In an effort to offer better service to its customers, IBM is inaugurating a new techonology campus today in San Isidro, its second center in Peru.

“Today, businesses rely heavily on technology. For this reason, they are looking to make sure that their systems are available for as much of the time as possible, and this is what we want to insure with new spaces like this one that we are launching,” said Eduardo Sarmiento, service manager for IBM Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.

The new center will allow IBM to fulfill more of the demand for cloud computing, hosting and help services for the public and private sectors.

“This new investment is a part of our company growth strategy to consolide IBM Peru as a provider of high-value services,” said Jaime García, general manager for IBM Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.

This year marks a century since the founding of IBM (International Business Machines). Although many people believe that the company disappeared a few years when it stopped selling equipment for end users, the U.S.-based company has, in fact, remained economically solid, offering integral computing solutions for businesses. The original office in Peru, located in La Molina, has been operating continuously since 1932.
