IBM in China IBM&#39;s business relationship with China has a long history. In 1934, IBM Corporation for a Beijing Union Medical College Hospital installed the first commercial processor. In 1979, nearly 30 years after breaking off contact, IBM along with China&#39;s reform and opening up to China again. In the same year in Shenyang Blower Factory installed after the founding of the PRC&#39;s first medium-sized IBM computer. ? With the deepening of China&#39;s reform and opening up, IBM expanding operations in China. The late 80s, IBM in Beijing, Shanghai opened an office. In Beijing in 1992, IBM announced the creation of IBM China Company Limited, which is IBM-owned enterprise in China. This will enable IBM in implementing its strategy in China has taken a substantial step, opened a new chapter of business in China. Followed in 1993, IBM China Company Limited has set up in Guangzhou and Shanghai branch. So far, IBM offices in China and further extended to Harbin, Shenyang, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Chengdu, Xi&#39;an, Wuhan, Fuzhou, Chongqing, Changsha, Kunming, Urumqi, Jinan, Tianjin, Zhengzhou, Hefei, Nanchang, Nanning , Ningbo, Shijiazhuang and other 24 cities, further expansion of business coverage in China. Along with IBM in China, IBM China&#39;s growing staff, currently has more than 8500 people. In addition, IBM has also set up nine joint ventures and wholly-owned, were responsible for manufacturing, software development, service and rental operations. ? IBM is focused on R &amp; D investment. In 1995, IBM set up in China, China Research Center, IBM is one of the world&#39;s eight major research centers, the existing more than 200 Chinese computer experts. Then in 1999 was the first in China, set up a software development center, the existing 2,000 Chinese software engineers specializing in integration middleware, database, Linux and other areas of product development. ? 20 years, IBM&#39;s various information systems have become the financial, telecommunications, metallurgy, petrochemical, transportation, commodity, government and education, and many important business areas of the most reliable means of information technology. IBM&#39;s customers in China&#39;s economy on all fronts. ? At the same time, IBM in a number of important areas occupy the leading market share, including: servers, storage, services, software. ? Taken from society to society, for the benefit of mankind, is the principle upheld by IBM. IBM actively supports China&#39;s education and activities in the community have an excellent performance. ? IBM partnerships with universities can be traced back to the beginning of 1984, the year IBM made a series of Chinese university computer equipment hardware and software donations. March 1995, to IBM and the Chinese State Education Commission (now Ministry) signed a memorandum of understanding to sign, &quot;IBM university cooperation projects in China,&quot; the official launch, the long-term comprehensive cooperation between the basic objective is to strengthen the Chinese universities in the information disciplines in science and technology building and personnel training. 12 years, IBM university cooperation projects in China continue to move toward a higher level, a deeper and broader areas of development, China&#39;s university disciplines of information technology related professional development and personnel training have played a positive role. Since 1995, IBM has donated a Chinese university more than 1.5 billion yuan worth of computer equipment, software and services. Cooperation projects in college, now has more than 50 famous universities in China has established cooperative relations. 570,000 people participated in the IBM technology-related student learning and training courses, 5.8 million students worldwide professional certification IBM, more than 4,000 people participated in the IBM organization of teachers of different forms of teacher training. ? In addition to the education sector in the field of higher education cooperation with China beyond, IBM will also actively expand the scope of cooperation to the field of basic education. Following the 2001 IBM KidSmart &quot;Little Explorers&quot; project in early childhood intellectual development since the introduction of China, IBM has been in China for 6 years of the project. IBM has now spread to all provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions of the city&#39;s nearly 68 430 preschool institutions to cooperate, donated 2,350 sets of KidSmart children&#39;s computer learning center. ? Since 2003, IBM further cooperation with the Ministry of Education in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu, carried out in 20 primary schools Reinventing Education &quot;Teaching Basic Education Innovation Project&quot;, to take more and more valuable forms of support to foreign mature the experience and resources into China, and the full light of China&#39;s current situation and needs, better use of IT tools to help schools improve the teaching effect. ? Through these two projects, a total of 10 000 more than the backbone of the field of basic education teachers have received free training in IBM, 10 million children benefit. ? In 2003, IBM TryScience Around the World &quot;broad view of science&quot; young science project was officially launched in China. Through this project, IBM donated to the China Science and Technology Museum computer terminal, the terminal high-speed network and remote server and the server connected to the rich content presented to Science Museum visitors. &quot;Looking to see science&quot; covers the ecological archeology, space exploration, extreme sports, and other marine life for young people open a contact with science knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts of the new door. Currently, IBM has 11 cities of the Science and Technology Museum donated 40 sets of IBM TryScience Kiosk Multimedia Terminal. IBM in China for the excellent performance and outstanding contributions to the media for the IBM is affirmed. IBM has been named &quot;China&#39;s Most Admired Companies&quot; and &quot;China&#39;s most respected foreign-invested enterprises&quot;, &quot;China&#39;s most valuable brands&quot;, &quot;Best employers&quot;. In 2004, IBM China Company was the &quot;Fortune&quot; magazine named the Chinese version of &quot;the most admired company&quot; and ranked the first. In 2005,2006, IBM twice by the Chinese Association of Social Work Committee of Corporate Citizenship granted &quot;good corporate citizen,&quot; title of honor. ? IBM&#39;s former CEO Mr. Guo Shina Speaking of IBM, when the Chinese company had said with deep feeling: &quot;IBM With the commitment of China, for China to establish a world&#39;s leading information technology company. It is located in China, China human services, day services for the world. IBM Chinese companies will become the &#39;IBM China Company&#39;, became part of the Chinese economy. &quot;Recalling the history of IBM&#39;s growth in China, from the initial strategy of trying to stage, to the medium-term strategy investment phase, to fully integrate into the stage, IBM has always cherish deep commitment to China. ? Since 2004, after giving a new definition of innovation, in 2006, IBM further extended to the innovative content of six levels of &quot;product innovation&quot;, &quot;service innovation&quot;, &quot;Business Process Innovation&quot;, &quot;business model innovation&quot;, &quot;Management and cultural creativity &quot;and&quot; policy and social innovation. &quot; ? In the same year, IBM will &quot;service innovation&quot; concept into China, has signed with the Ministry of Commerce help &quot;thousands of 10 Project&quot; to promote the development of China&#39;s modern service industry and export-oriented industrial upgrading; and the Ministry of Education signed the &quot;direction of modern services science&quot; research memorandum of cooperation projects, will serve to introduce the Chinese institutions of higher learning science courses; and the Ministry of Health to promote the construction of Chinese medical information sharing platform and services to improve the regional quality of medical services. In order to better implementation of the strategy with the services IBM has the global procurement headquarters to Shenzhen, China, and Lehman Brothers jointly launched a 180 million U.S. dollars of the &quot;China Investment Fund&quot;, and two of the world SOA solution centers located in Beijing. IBM hopes that these initiatives, IBM has brought to China in the global information technology services leader with regard to skills, to help Chinese companies and government to innovate, so as to more effectively support China&#39;s growing development needs of the service sector. ? 2007, IBM China will uphold the &quot;customer success, innovation should, integrity responsible for&quot; core values, vision and layout of globalization, the efforts to become the customer&#39;s innovation partner for the Chinese building &quot;innovative country&quot; to make a cent effort. ? The corporate brand in the World Brand Lab (World Brand Lab) 2006 compiled by the &quot;World Top 500 Brands&quot; list ranked No. 11 in the &quot;Barron&quot; released 2006 Global 100 largest companies ranked by the degree of respect tally ranked 49th. ?  in 2008 to meet China&#39;s strategy of building an innovative country, as China&#39;s market and human resources position in the global strategy to further increase IBM, IBM&#39;s investment and development centers in China have been constantly strengthened. From August 2008 to October, IBM in the development center in Beijing and Shanghai have moved into new premises. The new development center infrastructure investment and more relevant resources for the development of CDL to open up new milestone. ? October 15, 2008, in the IBM China Development Center, Office Building, IBM will be hosting the grand &quot;2008 IBM China Development Center Innovation Open Day&quot; that is &quot;2008 IBM Innovation Forum and the IBM China Development Center new location celebration&quot;. Relevant departments of China will visit the guidance of the leadership, IBM software, to bring the global leader Steve Mills IBM WebSphere, Tivoli&#39;s worldwide general manager of two product lines, Mr. Tom Rosamilia, Al Zollar, Mr. and IBM GTS MBPS Mr. John Lutz, general manager of worldwide activities visit site, the IBM software development in China&#39;s development direction