The New Star on the Horizon

Trivandrum is Kerala's capital city. Crowded and chaotic just like any other Indian city but nonetheless, touristic. Its major claim to fame is the renowned Kovalam beach, a favourite haunt of foreigners, just 15 kilometres away. However, with tourism in Kerala having expanded deep into the state, perhaps Kovalam may have lost a bit of its sheen in recent times. With the setting up of Technopark 7 years ago, Trivandrum may well be on its way in earning a new sobriquet of "Kerala's Knowledge Capital."

Technopark isn't another IT corridor, with high-rises shoving each other, jostling for space. Like the string of coconut palms that dot the sandy shores along the West Coast. Technopark is an environment-friendly IT campus; spread across 156 acres of green and by itself symbolizes "God's Own Country." Its an integration of Kerala culture with technology, set amidst caringly manicured lawns, thick forests, mirror-finish roads that wind their way around a hillock overlooking the Arabian Sea, yonder. Technopark is home to over 60 IT companies, a total workforce of some 6000 professionals, and hardly surprising that so much of innovation is happening in this inspirational and exciting campus. Not many know that Technopark is India's first technology park and is among the three largest parks in the country. That it was the first park in India to obtain ISO 9002 certification. The infrastructure at Technopark is awesome. It offers multiple options for Internet connectivity and in place is an optical fibre network with redundancies at all levels. Self-sufficient so far as power and water are concerned, with its own internal dedicated power distribution system and backup diesel generators. Then of course, there are a host of support services within the campus, that include Conference Halls with Video Conferencing facilities, Library and Information Bureau, a Club, Guest House, Amphitheatre, Swimming Pool, Restaurants and Healthcare Centre.
