Today was a very important day for IBM in Da Nang. IBM opened a new office in Da Nang – the third IBM office in Vietnam and the first office since opening the Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi offices in 1996. The IBM Da Nang office is one of 10 new IBM offices to open in IBM ASEAN in 2012, bringing the total number of offices in IBM ASEAN to 34 by the end of 2012.
IBM held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception with speeches by several IBM executives including Tim Wong and John Gallagher as well as local dignitaries in the morning. This was followed by an open house of the new office space and great discussion with clients and other IBMers who attended the event. The IBM team in Da Nang is very excited to have dedicated office space in one of the most sought after office locations in the city – in the Indochina Tower office right in the center of the city, on the waterfront.
The food safety team spent the afternoon honing our final presentation and recommendations for the city of Da Nang as well as preparing to host a collaborative inter-departmental Key Performance Indicator (KPI) workshop tomorrow. We are very excited to be hosting this workshop and are looking forward to getting the departments working together for the advancement of Da Nang as a smarter city, using the information they are already collecting in more insightful and intelligent ways.
