Kerala IT parks at Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Kozhikode attracts Oracle,IBM, TCS, Infosys,Wipro etc

Software and hardware systems company Oracle will set up shop in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala according to newspaper report.

As per reports, Oracle and IBM are different IT majors with a favourable decision to set up shop here. With TCS already signing up early September 2010 to set up their biggest training centre at the proposed Technocity campus near Technopark, IT initiative for the state is moving in the right direction. Recently, Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan handed over to TCS the government order allotting them 82 acres of land to set up their training centre which would have facilities to train 15,000 professionals.

If it was Technopark, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) which led from the front of being the most sought-after IT destination since it began operations in the late nineties, Kochi (Cochin), the commercial capital of the state, was the second destination which the state government decided to earmark for IT development by opening the Infopark IT campus. And during the present Left government, besides expanding the IT campus at Technopark and Infopark, it also gave the green signal to set up IT Cyber Park in Kozhikode (Calicut), for which work has begun.

Both the Technopark and Infopark campus have a record 40,000 professionals working in more than 200 IT companies.

A major blot in the efforts to promote IT as the major industry after tourism is the deadlock in the talks to resolve the issues between the government and Smart City Dubai, who are contracted to build the proposed Rs.1,500 crore Smart City Kochi IT project, which is hanging fire for more than three years.
