IBM says it is investing more than $10 million in its New Zealand cloud capability to meet the evolving needs of public sector agencies and private organisations.

The commitment will bring two new cloud managed service solutions to New Zealand, which will be offered from two North Island locations, including IBM’s $80 million Auckland datacentre at Highbrook.

The announcement follows IBM’s plan to invest $1.2 billion for a global cloud network.

“Organisations that will benefit from this new onshore capability include businesses and government agencies that are deploying cloud services to market, selling and developing products, managing their supply chain and transforming their business practices,” says Kate Tulp, strategic outsourcing executive, IBM New Zealand.
