It said the opening of the new centres is in response to the changing e-business environment in which companies have a much greater focus on getting a financial return on their investment and reducing the risk of e-business adoption. Using the centers helps end users to minimise the disruption to their day-to-day operations while building e-business applications, Intel said.
Existing services include analysing an end user's hardware and software requirements, and optimising and stress-testing their e-business applications. Intel is also making new services available under the program including tuning, infrastructure services, server stack integration, migration, network design and management, and architectural design, the company said.
Intel has previously opened five test centres in the US, one centre in China, and centres in Moscow, Grenoble, and Tokyo.
