Tech giant, IBM, today said it will create 50 jobs in Dublin as part of a new E20 million investment in its Irish operations.
The announcement was made at the opening of a state-of-the-art European Digital Sales Centre at the IBM Technology Campus in Mulhuddart, Dublin.
The Centre is IBM's largest multi-language client engagement centre worldwide. It brings together a specialist IT salesforce working in 19 languages and is a focal point for clients in 21 countries across Europe.
IBM has been in Ireland since 1956 and first established a European Sales Centre in Dublin in 1996. The company currently employs about 3,000 people in Ireland. The new facility was opened by the Tanaiste Joan Burton.
"IBM is the longest established multinational in the country and one of our biggest employers. I am very proud that IBM has chosen Ireland as a location to develop and push the boundaries of technological innovation over the past 60 years," she said.
"I am sure this next chapter in the IBM story, with the opening of its digital sales centre, will redefine how the industry interacts with its clients and partners," Ms Burton added.
