IBM announced a new IBM Digital Delivery Centre at its Technology Campus in Damastown, Dublin in November 2017. The new Centre includes IBM iX, one of the largest global digital agencies, and it supports IBM clients in Ireland as they continue to adapt to an increasingly digital world.

IBM iXis a next-generation experience design and digital consultancy. It brings together a unique combination of strategy, consulting, creative and design, analytics and systems integration capabilities to create and deliver personalisedexperiences at every touch point to drive growth and transform the way individuals engage with brands.

"IBM Digital Delivery Centre in Dublin has been created to support our clients in Ireland and to leverage existing and emerging digital technologies in order to create a better tomorrow for their customers. Our investment in people and skills is underpinned by our highly effective agile and iXcustomer focused design methodologies", said Paul Murphy, IBM Global Services Leader, Ireland.

The Centre provides clients with leading design and implementation skills across a range of digital technologies including AI, data insights, machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud. IBM iXteams will apply creativity and use IBM Design Thinking to solve business problems.

At IBM iXwe use disruptive thinking, visioning workshops, and cross-industry expertise to help our clients to imagine the realm of the possible and redefine their company's role. We design the businesses that will shape the world for years to come and then we help our clients make them real.

Summary of research
IBM Research Scientists are working on concept cloud technology with potential to reduce costs for providers and users

These changes to the infrastructure are transparent to applications, so developers can keep building applications with the tools they are familiar with and deploy them to the Cloud as usual. The ultimate advantages of this disaggregation of CPU and memory are manifold. More requests can be served with the same amount of resources and memory-centric applications are no longer limited to the memory of a single server. You can also independently upgrade processors and memory, bringing agility and full modularity to the service provider.

We work in key high-value segments of the IT industry, including cloud, AI, security, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IOT). We also develop industry specific software solutions for healthcare, banking and telecommunications.

Our lab employees hold doctorate and master degrees in science, engineering, mathematics, design, or related fields, participate in international conferences, are published in professional publications and are actively involved in teaching at Ireland's higher education institutions. Many employees have received patents and IBM awards for their business achievements and technical excellence. Working closely with design and digital media the lab also serves as a focal point for the design community in Ireland.

In keeping with our innovation ethos and work practices, IBM Ireland Lab engages in collaborative research with business partners and academia through our Innovation Exchange division. The aim of our Innovation Exchange is to engage and connect external collaborators with our lab technology experts and our IBM ecosystem. The Exchange helps collaborators to transform the design, development, and delivery of their products, services, applications and software-enabled research.

Our joint client and business partner projects include, but are not limited to, the domains of health, banking, retail, food & agriculture, citizen to government collaboration, education, tourism and cultural heritage.
