IBM claims that, despite plans to wind down its Internet division (see previous story), it will keep the unit open until the millennium.
One hundred software developers - about 20 per cent of the division's staff - were shifted to a larger software unit two weeks ago. But officials at the company said that the Internet group would remain intact until well after the millenium.
?We have moved about 100 people but it does not signal the fact that we are planning to dissolve the Internet group,? said Kate Bousquet from IBM?s European headquarters in Paris.
According to Bousquet, the division was originally set up by president Lou Gerstner to access market opportunities and bring "thought leadership" to the organisation. ?It will remain an incubator for products and technology,? said Bousquet.
