Infosys, with headquarters in Bangalore, India, and Microsoft announced a new information technology (IT) transformation initiative designed to help clients improve business performance and build competitive advantage.

Commenting on the relationship, Steve Ballmer, CEO, Microsoft Corp., said, "Microsoft and Infosys share a commitment to helping customers use technology to improve every area of their business, from process excellence to connecting with customers to responding effectively to the competitive landscape. Microsoft's long-term focus on delivering an integrated, manageable and reliable platform, combined with Infosys' unique delivery model and deep consulting skills, is designed to help customers succeed and grow through increased efficiency, cost savings and business value."

This deal is part of an overall strategy on the part of Microsoft to enhance its competive position in India.

"Innovations in technology by Microsoft inspire the solutions we create," stated Nandan Nilekani, CEO, President and Managing Director, Infosys Technologies Ltd. "Using Microsoft technologies we can deliver what clients want most -- competitive advantage. Our two companies agree that by bringing together complementary assets and skills our clients will benefit from a unique experience of the combined expertise. Our solutions transform IT environments for our clients; improving quality and productivity and ultimately strategic flexibility of their business."

Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer said he was excited about the work going on in India on the technology front. "I think Indian IT majors like Wipro and Infosys are doing an incredible job. I see growth in the market for Indian industry as well as global firms like Microsoft," Ballmer told reporters. "I feel India is growing at a faster rate to increase its importance in the tech world, sooner," he said.

Ballmer also stated that Microsoft Corp. will hire several hundred new staff at its new Indian campus in the next year, its chief executive said today-- a move aimed at strengthening its presence in Asia's fourth-biggest economy.

"This facility will employ another 1600 people. Today, ground ceremony has set in place wherein another 1600 people will be employed in the course of next one year or so. I am sure that this will be the biggest and largest facility of Microsoft," Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy told reporters after receiving the inaugural ceremony.

Ballmer said plans to hire locally would not mean the loss of jobs in the United States. "We are doing more at this campus, I think it will profoundly impact people from around the world. The work we are doing here is not low level, it's very high level creative engineering. We are working on the core products in the microsoft coperation worldwide," said Ballmer.
