Andromede cloud project raises competition issues - IBM

Wednesday 1 February 2012 | 11:59 CET | News
The French government's Andromede cloud computing project will distort competition, IBM France's CEO Alain Benichou told Les Echos. The public-private partnership with Orange and Thales to provide cloud computing services to government departments and private sector companies will reportedly be rivalled by a similar service to be set up by Dassault Systemes. Benichou said that IBM had invested USD 300 million to build data centres across France and is ready to serve customers in this market. He added that, having recently cut its prices, IBM was confident that its offer is competitive.
