EPiServer, a Sweden headquartered global web content management company, on Thursday announced the launch of its Asia Pacific business operations in Bangalore.
"Our India office is an essential part of EPiServer's global expansion strategy and will support our global system integrators and solution partners in Asia, Middle East and American markets," said EPiServer AB Founder and Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Mikael Runhem.
In addition to this, the firm has established an R&D team in Bangalore to support the development organisation in Europe and continue the expansion of its product offering into new areas, he said, launching the Asia Pacific business hub.
"We are looking at a 30-member team including the R&D for our office here by the end of this year," Runhem said.
In addition to 2,000 customers and 2,900 worldwide installations, EPiServer has gathered marquee customers in India, such as Nasscom and the Knowledge Management Community of Bangalore.
Empowering global solution partners like Satyam, EPiServer is currently targeting the mid-market segment with their community and web 2 functionality.
"We see an increasing demand for advanced web platforms such as our EPiServer CMS," he said, adding the firm which has five partners at present "is looking at around 40 partners by the end of this year."
EPiServer India President Sunny Ghosh said, "We know there are over 1,000 web projects delivered to our customers in Europe every day. Demand exceeds supply. We plan to narrow this gap with the help of our Indian partners and forsee that India will need 300 EPiServer developers in the next 18 months."
