IBM Denmark plans to employ hundreds of people in 2005 according to communication manager of IBM in Denmark, Rikke Ploug Niemann. She also says, that the IT company continuously look at changes in customer needs and adjusts its business to fit these in the most efficient and productive way: "That was one of the reason why we acquired Mærsk Data and DMdata [two Danish companies –Ed] last year". In other countries in Europe, IBM is planning to downsize its workforce due to a disappointing Q1.

In 2004, IBM Denmark doubled its staff to more than 7,000 people when it acquired Mærsk Data and DMdata. After the takeover, the IT concern has continued to expand its workforce, and there is currently a need for more people in IBM Services. This unit comprises outsourcing and consultancy services. The news is reported by ComputerWorld.

IBM paid between DKK 3.5 bn (630 mn) and DKK 5 bn (USD 900 mn) for the total acquisition of Mærsk Data and DMdata, which ensured IBM revenues of IT services in Denmark worth around DKK 6 bn (USD 1.1 bn), and a market share of about 30% [December 2004].
