IT exporter Microland has opened a new software development centre here and plans to hire 100 employees in this centre.

Microland has opened this centre for service clients of Computacenter, which is the parent company of a group of European companies that provide services to public- and private-sector customers in the UK and other parts of Europe. The partnership is for five years but Microland did not divulge the size of this outsourcing contract.

Computacenter, which has revenues of €3 billion last year, has chalked out a new strategy that is a mix of onshore and offshore outsourcing and Microland will assist the company to monitor and run technology of its clients out of Bengaluru’s Bagmane Tech Park office.

According to Simon Oecken, Group Managed Services Director, Computacenter, this deal is a part of its globalisation strategy, which means that the company is looking at partnering with more outsourcing providers outside of Europe.

Talking to BusinessLine, Pradeep Kar, Microland founder and MD, said the company will continue to grow three times faster than Nasscom’s projections for the 2015 fiscal, on the back of deals like these.

According to Nasscom estimates, the industry is expected to grow in the range of 13-15 per cent this fiscal. Since it is a privately held company, Microland did not share revenue plans for the year.

The company has around 2,700 employees with 75 global clients and six global delivery centres – three in India and one each in the US, the UK and West Asia.
