IBM In­dia axes 40 STG staffers


IBM In­dia has re­port­edly laid off 40 people from its Sys­tems Tech­nol­ogy Group (STG). This ac­tion fol­lows the com­pany’s de­ci­sion to sell off its vol­ume server busi­ness to Len­ovo a few weeks ago.

Many part­ners, CRN spoke to, opined that in the com­ing months more em­ploy­ees from STG could lose or quit their jobs. “Len­ovo is a com­pany that op­er­ates with tighter teams and hence it will not ab­sorb all the em­ploy­ees of IBM’s vol­ume server busi­ness. My best guess is that they will take 50-70 people from the ex­ist­ing team,” said a leading IBM part­ner, based in Mum­bai.

Ac­cord­ing to an­other IBM part­ner based in Ben­galuru, “Due to the pre­vail­ing un­cer­tainty about who Len­ovo will hire many good STG em­ploy­ees are look­ing out. IBM and Len­ovo should en­sure that these people don’t leave be­cause it will neg­a­tively im­pact their over­all busi­ness.”
