On a recent trip to India Oracle CEO Safra Catz met with Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to discuss Oracle’s support of Modi’s “Digital India” initiative. After the meeting Catz unveiled plans to invest US$400 million to build a state-of-the-art Oracle campus in Bengaluru, India, open nine regional incubation centers, and train more than 500,000 students each year.
Oracle has been in India for more than 25 years and currently employs nearly 38,000 people. The new campus will be Oracle’s largest outside its headquarters in Redwood Shores, California, employ more than 11,000 people, and be the epicenter of its expanded operations throughout India.
“I am particularly excited about the incubation centers which will house substantial software and technology capabilities, tools, and training to help launch new technology startups built utilizing Java and the Oracle platform,” Catz explained.
