IBM’s Latest Creation: a Services Innovation Lab

After celebrating 100 years, IBM still moves forward as they announced the creation of Services Innovation Lab.  The lab will consist of 200 hand-picked technology experts from different sectors of the company that will focus on cloud computing, analytics, service delivery automation and mobility, bringing “services as a science.”  SIL will operate at IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Center in New York, Almaden in San Jose and other outposts in China, Israel, India, Japan, Switzerland and Brazil.

“Our singular focus is to help our clients capitalize on technologies that solve problems and create new possibilities,” said Mike Daniels, senior vice president and group executive, IBM Services.

“Creation of the Services Innovation Lab demonstrates how we at IBM differentiate our capabilities vs. competition. We harness the best of what IBM research and development can deliver in science and engineering to help our clients be more innovative.”

This project is aimed at helping the community to have a better quality of life by bringing innovations and inventions closer to people, while still maintaining a work environment suitable for growth and progress of its employees.

Other recent IBM highlights include 50 years of their Selectric typewriter, the predecessor of today’s word-processing programs, making writing papers a breeze back then. Some internal updates include the replacement of IBMs global head of corporate development Elias Mendoza,  by Kevin Reardon as head of mergers and acquisitions in a move to keep the company competitive.  And finally, after IBM and Pinnacle Data Systems Inc. entered in a partnership, stocks for Pinnacle skyrocketed to  81.68% at $2.50.   Pinnacle will design and sell products based on IBM’s System p and System x technologies.
