The world is shrinking as IT is growing

Just a decade back, Information Technology was considered as a field, related only to those directly involved with it. A decade later, the scenario has completely changed. IT has seeped into each and every field. The result-four year old kids preferring surfing the Net as their hobby and the neighborhood shopkeeper listing the advantage of the latest accounting software. Thanks to IT.

Chennai has that something extra for IT

The investor-friendly IT policy designed by the Government of Tamilnadu will certainly boost the growth of the IT industry. It promises to remove bottlenecks for setting up a hardware or software unit and will develop manpower skills by facilitating training in educational institutions. These, apart from various other innovative entrepreneur development schemes, make Tamilnadu a heaven for the IT industry.

The flexible IT Park

To put it short, SIPCOT STP, Siruseri, is exactly the kind of software park you've been wanting all along. No limitations on space, layout, facilities, etc. In fact all these will be decided by you. The park will offer you 215 acres of land amidst lush greenery, well laid concrete roads and provisional for residential facilities and warehouses. Apart from essential facilities like Bank, Post Office, Fast food restaurant, etc.

An exclusive in-station will be commissioned for all the power requirements of the park. One acre of land has been earmarked to set up a 34mb Digital Connectivity station, for transferring digital data from all the software units to anywhere in the world

The park can be called as a flexible software park, for the reason that you have a choice of small, medium or large plots. It gives you the option of planning for your future space needs too. Space, not just for your software unit alone, but also to set-up social infrastructure for your employees. It could vary from a simple quarters to a mini township, with facilities like parks, swimming pool, gymnasium, club, play area, etc.

One major advantage of such a flexible software park is that, confidentiality can be maintained to its fullest, since each unit will be a separate unit by itself. And for small units, they can expand as they grow. which means their working capital need not be blocked in the initial stage itself.
