IBM Israel receives PM Award

During his last visit to Israel, Andy Monshaw had an unexpected obligation – to join Meir Nissensohn, IBM Israel GM, to an official ceremony where IBM Israel was honored with the Prime Minister‘s Award for Economic Contribution.

IBM made three purchases in Israel this year, starting off with XIV in January ($350m), FilesX early April ($70m) and Diligent mid-April ($200m). IBM has been the first global corporations to open local offices in Israel, back in 1949. In 1972 Haifa Research Labs were opened, and grew to be the largest research facility of IBM outside the US – with over 1,000 researchers, working at three development labs (Storage, Software and Development).

KM and Collaboration User Forum – Sep 8

When you start getting questions from colleagues and customers about a user forum that we publicized using facebook alone, you begin to understand the power of this new media. In our FB event page there are 61 confirmed participants and additional 40 in maybe attending status – and there’s still a month to go. Here are the official details on our KM and Collaboration User Forum – Customer Talk, set for Monday, Sep. 8th, at IBM Israel.
