18 Nov 20131 Share

Two Indian technology companies – Synowledge and Aditi – are to create 75 jobs between them, it emerged as Ireland’s Jobs Minister Richard Bruton, TD, leads a trade mission to India. Indian companies are understood to employ more than 3,000 people in the Republic of Ireland.

Aditi Technologies, a ‘Cloud First’ technology services company, is to establish its European Services and Business Development Centre in Dublin, with the creation of 40 local jobs.

Aditi has helped more than 150 companies run and transform their business with cloud platforms like Windows Azure, Salesforce.com, and Amazon Web Services.

“The Europe business of Aditi has been growing more than 50pc year-on-year, and from a standing start in 2007, is now 30pc of the business, with customers in retail, travel, and online betting and gaming,” said Kaushik Banerjee, VP Europe, Aditi Technologies.

“The Irish operation will focus on aiding the complex cross-platform deployments to cloud, with gradual recruitment of consulting and engineering staff, as the business grows its services in Europe.”

Welcoming the Aditi announcement, Bruton said: “A global workforce is bringing about disruption in the way organisations operate. Cloud, social media and mobile are redefining one’s interaction with the systems at home and work. Aditi Technologies is at the heart of this change and has been engaged in transforming businesses to benefit disproportionately from these emerging mega trends.”

Near-shore delivery to Europe

Synowledge, specialising in the provision of drug safety and regulatory affairs services for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device sectors, is to establish an international headquarters in Dublin with the creation of 35 new high quality jobs.

Activities carried out at the new international headquarters will include business development for non-US markets, near shore servicing and IP management. The Irish operation will carry out sales and marketing for the entire Synowledge product portfolio and will provide near shore delivery of the company’s pharmacovigilance, regulatory and IT services to Europe.

Sankesh Abbhi, president and CEO of Synowledge, said: ‘”Having grown exponentially since we began operations in 2009, we were proud to be recognised recently as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the US. Our growth is based on our focus on excellence, our people and our clients. 

“We are able to manage such dynamic change because of our agility and ability to locate strategically to best serve our clients. Ireland was a logical choice for our international base to seamlessly connect with our US HQ and our delivery centres in Europe, India and Japan.

“Being in the drug safety, IT and regulatory affairs fields, Ireland’s profile as a hub for the global life-sciences sector and its cosmopolitan talent pool, were also key factors in our decision. We are confident that Ireland will add value to our clients and further fuel our growth trajectory.”

“This announcement by Synowledge that it is to establish its international headquarters in Dublin with the creation of 35 new high quality jobs is further endorsement of our ongoing efforts to attract new and innovative companies to invest and grow their business in Ireland,” Bruton said.

“Through continued implementation of our plan, I am determined to ensure that we can see more announcements like this.”
