Indian outsourcers Infosys outsource to WISCONSIN

Apple partner also builds giant software hub in Bangalore

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Indian outsourcing company Infosys has set up a new software centre in Wisconsin, and a much bigger one in Bangalore. The new American office will service a Harley Davidson contract and will house 125 staffers in the MidWest. The new Bangalore office will be the base of 1,400 software engineers and developers purported to be working solely on iOS kit, although neither Infosys nor Apple would confirm this.

A Times of India report says the new centre is essentially an "Apple centre", where workers will be building iOS infrastructure, servicing the iCloud and working on application development and maintenance.

Infosys has put out a statement on the Wisconsin centre but has refused to comment on the new Bangalore rental or the nature of its contract with Apple. The Times' tips come from sources in the city's real estate sector, which said Infosys bought the 14000sq ft building near Electronics City in Bangalore and that it would be operational by the end of the year.

According to the Times, the new office is part of a deal that was struck in February with Apple CIO Niall O'Connor handing over a tranche of software work to Indian companies WinPro and Infosys.

Without comment from the tight-lipped partners, none of this can be confirmed. ®
