    OUTSOURCED : HP TO BUILD $100M DATA-CENTER IN AUSTRALIA

    Hewlett-Packard
    Co. plans an enormous data center costing more than $100 million in the
    suburbs of Sydney, Australia.News reports in Australia said HP 
    submitted planning documents to the New South Wales government for
    permission to build the center in Eastern Creek, about an hour by car
    from central Sydney.

    Work on the center will create 200
    construction jobs, said The Australian newspaper, which reviewed the
    application. Work on the center will take about a year.Though huge, the
    data center will only have about five full-time operations workers.This
    project, on the site of a former shale quarry, has not yet been
    approved.Palo Alto-based HP employs 3,500 people in the Sacramento area,
    including a major campus in Roseville.

    Hewlett-Packard To Set Up 3 Outsourcing Centers In India
    MUMBAI
    Hewlett-Packard Co. Tuesday said it will set up three outsourcing
    centers in India to support rising demand for low-cost services from
    clients around the world.

    The expansion is part of a $1 billion
    investment plan that the company announced earlier this year to
    transform and grow its enterprise services business, it added.It didn’t
    immediately give details of its other centers.The company is seeking to
    grow its presence in low-cost centers such as India in an effort to
    fight competitors such as International Business Machines Corp.,
    Accenture PLC and Dell Inc.

    H-P’s new centers, to be located in
    the southern Indian cities of Bangalore and Chennai, are likely to add
    close to 500,000 square feet of real estate, the company said.The
    company said also that it will hire additional employees.”India offers a
    complete range of capabilities in applications, infrastructure
    technology and business process outsourcing for global and domestic
    clients,” the company said.Companies such as H-P, IBM and Dell have been
    increasing their staff count in India to benefit from a large pool of
    English-speaking computer engineers and support staff. Also, Indian
    companies are seeking outsourcing vendors as they seek to expand in the
    domestic and global market.

    Demand for outsourcing services in
    India has seen a better-than-expected revival after 2008′s
    recession-driven cutback in technology and outsourcing spending.In
    November, India’s software services trade body said it estimates export
    revenue to grow at the higher end of 13%-15% in the current fiscal year
    through March 2011, backed by a robust rise in software exports in the
    first six months of the year.

    Most Indian companies follow a fiscal year ending March 31.
    “Clients
    leveraging skilled resources in India for their enterprise expect
    high-value services in addition to lower costs,” said Robb Rasmussen,
    vice president and general manager at H-P.H-P will service clients
    together with Indian outsourcing company MphasiS Ltd., of which H-P owns
    a majority stake.

    MphasiS gets about 70% of its total revenue
    from H-P and its customers.IBM is the second-largest private-sector
    employer in India after Indian outsourcing major Tata Consultancy, a
    newspaper reported in August, citing sources it didn’t identify.On Dec.
    1, Dell said it wants to acquire more companies offering IT support and
    consulting services in foreign markets, as the world’s third-largest
    computer company looks to push beyond the struggling U.S. market.
