SIEMENS TO START UNIX DEVELOPMENT IN UK TO TAP BRITISH SOFTWARE EXPERTISE

By CBR Staff Writer

Emphasising Siemens’ commitment to Unix and its determination to show customers that the company is in the UK to stay, the Munchener will be officially opening a research and development centre in Woodleigh, near Reading next month. The centre’s main thrust will be in Unix development, and it is currently dealing with kernel level porting. Although it is not yet officially opened, 12 people have started projects there and over the next two years, teams of communications, expert systems, and software engineering specialists will be built up. Siemens expects the centre to employ around 150 staff in the 8,500 square foot facility within two years. The West German says that it chose the UK because of the software talent available. Eventually, the centre will also provide support for the UK marketing operation. Siemens Data finally arrived in the UK market last year after spending the best part of a decade coming to the brink and then crying off.
