IBM in La Gaude : the new Internet architects
Here are some news in La Gaude about the way IBM is seeking to revolutionize communications technology. So, Guillaume d'Eyssautier, IBM Technology Group Vice-President for Europe, Middle-East and Africa will lead on Wednesday November 15th at the IBM Research and Development Center for communications a seminar on the 'new Internet architects' theme. 'The future description of Internet and companies activities will depend on these management units of outstanding networks,someone explains. Aware of this stake, IBM has just announced a 5 billion dollars investment in order to assure its customers, leaders on their market, that they will get components that suit their needs.'Several IBM participants as well as customers will come to present new products that IBM has produced for the new Internet era (specialized processors, optical technologies, data carrying, etc.). And in order to see Internet solutions at work, a visit in laboratories is planned. The heart of the 'e-business' is in turmoil at the moment. It reached such a point that the renting plan of the 9000 m2 offices that were at the start-ups disposal has been abandoned : IBM La Gaude needs today some much place for their own activities !
