“India is Beginning to Get Expensive”

30 Jan ’06

Heise Online is reporting that SAP is shifting R&D from India to China and Eastern Europe because of rising costs in India:

The software group SAP is planning to expand significantly its research and development capacities in China and Eastern Europe, while at the same time reducing its R&D involvement with India. “India is beginning to get expensive,” the group’s CEO Henning Kagermann told the Financial Times Deutschland. “We have decided to hire only a certain number (of people) there and then commence to look around for other locations,” he declared. India has to date been one of the major research and development locations of SAP.
