IBM concludes consultancy tour

23 June 2014, 15:14

Nairobi - Experts from the international information technology firm, IBM, have concluded a month-long consulting assignment in the country where they provided problem-solving support to national government agencies, educational institutions and non-governmental organizations.

Similar experts, a total of 42, were sent to Ghana and Morocco as part of IBM's Corporate Service Corps, which provides problem-solving support to national and local government agencies in emerging markets, as well as to civic, social, education and business organizations in those places.

 Africa, a growing market for IBM, is one of the focal points for IBM Corporate Service Corps.

In particular, the IBM experts felt that government agencies may benefit from methodologies and technologies that enable large amounts of information big data, to be gathered and analyzed, then stored, shared, delivered and updated virtually, via the digital cloud.

The team of IBM Corporate Service Corps experts trained 50 students and software developers looking to enhance their technical and entrepreneurial skills.

Leading training sessions at Strathmore University's iLabAfrica, IBM experts provided in-depth instruction on the latest software application development, project management, product development and commercialization skills.

“The sessions supported Kenya's goals to enhance youth employment as part of the county's Vision 2030 development plan, and complimented the mission of IBM's Africa Skills Initiative, which helps cultivate skills on the African continent,” said the IBM experts in a statement.
