A closer look at IBM
IBM In Singapore
IBM has always had a strong heritage of making substantive contributions to communities in which we work and live. Since IBM began operating in Singapore in 1953, our presence and investments in Singapore have grown many times over - in size and variety.
We have also actively aligned both our business and corporate citizenship activities to Singapore's Smart Nation agenda - including improving liveability and sustainability in urban environments, cultivating future ready skills and talents, and helping to build inclusive communities.
Today, IBM continues to make strategic investments in Singapore to deliver higher value to our clients. We are working with customers around the world to help them become cognitive businesses, by applying IBM's technology and expertise to unlock the value in data and uncover insight in every decision.
Wired to the Community
It's not all about business.
IBM has actively contributed in the areas of education, research and the transfer of technology to aid in upgrading the IT skills and resources of Singapore. The company's contribution totals over $10 million in equipment and more than 20 years of staff time.
Here are some examples IBM's involvement:
Institute of Systems Science: Singapore's premier institution for advanced IT education and R&D in the region today began as a partnership program between the National University of Singapore and IBM in 1981. IBM provided hardware, software as well as overseas expert assignees, visiting researchers and scientists to help ISS achieve international R&D capabilities. Today, the ISS has contacts with IBM development laboratories and R&D centers around the world.
IT Training Programme for Office Workers: Together with the National Computer Board and the National Productivity Board, IBM launched the IT Training Programme for Office Workers in 1988. The IBM-developed curriculum for this nationally certified IT course has benefitted tens of thousands of office workers.
Singapore Quality Award: IBM Singapore is a founder sponsor of the Singapore Quality Award (SQA). The award is instituted as a part of Singapore's national strategy to establish the country's reputation as a producer of quality goods and services. It also aims at motivating companies to achieve quality excellence. The Prime Minister is the patron of the Award.
