The acquisition of Cúram Software Ltd. expands IBM’s ability to help cities and governments serve citizens better by adopting more intelligent and efficient ways to assess needs, execute social programs, and maximize program results. Cúram, which means "care and protection" in Irish, was founded in 1990 and is based in Dublin, Ireland.

Cúram Software is used in more than 80 government agency projects around the world to provide the most appropriate social programs to citizens and their families in a timely manner, deliver services more effectively and continuously monitor progress toward achieving people's social and economic potential. The software is used by health and human services, workforce services, and social security organizations around the world to deliver welfare, social insurance and both individual and employer based social programs.

Cúram Software allows cities and governments to provide a single view of benefits and services available across agencies, levels of government and private and not-for-profit organizations. The Social Industry Platform includes processes to deliver all types of programs and offers the flexibility needed to quickly update them as policy makers react to different economic times.
