Approximately 700 Cúram Software employees will join IBM’s Software Group
IBM has completed the acquisition of Cúram Software, which helps in expanding IBM’s ability to help cities and governments serve citizens better by adopting more intelligent and efficient ways to assess needs, execute social programmes, and maximise programme results.
IBM will enhance its ability to help clients increase the social and economic potential of people and their families, with the addition of the Cúram Research Institute, which is focused on deploying new business models for managing social programmes.
Under the acquisition, approximately 700 Cúram Software employees will join IBM’s Software Group.
The acquisition builds on IBM’s Smarter Cities initiatives and broadens IBM Ireland’s role. Through its Smarter Cities initiative, IBM helps cities and governments serve citizens better by adopting more intelligent and efficient ways to analyse data, anticipate problems and coordinate resources.
Cúram Software is used by health and human services, workforce services, and social security organisations to deliver welfare, social insurance and both individual and employer based social programmes and the Cúram Software Platform allows government and providers to focus on lowering overall programme costs, ensuring that the benefits and services provided address core issues.
