US-based enterprise cloud software provider Infor has announced the expansion of its India operations with the opening of its new development centre (DC) in Hyderabad, one of the country’s key destinations for technology and business.

The company said that the new multi-storey development centre is spread over 350,000 sq ft and will have the capacity for 3,500 employees. The development centre was inaugurated by Jayesh Ranjan, principal secretary of the industries & commerce (I&C) and IT departments of Telangana, and Kevin Samuelson, CEO of Infor.

The company said that Infor’s India development centre was among the company’s two largest locations in the world, with over 3,700 employees in the country that drives key technology innovations to gain a competitive edge for the global marketplace. While Bengaluru is the other major location, the company has offices in a few other cities, including sales offices.
