International Business Machines Corporation and Nova Scotia Team to Invest in Future Economic Growth
Nov 8 12
The Government of Nova Scotia and International Business Machines Corporation, in close partnership with Nova Scotia Business Inc. and a consortium of six higher education institutions, led by Nova Scotia Community College, announced new agreements to establish an IBM Global Delivery Centre, create up to 500 new highly skilled jobs and nurture "economy of tomorrow" analytics skills within Nova Scotia. As a result of the agreement, IBM will create a new Canadian delivery centre for application services to be located in Halifax, with services also delivered from Sydney. It is the first IBM centre of its kind in Canada. The new centre will become part of IBM's global network of delivery centres that provide application development and support services to manage and transform IT systems for local government departments, businesses and universities. In an associated ten-year deal, IBM and the Province have agreed that IBM will provide SAP application management services for Nova Scotia's Core Competency Centre (CCC) and Health Administrative Services Program (HASP) programs. IBM will extend job offers to all seventy-five government employees who are currently managing these services. These employees will have an opportunity to grow and expand their highly valued skills within Nova Scotia as members of one the world's largest, most experienced global services teams. In parallel, IBM is making a multi-million dollar investment and collaborating with Nova Scotia Community College, Dalhousie University, Acadia University, Cape Breton University, Saint Francis Xavier University and St. Mary's University to create a province-wide centre of excellence in analytics education, certification, training and research. The collaboration will deliver post-secondary analytics curriculum to produce workers with the analytics skills that are in high demand, train graduates in skills to make them more employable, and retrain valuable workers with aging skill-sets. IBM's move to bring jobs and employees to Nova Scotia as part of the new investments is intended to create up to 500 new jobs over the next eight years.
