Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) plans to launch a new

development center in Chennai.

The company plans to begin its operation in Chennai from

April 15. The center will be located at a leased space, which will initially

accommodate 400 employees. The facility will provide applications and

infrastructure services for many of CSC's global clients.

The California-based com­pany is actively recruiting for

all levels in order to increase its headcount to 1,000 in Chennai by year-end

and 3,000 when center becomes fully operational. “We selec­ted Chennai as one

of our strategic locations to sup­port CSC's aggressive growth objectives in

India. Chennai is among the first few cities to start offshore software

development in this country and, through proactive initiatives on behalf of the

state govern­ment, has established a reputation for excellence in IT services.

Other factors involved in our selection include Chennai's excellent

educational system, its strong talent base and quality of life,” said Tom

Kenyon, President and MD of CSC's operations in India. “We will leverage

both our India and international experience to build a strong presence for CSC

in Chennai and deliver significant business results to the clients we serve,”

added Kenyon.