and strategy, and domestic customers face to face communication. Representatives of domestic customers to share experiences and feelings of technological innovation. Culture IBM has often been described as a sales center or a sales-dominated corporate culture. Traditionally, many of its administrative staff and general managers will come from its sales force. In addition, middle and senior management are usually sold to key customers the process of direct support to sales staff. In the 20th century, most of the time, a blue suit, white shirt, black tie is the uniform of IBM employees in public. However, since the 90&#39;s, IBM relax these requirements; clothing and staff with their counterparts in large technology companies are not significantly different performance . ? In 2003, IBM embarked on an ambitious plan to use the &quot;Jam&quot; technology to rewrite company values - corporate intranet in a certain period of time-based online discussions on key issues, involving more than 50,000 employees, for a period three days. Jam technology, including text analysis software (eclassifier) theme of my online comments, Jam has been at the IBM internal use of the 6. Since 2003, the Jam, the company value updated to reflect three modern business, markets, and the views of employees : &quot;dedicated to the success of each customer,&quot; &quot;our company and the world of Innovation,&quot;, &quot;all relationships of trust and personal responsibility.&quot; ? A Jam in 2004, more than 52,000 employees with 72 hours of exchange of best practices. The focus of activities is to identify the values of the complaint to support the implementation of the previously determined values. Jam event of such a new development, so that IBM members of the selection of important ideas to support the values. (For further information see the Harvard Business Review, 2004, interview SamPalmisanoIBM Chairman). ? Recent IBM&#39;s culture by the open source movement. The company&#39;s Linux-based IBM Linux Technology Center invested billions of dollars in software and services. Including the core staff of more than 300 Linux developers. IBM&#39;s open source is not never met to trouble. ? [Edit] Difference and labor issues ? IBM efforts to promote equality of opportunity and diversity of labor can be traced back at least World War I, when the company hired disabled veterans. IBM is ranked in Working Mother magazine in 2004 only ten years ago, technology companies and also in 2005 one of the two companies (the other is a Hewlett-Packard). ? The company has a traditional trade unions, although some U.S. workers to challenge IBM. In the 90&#39;s, two major pension program changes, including cash balance plans, leading to an employee claiming age discrimination class action. IBM employees won the lawsuit and reached a partial solution, but it is still under appeal. ? IBM long-term large-scale layoffs, with some touch of history to generate a good reputation. Emerged in recent years some large cuts staff situation, IBM tried to adapt to changing market conditions and basis for the profit decline. Zhihou of results as expected, the first quarter of 2005, IBM is mainly in Europe, canceled 14 500 posts. 2005.6 8, IBM Canada Ltd. eliminated 700. Are IBM and others in China, India, the Philippines, Costa Rica, IBM offices have emerged a steady growth in jobs. ? October 10, 2005, IBM became the world&#39;s first formal commitment not to use genetic information in the employment decisions of major companies. This is IBM announcing support for the U.S. National Geographic&#39;s genographic project within a few months after another statement. ? IBM Corporation in China around 500 employees, while maintaining long internship in the size of 500, has an internal reliable sources said the chances regularized practice about 20% Product Software products including DB2, Lotus, Rational, Tivoli, WebSphere family of five. ? DB2: database management systems, content management, business intelligence, data warehousing, data mining. ? Lotus: Desktop office, collaboration and portals. ?

Professional graphics workstation: A Pro Series, M Pro Series, Z pro series, T221 ultra-high resolution flat panel displays. ? Grid Computing ? Storage technology: disk storage systems, tape storage, network storage, storage software. ? Retail Terminal: business cash registers, POS software ? Other products: ACS advanced wiring systems, IBM Power Solutions product catalog, Cisco products and services ? With Microsoft on the impact of the computer industry has been hampered by the promotion into, IBM became the company&#39;s hope for the defeat, IBM support of all freedom-loving computer users. ? In the past 80 years, the world economy growing, ever-changing modern science, IBM has always been to advance technology, excellent management and unique products that lead the development of information industry, to ensure the world almost all users of the information processing industry the full range of needs. As we all know, as early as 1969, the Apollo spacecraft carrying three astronauts, responsible for human mission to the moon for the first time; 1981, the space shuttle Columbia has successfully flew up into the sky. These two historic space flight are embodied IBM unparalleled wisdom. IBM&#39;s business is always the same as spacecraft continue to forge ahead towards a higher goal, for the benefit of mankind. ? IBM: Interview Daquan IBM, a key factor in success Foresee the great achievements of the great enterprise ? IBM founder of the glorious process of growth from Watson&#39;s extraordinary ability to foresee. National Cash Register Company resolutely down Watson became president of CTR, because he clearly saw Hough machines in the computer in the process of the invention and application of special status. ? 