BANGALORE: India’s top tech firms (TCS, Wipro and others) are pursuing Target’s captive technology centre for a long-term outsourcing contract worth $300-400 million. Target has around 1,500 staff employed at its Bangalore centre, currently doing software development and maintenance work.

Both TCS and Wipro count Target as one of their top retail customers.

Some of the world’s top retailers have been outsourcing projects to Indian third-party service providers, including TCS and Infosys, apart from their own captive centres in order to support their existing IT systems and also develop newer applications. Outsourcing millions every year by outsourcing its IT projects to India.

“Target’s India centre could be doing at least $100 million worth of projects (revenues) every year." Officials at Target did not reply to an email query sent by the Economic Times. Target entered India in 2004 through a Joint Venture with ANSRSource, a Texas-based BPO outsourcing company.

“There is a certain equity in building up the operations (captive) initially, but over the course of time, there is the objective of monetising the operations,” said Avinash Vashistha, CEO, Tholons, an offshore advisory firm.
