Bangalore, April 13, 2013: Leading global provider of communications solutions and services, BT, is opening a new Global Development Centre (GDC) in Bangalore. 
The Bangalore teams will work closely with service design colleagues in the UK on the development, upgrades, migration and architecting of IT services. They will be a core part of BT’s drive to simplify and speed up its business processes. 

Over the next 18 months the Bangalore GDC will hire up to 600 highly skilled software development engineers. The new facility joins BT’s global network of development centres in Ipswich (Adastral Park), Belfast, Cardiff and Glasgow in the UK and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. 

These centres are operated by BT TSO, the Technology, Service & Operations organisation supporting all of BT Group’s lines of business. 

Says Ian Livingston, CEO, BT Group: “BT’s future is in delivering amazing new services to its customers through a combination of global reach and local touch. To achieve that, we need very driven teams of highly skilled specialists capable of designing innovative solutions to the highest possible quality standards. We are confident that our new Bangalore facility will attract some of India’s best talent, to the benefit of our customers all over the world. India has become a hotbed of innovation and a rapidly growing market for sophisticated networked IT services in its own right. This is clearly an opportunity we will continue to build on.”
