Host Analytics, the noted provider of scalable, cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions, announced on Monday that it plans to expand its R&D bases in India at Hyderabad. According to the statement put out by the organisation, they will be investing $25 million in the R&D Center and scale up its engineering workforce over the next three years.
Addressing the press conference, CEO Dave Kellogg said that the organisation is planning to double its office space in the present location to 30,000 square feet and increase the number of employees from 150 to 300.
“Because Host Analytics was founded simultaneously in India and the US, our long history in Hyderabad and the dynamic business environment that has emerged in recent years make expansion in the region a strategic imperative in the next phase of product engineering growth,” said Kellogg.
Ron Baden, Chief Product Officer and Sanjay Vyas, Senior Vice President of Engineering and TechOps addressed the media along with Kellogg.
“We have a very talented team in Hyderabad with a strong culture of innovative collaboration and engineering excellence. The 30,000-square-foot R&D facility will provide increased capacity for engineering, product testing, research and development. The expansion will also support the company’s growing portfolio of partners and customers in the region,” said Vyas.
“We combine Silicon Valley’s best practices such as agile development, advanced tools, and periodic hackathons, with top-quality hires, including a team member who achieved 64th place out of 2,06,000 entrants in the TechGig Code Gladiators 2017 contest, to drive amazing results out of this center,” he added.
