Mo. Governor Helps Cut Ribbon on New IBM Service Delivery Center

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon joined a group of IBM (NYSE: IBM) executives and local business and government leaders in cutting the ribbon on IBM’s new service delivery center in Columbia, Mo., last week.

“Creating high-quality, career-supporting jobs is the top priority of my administration, and IBM’s locating a new technology delivery center in mid-Missouri is a tremendous win for our state economy, ” Nixon said. “The creation of 800 new high-tech jobs is another indication of the strength of our rebounding economy.”

The new service delivery center will primarily support IBM’s U.S. IT-services clients, providing server systems operations, project management and security services. Employees will manage the servers and storage systems that are critical for assuring optimal information technology performance for IBM’s clients.

IBM will also look for opportunities to partner with the University of Missouri to enhance its curricula to better prepare students for opportunities in the IT industry, including the types of roles found at IBM.

“IBM’s technology services clients not only need a partner to manage their technology infrastructure, but one that can help them to solve global business challenges and uncover new opportunities for growth, ” said Tim Shaughnessy, senior vice president of IBM Services Delivery. “The center here in Columbia will employ the type of professional who can adapt to change, handle complexity and has the necessary analytical and technical proficiency to help our clients accomplish their goals by delivering high-value, quality information technology services.”
