Like many other tech giants, International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) was trying to get a big chunk of the cloud market. IBM is currently partnering with New York City (NYC) in developing a website to help the tech startups and enable the communication between startups, job seekers, investors and industry leaders. Details of the International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM)’s venture with NYC was published in a Bloomberg article.
The new web portal developed by a New York based company, Gust is called as Digital.NYC. Bill de Blasio, NYC Mayor said about the web portal’s capability earlier today in Brooklyn. He mentioned that portal will help entrepreneurs find the needed talents, resources and information. He added that the portal would provide job availability details in more than 6000 tech companies.
Gust uses the International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM)’s Cloud technology, ‘Bluemix’. The Digital.NYC portal was developed to work in sync with the NYC Economic Development Corp. Any updates in the Economic Development Corp. would immediately get reflected in the portal.
“This is the first of its kind anywhere in the world, a public-private partnership to really bring all of the aspects of the industry together,” Blasio was quoted as saying.
The site also connects to various media sites and grabs needed information and contents from these media sites. International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM)’s Cloud technology is an added advantage to the project.
The web portal Digital.NYC was developed from the older initiatives like ‘Made in NY Digital’ and ‘We are Made in NY’ Campaign. Both the older initiatives were created by former Mayor and Majority owner of Bloomberg News, Michael Bloomberg.
Among the shareholders of International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) is Berkshire Hathaway, led by Warren Buffett. As of 30 June, 2014, they hold around 70 million company shares.
