After having ten successive profitable quarters worldwide, Borland plans to double its strength in the next four months in India. The company is also planning to launch new products and is aggressively looking for new alliances.

John Kaster, Developer Relations Manager, Borland, said, "India is a developer centric market and being platform neutral it has helped us a lot in getting business out here. We have just launched 'Jbuilder' for the developers which is the most widely used Java development environment. It is designed for ease of use, supports every major OS and is integrated with the latest versions of all industry-leading J2EE application servers."

The company is aggressively looking for alliances in the banking and finance sector, education sector and distributors. The company has recently tied-up with Wipro. The company is planning to double its strength as it has a very small team in India and is expecting an increase in its revenues by 30 percent. 

In the Q3, its revenues have been increased by 10 percent. Also the company is planning to invest heavily in India next year.


Kaster added that acquisitions are in the pipeline and the company is open for acquisitions if it is going to help the customers and the company. The company has recently acquired Togethersoft and

Starbase.

On the technology front the company has plans to launch new products in India which include J Builder-8, Visibroker, C++ mobile edition, new edition of enterprise server, Java datastore and some major announcement is expected on the .NET platform next year. Borland is preparing to go head-to-head with Microsoft next year with new programming tools that allow developers to build software for Microsoft's Windows OS and its overarching .Net software plans.
