BANGALORE: Oracle India Private Limited plans to increase its
numbers of employees in India, from its present 2,225 to 4,000 in the next few
years, as part of its ramp up plans in India. "Business and economic
conditions does not encourage me to give an exact time frame, but we certainly
plan to increase the number of employees in India," said Oracle Asia
Pacific Executive Vice President Derek William, while inaugurating the second
phase of Oracle Technology Park in Bangalore. He also refused to divulge the
investment by Oracle for the technology park.

The Oracle Technology Park in Bangalore is the only park outside its US headquarters, in Redwood Shores, California, to house three of the company divisions, India Development Center (IDC), India Support Center and Solution Services India, making it a Center of Excellence for Oracle.

According to Williams, Oracle plans to introduce Internet sales division (a web based call center) and shared services division in India operating out of the tech park in Bangalore. The shared service division will be Oracle’s fourth center in the world, after centers in the US, Africa and Australia caters to the company’s demand. It also plans to increase staff in the e-consulting team, apart from other divisions.

“Oracle’s India Development Centers in Bangalore and Hyderabad develop every product of the Oracle products family from the database tools, application servers and e-business applications. This involves development, product management, maintenance, quality engineering, documentation and release. So far about 10 patents have been filed, developed purely out of India,” Oracle Asia Pacific division Product Services Vice President Ranjan Chak.

“India is a jewel in Oracle’s crown. It has helped us achieve results for the investments put in these centers. The opening of the new facility will only increase the rate of success, helping us to come ever closer to our objective of complete unbreakable and simple solutions to our customers,” said Williams. The company is working along with the Government of Karnataka to offer its services and expertise, as part of its worldwide program for government and government aided schools, to eliminate the digital divide.
