Company outsourcing software, maintenance work

Apple is aiming to "quadruple" the amount of money it spends in India, claims local publication The Economic Times. In January the company's CIO, Niall O'Connor, is said to have visited the city of Bangalore, where he was met by senior officials from two technology companies, Infosys and Wipro. O'Connor is reportedly deciding which firms in India will get lucrative software and maintenance contracts worth about $100 million.

The Times' sources specifically say that O'Connor met with Infosys and Wipro officials between January 29th and the 31st. Infosys is believed to receive about $50 million annually from Apple. Wipro, meanwhile, has for several years collaborated with Apple on software application testing.