1914, great changes have taken place in the United States, the level of human technology has increased significantly. Commercial activities in the great period of development, he recognized that the coming era of highly dependent on the computer. Watson confidence in their predictions, and try to practice. Watson&#39;s prediction proved correct unparalleled. IBM punch card machine is in development based on a series of new products for the United States and the progress of all mankind made a great contribution. ? Two heads are better ? IBM and the U.S. financial sector on Wall Street&#39;s relationship dates back to 1914. Watson was recently appointed the company&#39;s total planted, faced with the complete failure of the operating situation: The company established the 10 million U.S. dollars issued shares worth 300 million dollars; to 4 million U.S. dollars in scale of operation is carrying over 600 million in long-term liabilities . The company has reached a decisive period of survival, the greatest difficulty is whether to raise a certain amount of money to maintain the normal operation of the company. The status of the company was not willing to take the risk of a bank loan. But when Randy Watson can go house Morgan Trust Bank Shique successfully obtained a loan application. Morgan said: &quot;This financing not for your company, but to be honest that the personality you are.&quot; To 60 years, while under the command of Morgan Ke Randy have two electronics companies: one is IBM, General Electric, another is Company (GE), two companies highly competitive. Later, GE defeat in the competition, IBM has become the only Morgan in the electronics industry darling, lent every means love. ? President of the United States Government at Columbia University, Eisenhower situation is in the process of U.S. presidential elections, IBM initiative to provide campaign funds and other co-operation with the Rockefeller family. Eisenhower won the election, IBM is one of the great hero. IBM boss and successive governments have maintained close relations basically. It is made with the marriage of the strength of IBM was unparalleled. ? The interests of consumers first IBM back in the early 20th century made it clear that under the seller and conscientiously implement the operating criteria for the interests of consumers first. In 1914, Watson was transferred to IBM&#39;s former president after the implementation of CTR must be dedicated to customer service business idea. CTR at the same time all the directors are shareholders, they always emphasized the priority the interests of shareholders. Therefore, shareholders are actually self-operation to maintain high dividends, without taking into account the company&#39;s long-term interests and the interests of consumers. His extreme isolation, the country ranked the views are, the board insisted on the need to put the interests of consumers first. This, the company emphasized that the results of each development, whether small or large development projects development project, users must first be assessed and to listen to advice, allowed practical. ? &quot;Local ism&quot; great success ? Multinational companies in expanding overseas business process, in particular to note is the question of how to get the local government and people support, the availability of support is the key to career success. In France, IBM adhere to the &quot;local doctrine&quot; strategy which was a great success, the U.S. General Electric company is not careful to respect the national feelings of the local people resulted in a complete failure. IBM companies in France to take &quot;local doctrine&quot; strategy are: a possible employment of local staff, if possible, will all have to local people; Second careful to respect the French national character and traditional values; third is to implement the interests of the equitably; Fourth, separate the part of the shares to local people; 5 is close to the social elite, to support and assist the local government&#39;s policies. IBM&#39;s slogan is: to contribute to world economic development, committed to world peace. This slogan throughout Western Europe have won the favor. ? Extraordinary research and development work ? Computer, there are known lead times, the computer company, all their future at stake, is committed to research and development, for which research and development to become the focus of competition. IBM research and development company, as always our top priority, and the number of profit for research and development, and to establish the basis for the pursuit of all possible sectors. ? IBM wages and benefits system ? IBM, wages and benefits in cash from the numerous combination of wages and