Apple CIO pays visit to India

Thu, Feb 16, 2012


Citing a report from The Economic Times, 9to5Mac reported earlier this week that Apple’s Chief Information Officer, Niall O’Connor, visited India in January to pay visits to technology firms Infosys and Wipro.

Apple is supposedly looking to “quadruple the amount it spends in India, making it all the more covetous for Infosys and Wipro.” The CIO will decide which Indian companies get software outsourcing orders and maintenance work worth about $100 million USD (490 crore), which is roughly 20 percent of the Cupertino, Calif.-based Company’s total global outsourcing spending…

The Economic Times spoke with many off-the-record sources unwilling to violate their contracts by speaking publicly on the matter, but the consensus report indicates that O’Connor met with Infosys and Wipro executives between Jan. 29 and Jan. 31. Apple already contributes $50 million annually to Infosys, and Wipro has worked with the technology giant for the last few years on software application testing.
