Microsoft to develop new SCM software in Denmark  

Microsoft will develop a new type of Supply Chain Management software at its Danish development and operations centre in Vedbæk

Following US software giant Microsoft's acquisition of Denmark's largest software house Navision in July, development growth has reportedly doubled. The latest initiative is the setting up of a new centre at Navision's former headquarters in Vedbæk, north of Copenhagen, which will develop a new type of supply chain management (SCM) software principally aimed at the small and middle sized company segment. Between now and summer 2003, Microsoft will employ 50 more highly skilled IT staff, bringing the total development-side workforce in Denmark to 450. The news is reported in financial daily newspaper Børsen.


Microsoft's takeover of Navision was the second biggest purchase of its kind in Microsoft's 27 year history. The total transaction value of the stock and cash purchase was 10.8 billion (USD 1.4 billion). Navision's HQ has now become the centre of development and operations for Microsoft Business Solutions in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), as well as Microsoft's largest product development centre outside the US.
