IBM draws on skilled workforce to grow cloud, collaboration and analytics software
News

Technology giant IBM is to create 110 new jobs as it expands its IBM Ireland Analytics and Solutions Lab.

The expansion will enable the advancement of cloud social collaboration and HR analytics software that help organisations build and maintain a smarter workforce.

New jobs will be created for high value software engineering roles at the development lab which has offices in Dublin, Cork and Galway.

Recruitment for graduate and experienced computer scientists is expected to start in the coming weeks.

“The Ireland Lab together with our research and development labs around the world are helping companies tap into the power of social networking to transform the way they work and innovate over their competitors,” said Debbie Landers, IBM general manager, Kenexa and Smarter Workforce.

“By combining social, behavioural science and analytics in the cloud, we give businesses a clear path to empower their most valued asset – employees,” she said.

According to a recent IBM study that surveyed chief HR executives representing 18 industries, many businesses are not taking full advantage of the insights delivered by workforce big data and analytics. The study also found that human resources executives are in the early stages of applying social approaches within their organisation.

IBM Kenexa Talent Insights, powered by IBM Watson Analytics, allows organisations build deep insights into their HR data. IBM Kenexa BrassRing on Cloud is a global leader in applicant tracking systems and is used by many large and successful organisations around the world to attract, engage and hire top talent. IBM Smarter workforce is offered as a suite of capabilities hosted on IBM’s Cloud.
