Mahindra Satyam to develop IT solutions for Kentucky

Summary:Commonwealth of Kentucky has signed India's Mahindra Satyam to develop a Microsoft Sharepoint based document management system for the child services.

Mahindra Satyam has been signed to provide document management system for the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s child support system.

The document management system to be designed is for Kentucky’s Cabinet of Health and Family Services. According to the press release, the system will be a Microsoft Sharepoint portal and enable accessing applications, court orders, and insurance documents.

In a statement from Mahindra Satyam’s president, Atul Kunwar, he said, “Our experience of working on various technology platforms enables us to offer a wide range of services to our clients. The document management solution to the Commonwealth of Kentucky will enable us to bring forth the experienced leaders to deliver the best possible product to the customer. Being Microsoft's gold partner ensures that we are abreast with the latest updates from Microsoft."

The people involved with Child Support Enforcement are set to benefit from the system. Jamie Miller from the Kentucky Health and Family Services said, "These improvements make it easier for non-custodial and custodial parents to get their questions answered and ultimately increase access to more resources in the care of their children."

While the state of Ohio made plans to ban outsourcing, it seems the state of Kentucky decided to get India’s Mahindra Satyam onboard. The deal does help soothe the nerves back in India due to the anti-outsourcing rhetoric in the States.

India’s External Affairs Minister, SM Krishna has said that outsourcing will be a topic on the agenda when President Obama tours India early next month.
