Symphony to play a nice tune in Bangalore


ImageIn a move to focus more on innovation in product development and step into the next phase of IT services, Symphony Services, is to set up another development centre in Bangalore.

This is the second development center in Bangalore from the Palo Alto-based IT services firm which specializes in providing outsourced product development for global software companies and analytics services. There are also two more centers in the Pune and Mumbai in the western state of Maharashtra.

The company which develops new product releases for companies like Autodesk, BMC Software, Hyperion, IRI and Siebel/Oracle, Yahoo, as well as with emerging technology companies like Mimosa and Kazeon, is on a fast growth trajectory.

In a timeframe of three years, it has hired about 3000 engineers and this new facility has a 2000-seat capacity which according to company officials is “going to be filled faster than you we expect.”

Gordon Brooks, CEO and president, Symphony Services, said during a Bangalore press conference that the company is in the process of spearheading an “innovation partnership revolution” in India and would soon be a name to reckon with for building innovative software products for its clients.

“In 2005 alone we completed the end–to-end management for 25 products most of which were white board to market releases. Today we have over 240 products (across various domains such as ERP, CRM, business process management (BPM) business intelligence (BI) and storage) under management for over 70 large customers and emerging companies in our development centers here in India,” Brooks said.

Dr Ajay Kela, COO and Managing Director, Symphony Services who has been playing a key role in expanding the product mix and creating a “Symphony” brand for outsourced product development said, “We have convinced our clients that we can build their products here. Now, we have moved onto the next phase of making innovations happen out of India.”

Forty out of the new products that have come out from the Indian development centers are brand new products, right from white board to market release. Fifty per cent of them have attained awards from different innovation forums.

“We had developed a data protection product for a US technology company, Mimosa. This has been integrated with the Microsoft Exchange Server to provide a high level of data protection and recovery,” Kela added.

A similar kind of a product in continuous data protection space for another technology firm, Kazeon had resulted in including this product among the “cool vendors” by Gartner.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
