Microsoft Business Solutions in Vedbæk north of Copenhagen, aims to become a world leading development centre for company software in five years

Microsoft Business Solutions in Vedbæk north of Copenhagen, aims to become a world leading development centre for company software in five years. The objective was revealed in an interview with the new managing director of Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) in Vedbæk, Klaus Holse Andersen by weekly newsletter MandagMorgen (MondayMorning). In 2002, Microsoft acquired the Danish company Navision based in Vedbæk for USD 1.76 billion (approx. DKK 11 billion), the second most expensive acquisition in Microsoft's history up to that time. The Vedbæk facility is Microsoft's largest development centre outside its Seattle HQ.

 

Klaus Holse Andersen says MBS in Vedbæk has spent time identifying its core competencies which are processes, design and partners: "In brief, we are particularly good at developing beautifully designed software which our partners can build on, and which support customers' supply chain processes", he adds.

 

MBS wants to maintain and develop its core competencies to realise its ambition to become a globally leading development centre. Attracting staff with talents and knowledge from all over world plays a vital role in this process, according to the MD. Today every 3rd employee in Vedbæk comes from abroad.
