Bangalore numbers

Bangalore is slowly moving ahead in terms of the software professional numbers.

- Almost a quarter of the 10,000-12,000 foreigners employed in the Silicon Capital of India are part of the IT industry
- Bangalore has 1,60,000 professionals working in the technology sector and the number is the largest in one place on the planet.
- While about 1,00,000 professionals work in IT companies, the remaining 60,000 are working in the ITES-BPO sector

- During 2003-04, the city attracted 168 new software exporting companies and 5 new electronic hardware exporting companies
- It's been projected that 40000 professionals will be added to the Bangalore city in next one year.

Why Bangalore is winning against other cities ?, I think the answer lies in the rapidly maturing eco-system and the weather.
