Michael Baumann, Vice President of the Academics Business Unit: “This is a unique win-win situation for all parties, we are pleased that we have been able to win Jens Weckbach. He knows both companies and their product portfolios thoroughly and will be crucial in optimizing asknet’s cooperation with IBM. We will also explore possibilities for cooperation in new, forward-looking sectors such as applications based on artificial intelligence.”
The “Champions for Growth“ program was initiated by IBM for the purpose of deploying employees to partner companies for a limited period of time in order to establish a platform for the exchange of knowledge and expertise that benefits both parties.
