The Centre, an extension of the India Software Laboratory, was dedicated to advancing IBM's global Autonomic Computing initiative, which had worked for the past five years to reduce complexity by automating processes and building intelligence into IT systems.
The centre would work closely with IBM's worldwide Software Development Laboratories, particularly those in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA, and Toronto, Canada, to provide worldwide autonomic solutions. The Centre would function closely with the IBM India Research Laboratory, with sites in New Delhi and Bangalore, which conduct advanced autonomic research, a company release here said.
India Software Laboratory Vice-President Harish Grama said ''self-managing autonomic technologies are needed by clients in many industries across the globe, but it's particularly relevant for Indian, ASEAN and Asia Pacific companies that are experiencing rapid growth...The new Autonomic Computing Centre in Bangalore further expands IBM's research and development presence in India and improves our ability to meet local customer and partner needs.''
