IBM Opens Three New Offices in India

IBM has announced the opening of three regional offices in India as part of the company’s on-going geographic expansion in the country. The new offices in Dehradun (North India), Guwahati (Eastern India) and Raipur (Central India) provide IBM with a footprint of 18 branch offices across India to date.

IBM is currently focused on increasing its presence in smaller, rapidly developing Indian cities as part of its plan to establish a presence in 40 Indian cities by 2013. By extending its network of regional branches, IBM is strengthening its ability to deliver more advanced technologies and services to its clients across the country. IBM is experiencing particular demand for information management, security, cloud computing and business analytics solutions as businesses and government organizations turn to IT to reduce costs and gain competitive advantage.

As a key part of its growth strategy, IBM is investing in the education system in these regions with a number of partnerships and academic initiatives especially to support the growth of Open Source technologies. For example, IBM is partnering with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Guwahati to foster innovation and promote local technology talent. 

Small and medium enterprises have long been the engines driving economic growth across India and play a key role in regional development. IBM is committed to the success of this segment and is working its business partners to provide small and medium enterprises with the tools they need to compete in a global economy.  

IBM has a number of existing clients in Dehradun, Guwahati and Raipur where it is focused on banking, education, government, energy, manufacturing, industry and IT sectors.  Some of IBM’s clients in these regions include Vandana Global and Jindal Steel in Raipur as well as Kurmanchal Bank and Uttarakhand Power Corporation in Dehradun. Key to India’s regional development is the cooperative bank segment where IBM is working a number of leading players across the country such as Nawanagar Cooperative Bank, Latur Cooperative Bank and Karad Cooperative Bank.
