Sony India Software Centre Pvt. Ltd.[edit]

Sony currently has global software development facilities in the United States, Europe, Japan, China and India. Among these, Sony India Software Centre (SISC), located in Bengaluru—India’s Silicon Valley—has expanded notably in recent years. Established in 1997, SISC serves as a development base for software used in a wide range of products manufactured by Sony Group companies around the world and as the Group’s global offshore IT centre. With the role of software taking on ever-greater importance in this digitized age, SISC is rapidly augmenting its team of engineers. In fiscal year 2010, ended March 31, 2011, SISC had approximately 1,000 engineers on staff. Their work contributed to efforts of the entire Sony Group to advance state-of-the-art 3D technologies, as well as to the development of new products, including Sony Internet TV, Sony Tablet and Android based mobile phones and other devices. As the Group’s strategic offshore IT centre, they worked together with Sony Group companies with the aim of reinforcing the Group’s operating foundation.[5]

In early 2012, Sony Corp restructured its India business by creating two separate units, one for undertaking sales and marketing operations, headquartered at New Delhi and the other for focusing on software and product development based in Bengaluru. As a result, Sony India Software Centre Pvt. Ltd. was de-merged from Sony India Pvt. Ltd. as a separate entity aiming at more effective operations.[6]
