IBM plans to establish a global competence centre, Global Transportation and Logistics Competence Centre built on the combination of IBM and Maersk Data transport. According to IBM, the new centre will supply services to Denmark's largest shipping group A.P. Moller – Maersk and other global players in transport and logistics. The plan has been published in relation to last week's IBM acquisitions of Maersk Data, owned by the A.P. Moller – Maersk group, and DMdata owned by Maersk Data, Danske Bank and WM-data.

 

The acquisitions enable IBM to service customers in transport and logistics and will also strengthen its competencies in sectors such as healthcare, food and agriculture. Hans-Ulrich Maerki, general manager of IBM Europe says the Maersk Data Group and DMdata will bring very valuable competencies and solutions to IBM which enables the company to make a difference to A.P. Moller – Maersk, Danske Bank and other global customers.

 

Danske Bank has outsourced its IT operations to IBM for the next 10 years. The agreement means that IBM will upgrade all infrastructure of Danske Bank with new technologies with the aim of making cost reductions. The news is reported by IT online news ComOn.
