BANGALORE: IBM has opened a specialized software and services lab in India to drive automation and virtualization into the increasingly complex IT infrastructures.

IBM said, the High Performance on Demand Solution Lab (HiPODS) will bring in value skills to help clients in India and the surrounding region to enhance and optimize their IT resources to support the growth of their businesses.

The new lab connects IBM's top consultants, developers, engineers and researchers in India and around the world, culminating the most comprehensive skills and resources available in the industry today.

The lab replicates client infrastructures so the team can customize solutions to get the best performance and business capabilities from their information technology.

The focus of the lab is to solve key client issues, including reducing the time needed to adapt IT infrastructures to rapidly changing business requirements; simplifying IT management and improving maintenance automation; optimizing resource utilization and improving reliability and service delivery.

"As the economy in India continues to grow at a rapid rate, the need for automation and boosting utilization across IT infrastructures is booming. The new HiPODS lab brings unique, high value skills from throughout India to drive transformation for local businesses," said, Willy Chiu, vice
president, High Performance On Demand Solutions at IBM, during the inauguration of the lab. "This new lab is essentially a gateway for clients in India to tap into the know-how of IBM's hundreds of software,
services and research labs around the world to bring IBM's deep business insights, technology know-how and vast experience of simplifying complex IT implementations for our clients."

"India today is not only one of the world's fastest growing economy but also a home to world class research and development work," said Harish Grama, vice president, IBM India Software Lab. "By setting up the HiPODS lab in India we can help both local clients and leverage the experiences
we gained in India to reach new markets and clients around the world."
