Mimosa Systems, a Silicon Valley based company involved in data management

solutions, launched its India develop-ment center in Pune. The com-pany is

foraying into the Indian market in partnership with In-Reality Software on a

Build-Operate-Transfer(BOT) model.

In-Reality will provide its operational excellence in managing this center on

a day-to-day basis until it is trans-ferred and becomes a subsi-diary of Mimosa.

To drive this effort, Mimosa has brought on board Makarand Vaidya as the

director for the Pune develop-ment center. Vaidya comes to Mimosa from the data

protec-tion group of Veritas Software in India. Dr TM Ravi, its President and

CEO informed that the com-pany currently has strength of 20 people in the US and

25 in India. According to him, the Pune center would remain as a center of

excellence for e-mail and Microsoft server technologies.

Mimosa has received fun-ding to the tune of $ 10.5 million from Clearstone

Venture Partners, August Capital and DotEdu Ventures for its expansion plans.

Sumant Mandal, Partners MD, Clear-Stone Venture said the com-pany is very

excited about the opportunity in India.

A five-member team of ClearStone Ventures is curren-tly scouting companies in

Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Delhi. On Mimosa, Mandal said that e-mail archiving

and reco-very were some of the critical issues that IT companies need to deal

with new regulations require companies to treat email data as business records.
