Victoria spruiks four Indian IT deals

Lenders goes to India, brings jobs home.

Victorian ICT Minister John Lenders has returned from a five-day trip to India to announce a bevy of deals involving Indian ICT firms opening offices in Melbourne.

Software vendor Kovair Software, which runs software development out of India, announced it has set up its regional headquarters in Melbourne.

The company, which makes software to manage multi-site application development and for IT service management, said its presence would create 50 jobs.

"Melbourne will be the company's centre for selecting new resellers in the region," said Kovair Software CEO Bipin Shah.

Kovair also announced it had entered into a partnership with La Trobe University, which will see Kovair's Global Lifecycle Application available for use by students, researchers and start-up companies located at La Trobe's Technology Infusion Centre.

Another Indian IT firm, Attra, said it would create 50 jobs by expanding its Victorian presence, in a separate release today.

Further, Lenders announced that local IT company Business Intelligence Technologies (BIT) would employ 20 more staff courtesy of a new multi-million dollar contract to implement a web-based project management and monitoring system for an Indian city council.

Finally, Infosys Australia said it had made good on an earlier commitment to employ 100 people in Australia and New Zealand by March, revealing it had employed 90 people in Victoria to date in the recruitment drive.
