Synopsys India Managing Director Pradip K Dutta’s mandate now includes being part of the company’s Asia-Pacific operations.

Electronic design automation firm Synopsys is slowly starting to have its India operations play a more integrated role in the Asia-Pacific region, in a move that signifies a shift in its India operation from being a primarily back-office destination to a provider of high-end services.

Synopsys India Managing Director Pradip K Dutta’s mandate now includes being part of the company’s Asia-Pacific operations.

“One thing I have added to my portfolio is being part of the A-Pac operations. I have a role to utilise the built-in installed base of engineers in India… to see how it can be leveraged to gain more business in the rest of Asia,” Dr. Dutta said, in an interaction with The Hindu on Friday.

The U.S.-based $1.9-billion company has a little over 1,500 employees in India.

“This has only happened in the last two months. I have to travel to some of these Asian countries. Asia has a lot of local customers, and, in Synopsys, we take our global resources and use it locally to make best use of talent we already have,” he added. Dr. Dutta pointed out, however, that it was not about “making India a hub just yet though.”

“There’s nowhere else… where we have 1,500 engineers like we have in India. So, if a customer in Asia has an issue, and if we have technical expertise sitting here, the question is how to connect these two quickly.’’

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for 8 per cent of Synopsys’s business nearly a decade ago. It now contributes nearly 23 per cent.
