IBM opens in Ukraine
IBM has opened a subsidiary office in Ukraine to capitalise on the country’s growing IT market, which market research firm IDC estimates is worth around US$2 billion.
“IBM is very excited about Ukraine. We are excited about the business environment, market potential and out own business performance in the country,” said Brendon Riley, general manager of IBM in the region.
“Establishing a subsidiary office means that we are best positioned to serve the needs of our customers in Ukraine and offer them the best possible value, expertise and technology.”
To mark the establishment of the new subsidiary, IBM launched its Academic Initiative in the Ukraine. The initiative is a global programme to provide universities with support and resources for students to gain skills in open standards such as Java.
