Satyam Joins with Microsoft to Deliever .Net Services

BOMBAY -- India's fourth largest software exporter, Satyam Computer Services Ltd. and Microsoft Corp. have announced that they would jointly create and deliver high-value software solutions using Microsoft .net framework in the Asia-Pacific region.

This follows the launch of Satyam's Singapore facility to service the Asia Pacific market.

The joint consultation program and cooperative engagements would be undertaken to expand customer adoption and to promote solutions based on the Microsoft .net framework, a Satyam release said, adding that, the combined expertise of the alliance would enable companies to adopt new technologies without disrupting their essential processes.

Microsoft would utilize Satyam's skill sets to deliver cutting-edge e-business, enterprise and mobile solutions using key components of Microsoft's .net framework in verticals such as financial services, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, government, logistics and education, it said.

"We believe there is a tremendous opportunity for high-end Microsoft consulting in the Asia-Pacific region. We will extend our expertise in this region," the director of Satyam Asia and vice-president of Satyam Virender Aggarwal said.

The team at Satyam is working to incorporate Microsoft's Hailstorm technology into a wide range of services to create a new breed of solution constellations that span multiple applications, devices and services.

These solutions are expected to provide high-volume, low cost, well-integrated services that can be consumed as standard Web services accessible from any Internet-connected PC or device including non-Windows devices.

Satyam provides software solutions for more than 300 global clients, including 40 Fortune 500 corporations. The company announced last week a 134 percent jumps in net profit for the year to March 2001.
