has an employee strength of nearly 73,000 in the country and the number is expected to go up in the months ahead.

apart from all that rubbish being sent by indians and to indians on this forum, the information you are presenting here might be a fact.

Now the trick is india is more than 1 billion people now, so of course when you have more than 1/4th of the world population then you produce loads of phds, professionals, engineers doctors or whatever, because you are already too many people. The reason why industrial and techonlogical giants are investing in india is because of the manpower in india is very cheap also they are educated to a proportion to bear a technological industry. Again why? because indians are too many, india has its own economy which if you say has a big share of macro economy of this world and affects it in turn in other words india is a big consumer of products and that is why it is a big producer as well; why? because indians are again too many.
I hope you take it +vely.
