Cisco sets up its second India delivery centre in Pune

Bangalore, June 19 , 2016: Cisco  has launched its second  India-based  Global Delivery Centre in Pune in a 17200 sq m space. India will be the only country in the world where Cisco will have two global delivery centres.
The Punje Centre will enable Cisco to get closer to its customers, thereby allowing Cisco to expand its current delivery capacity leading to increased customer satisfaction. The centre will help to proactively explore potential service growth opportunities, especially in Maharashtra.
Cisco chose Pune as the site for the new delivery center due to its mutiple attributes - the city's strategic location, its supportive government and digital transformation vision, deep technical talent and excellent communications infrastructure. Through the successful operation of the Pune center, Cisco hopes to bring new opportunities, new businesses and great service experiences to a broader customer base. The centre will help deepen the local expertise in advanced digital technologies and contribute to Pune's economic growth. The delivery centre  in Pune will focus on customers embracing digitization including leading Indian and global telco operators, insurance and finance institutions, as well as consumer goods companies – most of them operating on a global scale. The Pune centre plans to double its headcount in the next two years.|
The Pune delivery centre  builds on the success of the Global Delivery Centre atCisco’s Bengaluru site which also includes a Network Operations Center that allows engineers to proactively monitor and report any detected anomalies in the customer’s network.
Cisco is introducing a $10 million Global Cybersecurity Scholarship programme 
and enhancements to its security certification portfolio. This will address the
shortfall of security talent, Cisco will invest $10 million in a two-year Global
Cybersecurity Scholarship program to increase the pool of available talent with
critical cybersecurity proficiency. Cisco will  also offer training, mentoring and
certification that align with the Security Operations Center Analyst industry job role.
Cisco will deliver the programme in partnership with key Cisco Authorized Learning
