has signed a contract with Satyam Computer Services Ltd. to deploy

its Enterprise Suite at the Satyam

Learning Centre


Satyam, which has acquired a perpetual license of SumTotal's Enterprise

Suite, plans to implement the latter's solution at all its global locations.

Speaking about the five-year contract, Ed Cohen, senior vice president,

Satyam Computer Services, said, "we are happy to have tied-up with

SumTotal. We are extending our growth. We are hiring a lot. This is putting a

lot of pressure on us. On the other side we are growing our leadership space. We

believe that SumTotal's solutions will align our knowledge sharing programs

and spending with corporate initiatives planned for the future growth."

The SumTotal solution will be applied to Satyam's three enterprise wide

initiatives — Knowledge Management, Virtualisation of non-core processes and

Satyam School Leadership.


Satyam Learning Centre imparts nearly two million hours of education every

year to 28000 IT professionals in 55 countries.

Don Fowler, chief executive officer, SumTotal, who inaugurated the company's

new facility here today, said the firm plans to raise its revenues to $500

million over a period of five years. To expand its operations, SumTotal is also

looking at taking the merger and acquisitions route albeit in a selected way,

said Fowler. Currently SumTotal has revenue of $100 million.

"We get a lot of revenue from perpetual license. At the same time 45

percent of our revenue comes from recurring deals and its increasing every

quarter," said Fowler.


SumTotal's new facility located at Madhapur in the city is spread on a

space of 45,000 square feet and has a capacity to accommodate 300 employees. The

facility has been built with an investment of $2 million. SumTotal invests $8-10

million every year on India.

"We plan to expand in India with the scale of our revenue," said

Dave Crussell.
