Bangalore: IBM opened a new Autonomic Computing Technology Center that will address the overwhelming demand from India-based business partners and customers for technology and systems that are self-managing.

The Center will employ more than 35 developers and engineers who will be responsible for creating new autonomic software, testing and supporting services, and providing support for local clients, business partners and academic institutions.

Vice President of the India Software Laboratory, 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.” He further added that the new Autonomic Computing center will expand IBM's research and development presence in India and improves the ability to meet local customer and partner needs.

The new center builds on already strong autonomic computing momentum in India. In September 2006, a dozen India-based solution providers joined IBM’s Autonomic Computing Business Partner initiative and are working to incorporate IBM's self-managing autonomic technology into their software and solutions.

The Autonomic Computing Technology Center in India joins an existing center that IBM opened in the Yamato Software Development Laboratory, in Japan in July 2005. Over the past two years, the Japan center has developed autonomic components, tools and offerings for problem determination solutions; provided support for local IBM clients and business partners; and helped drive progress around standardization. Since the Japan center opened, it has been working closely with the IBM India Software Development Laboratory. This collaboration will continue with the Autonomic Computing Technology Center in India.

IBM has the broadest portfolio of autonomic-enabled products, services and solutions in the industry, with more than 500 self-managing autonomic features in 75 distinct IBM products.
