U.S.-based IT giant IBM opened a Business Innovation Center in Cracow, southern Poland, in October. The new facility will provide Polish companies with IBM technology and expertise to help them take full advantage of digital infrastructure in some rapidly developing sectors of the economy such as banking, healthcare, energy and telecommunications.

"Cracow has for years given priority to innovation, and the city's universities have been working to develop advanced technology and know-how," said Anna Sieńko, general manager of IBM Polska. "In 2005, IBM opened a Software Laboratory in Cracow and the new center is the next step in expanding our cooperation with the city of Cracow aimed at building a local information community."

The Cracow Business Innovation Center is IBM's first project of this kind in Central and Eastern Europe. It combines the functions of a traditional IBM Innovation Center for business partners and academia with those of an Executive Briefing Center responsible for producing detailed briefings for managers concerning the use of new technology to achieve business goals. The facility is also an IBM Technology Exploration Center where customers can learn about IBM technologies and solutions and try them out.

"The center is an important step toward delivering wiser solutions to Poland to help make infrastructure in key sectors more efficient," said Eric van der Schilden, director of the IBM Software Laboratory in Cracow. "The center will provide customers with access to IBM know-how and leading IBM technologies to stimulate their business growth."

IBM says its network of partners in Poland brings together more than 1,600 retailers, solution integrators and independent software dealers.
