IBM Launching Philippines R&D Lab

IBM and the Philippines have signed an agreement to build the country’s first research and development laboratory for systems and technology, the company announced Thursday.

This year marks the 75th year of the company’s presence in the Philippines, said Mariels Almeda Winhoffer, president and country general manager.

The center aligns with the Filipino government’s strategic growth initiative that calls for increased partnerships between government and industry regarding business process outsourcing, anti-corruption governance, talent development and innovation for a knowledge-based economy.

Initial projects could also include weather and landslide prediction, crime prevention, traffic management, e-governance systems and computing and business analytics.

IBM said it will work closely with the federal Department of Science and Technology through a variety of research programs and activities.
