IBM boosts hiring in Ohio
As the world of big data continues to expand, companies know they must find ways not only to store these files, but also to make meaningful use of the information kept therein. IBM has announced it will be expanding its analytics presence in Ohio in order to cater to both American and international companies facing this dilemma.
The VAR Guy reported that IBM will be adding 500 people over the next three years as it converts the old Sterling Commerce technical campus into an IBM Advanced Analytics Center. The site, located in Columbus, Ohio, is one of eight current analytics campuses the company runs around the world and comprises part of its network of more than 200 global customer service centers. The new employees will be bolstering IBM's data analytics functions, for faster turnover of corporate information and higher levels of accuracy as well.
This center also creates a chance to foster a new level of understanding about analytics and corporate data processing, Forbes wrote. IBM announced its Columbus data center will be working in tandem with Ohio State University to bring students and staff into its discussions and teach the next generation of technology personnel how to work with modern data resources.
