BANGALORE, INDIA: SunGard Availability Services, a provider of Information Availability and business continuity services, announced on Tuesday its expansion into India with two new Workplace Recovery facilities, located in Thane (near Mumbai) and Noida.


The opening of these new centers follows the signing of a dedicated workplace recovery contract with a major international bank, and aims to meet the demand from international businesses for high levels of resilience for their key operations, whereby mission critical, off-shore or outsourced business processes are protected according to business value, not just location, said a press release.

Built to the latest design standards, the facility at Noida is ideally placed to serve businesses in Delhi, Noida and Gurgaon. The Thane center is well positioned to provide recovery capabilities to companies west of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, as well as those in Navi Mumbai and upcoming business districts near the airport at Santacruz and Bandra Kurla. These centers provide the option for future phases of development in line with industry, the release added.

“This expansion is as a result of direct demand from global businesses — particularly in the financial sector — for the same levels of security and resilience that they enjoy in their other territories,” says Keith Tilley, Managing Director UK and Executive Vice-President Europe for SunGard Availability Services.


He added that the SunGard’s unrivaled heritage for robustness and scalability, combined with their existing knowledge of the Indian business landscape — including the challenges peculiar to the competitive Business Process Outsourcing sector — means they are well placed to deliver cost-effective availability solutions of high global standards for businesses located in India. 

Tilley added, “We see this as just the initial phase of our expansion in India and are currently reviewing options for additional services as well as locations.”

SunGard Availability Services has a significant presence within India through a 250-strong team of dedicated professionals, including software development support for SunGard’s business continuity management software, the release said.
