Microsoft director of EMEA Jean-Philip Courtois has opened an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) centre in Vedbæk north of Copenhagen, where Microsoft has its largest development centre outside the Seattle HQ. The new centre is aimed at companies which build specific solutions on top of Microsoft's platforms. The idea is that they can use the centre to develop their solutions in collaboration with Microsoft specialists.

 

Jean-Philip Courtois said at the opening, that Microsoft has chosen to place the centre in Vedbæk due to the company having 750 developers there, and because of the preparedness to work in partnerships. The fact that Scandinavia has one of the highest IT spread levels in the world also played a major role in the decision.

 

Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation Helge Sander headed the official opening of the centre. He said that Microsoft's investments in Denmark benefit the staff in Vedbæk and also have great importance for Denmark's ability to attract capable researchers and developers to the country. The news is reported by ComputerWorld and financial newspaper Børsen.

 

Microsoft's development centre in Vedbæk was created after the IT giant acquired the Danish company Navision in 2002 for USD 1.76 billion (approx. DKK 11 billion), the second most expensive acquisition in its history up to that time.
