IBM India plans to focus on education
India continues to be on the priority list for IBM. The IT major has registered a growth of 37 per cent year-on-year in 2006, in India. Sources attributed the success to servers, storage, software and services.

The tech major has seen more than 30 per cent year-on-year growth in India during the last four years. With the market posting 14-15 per cent growth, IBM has grown more than twice the market, according to top officials at IBM's India facility.

IBM currently employs as many as 53,000 in India. The company has also become the biggest MNC software exporter in India. The company, announcing its plans for 2007, has said that investments in education will remain a key focus. IBM will extend its KidSmart program and university relations initiatives across India, and create unique opportunities for its employees to contribute to social causes through volunteer and grants programs, it has been announced.

The company has also imparted training on open standards based technologies to more than 80,000 students in over 745 colleges in India during 2006. Its ‘great mind challenge' saw participation from over 700 colleges involving 21,000 students and 3,900 faculty from 24 states, reports said.

IBM has also said that it will play host to Global Innovation Outlook (GIO) 3.0 summit in Mumbai. The meet is expected to focus on identifying emerging business, technology and social trends that will lead to thought leadership and collaborative commercial opportunities for IBM, its clients and its partners.
