IBM Cloud Touts Latest European Partnerships

IBM Cloud July 3 announced it’s added six new European companies to its client list, with an  Italian multimedia publishing company and an electronics distributor among those looking to IBM for better access to AI, blockchain and analytics technologies.

Italy’s Gruppo 24 Ore, Spain’s Teckel Medical, The Netherlands’ Koopman Logistics, French bank Crédit Mutuel, the U.K.’s RS Components, and Germany’s Osram AG are the latest firms to add IBM Cloud’s services.

“Enterprises across Europe are gravitating to the IBM Cloud because it helps them modernize their existing infrastructures by gaining access to exciting technologies like AI, blockchain, IoT, analytics and more,” said Sebastian Krause, GM of IBM Cloud Europe. “At the same time, these companies value IBM’s deep industry and business process expertise, along IBM’s commitment to the responsible management of their enterprise data.”

The new partnerships come shortly after IBM Cloud announced the addition of nearly 20 new  “availability zones” in North America, Europe and Asia.
