SUSE®, a global leader in innovative, open and secure enterprise-grade solutions, today announced the opening of its new office in Bengaluru, India, to support the company’s growth as a global technology powerhouse. This office will serve as a Center of Excellence in Bengaluru, incorporating all functions at SUSE.
“India has seen a massive transformation in technology over the last few years, and we see this expansion as a pivotal opportunity for us to contribute to the economic growth and innovation,” said Imran Khan, Chief Customer Officer at SUSE. “This expansion demonstrates our continued global growth as a company and presents a wonderful opportunity to expand our already strong customer base in India by bringing even more innovation to market.”
To drive innovation and replace legacy systems, a report from Gartner found that IT spending in India will reach $100 billion in 2022. To support this continued growth and bring new jobs to the market, SUSE intends to more than double its existing headcount in India by the next 12 months.
Located in Bengaluru’s EPIP Industrial Area near SAP Labs, the new office is strategically located in one the fastest-growing tech hubs and reflects SUSE’s strategic investment into the Indian economy. The office will serve a combination of sales, product and development teams. With this expansion into India, SUSE plans to leverage India’s strong talent pool and bring on strategic new hires that will grow its Center of Excellence, which will start with the appointment of a new general manager that SUSE will announce in December.
A report The Economist published with SUSE found that 95% of organizations leverage open innovation practices, which demonstrates that open innovation is becoming ubiquitous. As a global company with a workforce in over 30 countries, SUSE’s secure and open solutions are relied upon to power the mission-critical workloads of more than 60% of the companies in the Fortune 500 – from mammograms to self-driving cars and satellites.
Customers in India that trust SUSE with their digital transformation include: Malayala Manorama, JK Tyre & Industries Ltd. and Mankind Pharma, among others.
