India operations to drive Philips innovations globally Posted by admin on 2006-9-7 11:12:27
Bangalore, Sep 7 (IANS) Royal Philips Electronics NV, a leading Consumer Debt electronics and healthcare group, has decided to make its India operations central to its global innovation strategy, a top company official said Thursday.
"Our innovation campus in Bangalore will reflect the new profile of the company to drive technologies and products in lifestyle and healthcare for contributing about 50 percent of our global software and research and development requirements," Rudy Provoost, Philips Consumer Debt Electronics CEO, told reporters.
Over the past decade, since the subsidiary's software development and research and development centres were set up here, the share of the total software resource the company outsourced from its India operations has gone up considerably.
With the hiving off the semiconductor business to NXP Semiconductors recently, the Philips innovation campus would focus on developing software products and solutions for high definition televisions, LCD (liquid crystal display) TVs, CRTs (cathode ray tubes), set-top boxes, mobile and multimedia devices.

"Going forward, the Bangalore campus will also evolve into a global inter-operable certification centre, with focus on building world-clbutt capability to develop software, hardware, content and user interface for digital and ICT products.
We want to transform the campus into a brain factory for providing end-to-end solutions in lifestyle and healthcare domains and promote our products in the emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) besides the Asean region," Provoost said.
"In the current year, the Indian subsidiary has filed for 13 international patents as against four in 2004 and is expected to file for seven more by this year-end," said Philips India CEO Alexius Collattee.
