IBM to close its office in Cyberjaya on May 31
IBM will be shutting down its Global Delivery Centre (GDC) located in Cyberjaya as part of restructuring efforts, closing the seven-year-old facility come May 31.
The Edge Markets reported that the closure of the centre would not impact the tech giant’s other operations in Malaysia, including the head offices located in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya.
“IBM remains committed to Malaysia and will continue to focus on building its capacity and capability to help our clients on their hybrid cloud and AI (artificial intelligence) journeys; and the nation in its pursuit to be a knowledge-based society as set out in the Digital Economy Blueprint,” according to a spokesperson.
They declined to comment on whether the closure of the centre would result in job losses.
IBM announced the opening of its GDC back in 2011, which was estimated to create around 3,000 jobs.
It invested RM1bil in the centre that serviced clients around the globe, particularly in the United States and Europe.
