Adobe to expand operations in India
Technology giants Adobe recently acquired their prime competitors in the market Macromedia. The combined entity is a unit, which is a force to reckon with in the web publishing and print media market. And the company is now planning to expand their operations in the Indian market. The company plans to increase the headcount in India by 300 people over the next 12 months.
In addition, Adobe is also planning to open a new business unit in the IT city of Bangalore. Adobe India managing director and member of global management team of the company Naresh Gupta said in a statement: â€œMacromedia and its development centre in Bangalore will now be used by Adobe for product development.â€
The Indian unit would not only be a development unit for the company but would also do the business development for print and classic publishing unit. With the acquisition of macromedia, Adobe already has an added workforce of around 150 workers. Currently the two companies are working as separate legal entities in India. However, Adobe is working on integrating the two units for combined identity.
Gupta also added this about their Indian operations: â€œThe work is on for a Hindi version of PDF and soon the company will introduce it. Based on its response, we will consider its introduction in other local languages.â€
