Ensono looks to hire 600 people in next couple of years
The company currently has an employee base of 450 people, who transferred from Wipro at the start of the month across Pune and Chennai.
“As the business continues to grow, we expect to increase our headcount to about 600 people over the next couple of years in India. The India operations will support our existing customers in the US and Europe, who so far were supported from the US,” Von-Deylen said.
The Wipro data centre business, acquired for $405 million, has helped the Chicago-headquartered firm increase in size to a $550-million business.
VonDeylen said Ensono may consider more acquisitions to add specific capabilities like consulting or security.
The hosted data centre business is an over $100-billion market, growing 10-15% annually.
As per the terms of the acquisition, Ensono has a revenue commitment of $90 million from Wipro over the next three years.
Ensono also partners with other IT firms such as Sungard and Infosys, offering hosted infrastructure solutions for their clients.
VonDeylen ruled out working with Indian companies in the immediate future. “The business is focused on the US and Europe at present, and is likely to remain this way for the next two-three years,” he said.
