A grand opening of Micron Global Development Centre in Hyderabad by Micron Technology Inc. Cleary shows their confidence in the talent pool available locally in Hyderabad. Present were some prominent top officials like Dee Mooney, Executive Director, Micron Foundation; Sanjay Mehrotra, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Micron Technology Inc.; April Arnzen, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Micron Technology Inc.; and Jeff VerHeul, Senior Vice President, Nonvolatile Engineering, Micron Technology Inc. Their presence was more than enough to indicate Micron’s seriousness towards such a large scale launch in India, that too in Hyderabad, a fast emerging technology hub of India. This is Micron’s second footprint in India. They already have an operations site in Bengaluru launched in April 2019. Expansion at such a fast pace in India is really credible for both Micron and India. There was a high level of enthusiasm and energy all around on the huge floor.

Micron Global Development Centre in Hyderabad aims to create a talent pool in diversified fields to gain faster breakthroughs in the latest emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Internet of Things (IoT)m, and Emerging Memory. Interestingly Micron has already more than 40,000 patents to its credit. With around 700+ employees currently at this newly launched Global Development Centre in Hyderabad, the aim is to increase this strength to 2,000 by next year or so. Micron is a well-established leader in the world with having its global standard manufacturing plants in 6 countries that include the United States, Japan, Malaysia, China, and Taiwan. In India, the focus is mainly on research and development. There are concrete plans to play a key role in contributing to the development of technologies behind breakthroughs in a wide range of areas like machine learning and artificial intelligence.
