WYSE starts Engineering Center in Bangalore


WYSE, world’s No 1 thin client manufacturer with 40% market share for years had the formal launch of its Engineering Center in Whitefield in Bangalore today.

In a glittering function at Leela Hotel, presided over by Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka and Hon’ble Minister for Science & Technology, Karnataka, there was a “digital opening and ribbon cutting” of the campus.

As a Guest of Honor I had the privilege of meeting the global CEO Dr John Kish and Indian CEO Dr Nav Bhullar, amazing individuals.

I talked of my long association with WYSE terminals at Purdue Engineering Computing Network (ECN) way back in 1986, and the coincidence that the Indian software “icon” Infosys and WYSE were born in the same year, namely, 1981.

I did mention to the WYSE senior management that they can be damn sure that their decision is right. Every one of the global No 1 company across the IT stack have moved their engineering to Bangalore. How can WYSE not afford to do?

The list of World’s No 1 companies that moved their engineering to Bangalore include SAP (Application Software), BEA (Middleware), Oracle (DBMS), Microsoft (Operating System), IBM (Servers), Dell (Desktops), HP (Printers), Intel (Microprocessor, Cisco (Switches), EMC (Storage), and Applied Materials (machinery for Silicon Fab) not to mention Macromedia, AutoDesk

Thin clients are used by BFSI (Banking, Financial Services and Insurance) and Government globally. LIC (Life Insurance Corporation of India) that has 200+ Million policies use thin clients; India is a world leader in innovative e-Governance; Karnataka is a leader in e-Governance in India. It is natural that WYSE will serve this growing need and will grow to a Billion Dollar company soon

To sum up, moving engineering to Bangalore is “wise”; not moving would be “other-wise”. How can a WYSE company take anything but “wise” decision?
