Will NetApp continue to be an American company in the future?
A couple of months ago we learned that Ontap ,the NetApp software, is actually owned in the Netherlands for tax reasons. And now we are learning that NetApp’s global operations for engineering and product management are being based in Bangalore India.
NetApp Bangalore’s engineering operations were established in May 2003. The facility also houses one of the company’s four global customer support centers. In addition, it houses other global operations such as partner and product engineering, product management, partner certification, and global IT infrastructure support.
What is left in the USA? Sales and distribution? How well will the Engineers in India listen to customers in the USA?
