IBM Corp is set to invest RM1 billion over the next six years to build a new information technology Global Delivery Centre in Cyberjaya.

The centre, expected to create some 3,000 jobs, will provide competency-based services, multilingual capabilities and serve as a centre of excellence for software distribution and packaging.

The initiative was one of the nine entry-point projects announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) update here today.

IBM Malaysia managing director Ramanathan Sathiamutty said with the addition of the new centre, IBM has established 20 global delivery centres worldwide.

The centre in Malaysia will offer clients various industries across the globe, especially the American and Europe server systems operations, security services project management and end-user services including maintenance and monitoring of computer hardware and software systems, he told a media briefing here today.

"We selected Malaysia for our newest facility based on the strong public-private partnership in the country and Cyberjaya, its competitive business model, and the talents and skills Malaysians have to offer," said Patt Cronin, IBM Corp's general Manager for Global Technology Delivery and Delivery Excellence.

Multimedia Development Corporation will be working closely with IBM to identify and place qualified candidates under MSC Malaysia K-Workers Development Initiatives at the new Global Delivery Centre.

"IBM will also work with local recruiting firms and university alumni offices for the recruitment rocess to commence in January 2012," Cronin said.

The centre will operate in a temporary building with 700 employees in January next year.

"The new 10-storey green building in Cyberjaya will have its ground-breaking ceremony in the first quarter of next year and is expected to be completed by the third quarter 2013.

"Over a six-year period, we will be employing some 3,000 skilled workers at the global delivery centre and most of the employees will be locals," she added.
