Lenovo Group Limited’s US$2.3 billion acquisition of International Business Machines (IBM) will be finalised by the end of this year.
This was reiterated by an IBM executive, Anthony Smith, during a workshop in Suva yesterday.
The event themed “Faster Future with Flash and winning in Transition” was organised by IBM’s local premier partner for over 30 years, Datec (Fiji) Limited.
The event held at Holiday Inn Suva was attended by more than 100 business clients.
Datec manager Sales Infrastructure Solutions, Mukhtar Ahmed, said the one day workshop was about informing customers about the IBM-Lenovo transition and new products that would be introduced in the Fijian market.
Mr Smith said: “Lenovo saw the opportunity to expand its business into the data center and IBM was in the market to sell its x86 business so it seemed like a good union.”
IBM believes that Lenovo’s proven strengths in scalability, operational efficiency and a broad channel presence combined with IBM innovation will deliver a win for IBM’s x86 clients and business partners.
“IBM’s strategic alliance with Lenovo spans decades, and has enabled us to collaborate in developing and delivering high-value solutions,” he said.
