IBM is announcing intent to acquire Cúram Software Ltd. – the leading provider of solutions for social programs
In a move that extends IBM leadership in Smarter Cities, IBM announced intent to acquire Curam Software Ltd., the leading provider of solutions for social programs, including health & human services, workforce services, and social security organizations – bolstering Smarter Cities and the citizens they serve.
Cúram software is used in more than 80 government agency projects around the world to provide the timely access to the right social programs, deliver integrated services through those programs, and drive improved outcomes and reduced costs. The citizen-centered solutions address the increasing complexity and growing needs for social programs while delivering efficiency and improved outcomes.
Cúram’s capabilities and expertise will advance the IBM Smarter Cities initiative, which focuses on driving sustainable growth by leveraging information to make better decisions, anticipating problems to resolve them proactively, and coordinating resources and process to operate effectively. This acquisition will extend IBM’s ability to provide transformative business solutions and services to cities and governments globally.
Together, IBM and Cúram will help leaders around the world achieve breakthrough efficiency and new levels of citizen-centered service – delivering improved outcomes, total integrated service delivery and total cost reduction.
“We are committed to helping leaders in cities and governments at all levels improve efficiency and deliver improved outcomes, and increasingly improve the lives of their citizens,” said Craig Hayman, General Manager of IBM Industry Solutions. “People are facing increasing needs for social and health programs and leaders must innovate to improve delivery amid great demand. We are honored to provide solutions that help leaders deliver real value to the people they serve.”

Vestas Wind Systems turn to IBM Big Data
Danish energy company Vestas Wind Systems will use IBM big data analytics software and powerful IBM systems to improve wind turbine placement for optimal energy output. Turbine placement is a major challenge for the renewable energy industry, and Vestas expects to accelerate the adoption of wind energy internationally and expand its business into new markets by overcoming this challenge.
The final solution cut the processing time from 3
weeks to 15 minutes and cut server energy consumption by 40%.
Vestas is addressing the issue of turbine placement by using IBM BigInsights
software and an IBM "Firestorm" supercomputer to analyze petabytes of
structured and unstructured data such as weather reports, moon and tidal
phases, geospatial and sensor data, satellite images, deforestation maps, and
weather modeling research to pinpoint installation. The analysis, which used to
take weeks, can now be done in less than one hour.
