The company is to open a new multilingual Software Services Operation Centre

UP TO 40 new jobs are to be created in a new operations centre at IBM’s Dublin campus, in the second ‘big data’ jobs announcement today.

“The centre will integrate and interconnect information from our software engagements around the world, enabling us to apply analytics, process innovation and experience to get closer to our clients,” said IBM’s Director of Worldwide Services & Education Operations Michelle Ginther.

“We can offer clients a greater involvement in the design and development of our software offerings and a more personalised engagement with our services.”

IDA CEO Barry O’Leary welcomed the announcement, highlighting IBM’s continued votes of confidence in Ireland, with Jobs Minister Richard Bruton noting that the Action Plan for Jobs specifically aims towards “supporting the high growth areas of cloudcomputing and Big Data”.
