webMethods, Inc., a leading business integration and optimization software company, announced the opening of its expanded India Development Center (IDC) in Bangalore, India. Since launching the IDC in 2004, webMethods has grown its presence in India as a core component of its strategy to accelerate and expand product development in support of the company's award-winning product suite, webMethods Fabric. In addition, the IDC also serves as an important component of webMethods' "follow-the-sun" service model, which distributes customer service requests across multiple global facilities to improve the speed in which these requests are met.

webMethods first initiated development in India two years ago with the company's in-country workforce having grown considerably over the subsequent time period. With these increased economies of scale, webMethods has been able to reduce research and development (R&D) costs despite total R&D headcount remaining constant. The new IDC facility will allow webMethods to further expand this workforce.

The IDC also supports the operations of webMethods Global Services with Bangalore-based consultants helping to meet customer requirements throughout India and across the broader Asia-Pacific region. In addition, these consultants work closely with many of webMethods' partners that are based in the region, helping to facilitate the mixed delivery models - on-site/off-site development - being employed by corporations around the world.
