Satyam Opens Multilingual South American Development Center



    
    Foray Into Brasil Bolsters Global Delivery Model 4,500-Square-Foot
Facility
    Will Focus on South American and Global Customers
    

    HYDERABAD, India, April 4 /CNW/ -- Satyam Computer Services, Ltd. (NYSE:  
SAY), the leading global and information technology services company,
announced today that it has launched a 4,500-square-foot development center
here, its largest facility in South America. The Satyam Latam Center is
already providing services for several Brasilian, other South American, and
global customers. Professionals at the center provide application outsourcing
and development, enterprise resource planning software implementation and
outsourcing, and infrastructure management services and consulting.
    "Establishing a strategic facility in South America complements numerous
other Satyam development centers in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and North
America," said Ram Mynampati, president of Satyam's commercial and healthcare
businesses. "It also demonstrates Satyam's commitment to providing exceptional
client service via a global delivery model, and reinforces our dedication to
the local market."
    Cleiton Amaral Dias, the chief information officer at Invista,
inaugurated the facility today. Three other local business leaders, Jane
Ricci, an IT manager at Camargo Correa; Mario Marandino, an IT manager at
Nestle; and Flavio Reis, the CIO of Caterpillar, served as lamplighters. The
lighting of a lamp at a kickoff ceremony is an ancient Indian tradition that
symbolizes the removal of ignorance and darkness.
    The center's inauguration coincided with Satyam's hosting of the First
Latin American Geosourcing Forum at the Blue Tree Hotel, an event attended by
more than 40 CXOs and key decision makers.
    "The opening of the Satyam Latam Development Center and our participation
in the Geosourcing Forum are strong indications of Satyam's dedication to
clients all over the world, and to Latin America in particular," Mynampati
said. "We are always on the lookout for places where exceptional people wish
to excel, and South America fits that bill very nicely. Sao Paulo has several
excellent universities. As a result, it also features a great number of
skilled and highly capable information technology and business professionals
who would benefit Satyam and our clients tremendously."
    "In addition to enabling Satyam to respond to our clients' needs with
more agility, the new center will serve as the organization's South American
headquarters," said Gary Teelucksingh, leader of the company's initiatives in
the Americas. "Moreover, it marks the first of several key investments Satyam
is making on this continent. In fact, plans for another substantial center in
Brasil are already under way."
    Sao Paulo Governor Jose Serra is also pleased with Satyam's decision to
increase its footprint here. "This thriving, growing city is Brasil's
industrial and financial center, and features numerous high-profile
organizations that are already Satyam clients. We look forward to leveraging
our skills in Sao Paulo and throughout the world to deliver superior business
solutions for the outstanding companies here."
