Microsoft India getting more projects, big in “Live”

The business applications group at Microsoft’s India Development Center in Hyderabad is playing a big role in developing online and mobile applications and will be expanding this year, according to an interview that Office Platform VP Kurt DelBene did with the Economic Times of India.

The Q&A focused initially on the launch of Microsoft’s online CRM product later this month, but touched on a few other projects the India center is building. One is a new version of the Office Live online services that will be released by November and may also be released in India.

The India center is also working on a new version of Office Mobile for developing countries.

DelBene said the Office & Business Applications team in India now has about 200 people. An excerpt:

We are looking at moving many other products to India. The focus now is to increase the productivity of existing teams and we will be adding another 25 people by this year-end.
