I.B.M. is opening a research center in Nairobi, adding an African lab to its global network.
Kenya will be the fourth nation where I.B.M. has opened a research outpost in the last two years, after Ireland, Australia and Brazil. The Nairobi center will bring the number of I.B.M. research labs worldwide to 12. By now, about half the company’s 3,000-member research staff is outside the United States.
“I.B.M. has not only one of the few major corporate research programs standing, but it is expanding,” said Richard Doherty, an analyst at the Envisioneering Group, a technology research firm.VENDOR POWER
