IBM opened a new Autonomic Computing Technology Center here, created “to

address the overwhelming demand from India-based business partners and customers

for self-managing technology and systems,” according to an IBM statement.

The new center is an extension of the India Software Laboratory. It is

dedicated to advancing IBM's global Autonomic Computing initiative, which has

worked for the past five years to reduce complexity by automating processes and

building intelligence into IT systems.

The center employs more than 35 developers and engineers who are responsible

for creating new autonomic software, testing and supporting services and

providing enablement support for local clients, business partners and academic



The center works closely with IBM's worldwide Software Development

Laboratories, particularly those in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA

and Toronto, Canada to provide worldwide autonomic solutions, the statement


The Autonomic Computing Technology Center in India will also work closely

with the IBM India Research Laboratory, with sites in New Delhi and Bangalore,

which conducts advanced autonomic research.

"Self-managing autonomic technologies are needed by clients in many

industries across the globe but it's particularly relevant for Indian, ASEAN and

Asia Pacific companies that are experiencing rapid growth," said Harish

Grama, VP of the India Software Laboratory.

"The new Autonomic Computing center in Bangalore further expands IBM's

research and development presence in India and improves our ability to meet

local customer and partner needs," he added in the statement.

The new Autonomic Computing Technology Center joins an existing center that

IBM opened in the Yamato Software Development Laboratory, in Japan in July 2005.
