German automaker Daimler has opened its new IT centre in Bangalore and plans to hire 800 employees by 2015.

The company, which already has its presence in Chennai, Pune and Bangalore, has opened this centre with an eye to roll out SAP services from this location.

“Mercedes-Benz Research and Development Centre India will work on all SAP-related services in addition to servicing anti-virus related solutions and manage its data centre for all its internal technology needs,” said Michael Gorriz, CIO, Daimler AG.

Company executives believe that adequate talent pool in Bangalore was one of the key reasons to open this centre.

Apart from Bangalore, the company also is developing a similar centre in Turkey, but did not give out any further details.

Assuaging fears that this centre will reduce engagement with its existing technology partners, Gorriz said the company will continue to work with Indian partners like Infosys and others. Mercedes-Benz’s centre employs around 400 IT professionals.
