IBM Taps China’s Engineers to Develop Linux Software

International Business Machines Corp. opened a center today for computing systems in Beijing to help customers and outside software engineers develop business applications for the open-source Linux operating system.

The facility will aid creation of programs for big data, cloud, mobile and social-business computing and represents “a sizable investment,” Colin Parris, general manager of IBM Power Systems, said in an interview. He declined to say how much the company spent or how many workers were employed.
