Symyx has opened a new software and R&D centre in Bangalore, India, where developers will collaborate with other Symyx sites on the company's core scientific information management software solutions, including the Symyx enterprise ELN, data acquisition software, decision-support software and scientific information databases.
'With the addition of developers in one of the most important and emerging tech centres in the world, our global R&D team has improved capability to respond to current and future electronic lab environment needs across the life sciences, chemicals and energy, and consumer and industrial products industries,' said Dr Trevor Heritage, president, Symyx Software.
Symyx is partnering with Encora, Inc, a Scottsdale, Arizona-based global provider of collaborative product development (CPD) services, to establish the R&D centre in Bangalore. Encora plans to setup the Symyx R&D centre, which will deploy 30-35 developers by the end of 2009, through its field-tested collaborative engagement model.

further enhances our presence and underscores our commitment to the life sciences vertical,' said Kinesh Doshi, executive vice president, Encora.