welfare, and through systematic design, with a variety of management systems within the company, and the company offers a variety of career plans to attract more outstanding and retention of talent to reduce turnover, and encourage more potential employees for companies and individuals make more contributions to the development of purpose. ? IBM&#39;s wages and benefits projects: ? ─ ─ the basic monthly salary is the basic value of staff, performance and contribution to the recognition ? ─ ─ comprehensive subsidy to employees living in cash to support basic needs ? Chinese New Year before the Lunar New Year bonus ─ ─ paid, the employees had a prosperous New Year ? ─ ─ leave allowance reimbursement for staff costs during the leave ? ─ ─ variable bonus when the company completed the effectiveness of objectives established to issue, to encourage the contribution of staff ? Sales Incentive ─ ─ sales and technical support staff in the sales incentive mission ? Award ─ ─ staff due to work or when the reward outstanding contributions ? ─ ─ housing scheme promoted a certain amount of company employees into personal accounts, to fund staff to purchase a house so that employees can in the shortest possible time, with their ability to solve housing problems ? ─ ─ employees medical insurance plan medical care and the cost of annual physical examination by the company to resolve ? ─ ─ pension scheme co-ordinated plan to actively participate in the social pension, old age security for staff ? ─ ─ other insurance, including life assurance, personal accident, travel accident insurance, and other projects concerned with the safety of employees at all times ? ─ ─ encourage employees to leave the system in the spare time to fully rest on a statutory holiday, there are paid annual leave, home leave, marriage leave, bereavement leave and so on. ? ─ ─ company employees staff the club organizes group activities to enhance teamwork, improve morale, create a family atmosphere, including entertainment, sports events, large parties, mass tourism. ? IBM&#39;s wage system: ? Complete job evaluation system, and work within the different types and different systems of classification and level, due to different levels of pay within the different levels, to fully reflect the contribution of remunerated according to the spirit. ? Rigorous performance evaluation system, the executives and staff to complete the annual work plan development, and performance evaluation process, good or bad performance is closely related with the pay and promotion, so that &quot;the contribution of remunerated in accordance with&quot; the purpose of . ? Strict salary survey methodology, pay close attention to changes in the industry wage, salary structure adjustments to ensure that wages and benefits in the industry to remain competitive. ? Equal opportunity pay and promotion prospects: ? Performance and professional skills are in the process of upgrading and salary considerations first. IBM&#39;s wage system and management system to ensure the promotion and salary increase for each employee equal opportunities. As long as the positive development of career goals, and continuously update professional skills, proactive, and constantly expand the scope and influence, improve leadership skills, your career and IBM will pay you every success followed. ? IBM wage Revealed ? IBM&#39;s wages are so few parts of the (non-ISSC): ? 12 months of the basic salary (Monthly Basic Salary). ? China New Year and spring bonus (2 months MBS). ? performance bonus (0.8 months of wages), the world will not be issued to a few people, is basically a lie. ? Monthly subsidy, 700 or 800. ? For people who do sales, if the sales mission (commission) for 12 months you get 141% MBS, and other job does not. ? housing fund in addition to housing funds outside the company to 15%. ? Come to talk about IBM&#39;s classification. IBM to staff grading from band1 to band10, band10 highest. From band1 to band5 (contract) there is overtime, starting from band6 to band10 (regular), there is no overtime, and overtime is also white dry. ? Graduates go after is rated band90 (not band1 to band10, is the trial period, no overtime), band90 basic salary before tax, graduate students usually 6500 (before tax, including subsidies, the same below), undergraduate Health is about 5500, band90 the basic wage and band4 is the same, but band4 overtime pay. For sales of band90 it, band90 not commission this year&#39;s. ? band90 will last a year, and then turn into band6, band6 the basic wage is 9000. ? band6 stay at least 2-4 years to rise to band7. band7 basic salary is 13,000. ? band7 stay at least 3-7 years to rise to band8. band8 basic salary is 23,000. ? band8 will stay for many years is hard to say, it took 15 years have seen a rise on the band9&#39;s. In general, band10 the end of the mainland people, band10 is the excutive level above, and more than band10 the mainland seems to very few. China, Hong Kong and Taiwan were the top have been dominated by the region&#39;s top lot of the Japanese. [Hide] [/ hide] IBM&#39;s written examination, a trainee candidate review process Written test was divided into three, each time, not so, according to Questions in the decision, I took part of that field is a set of matrix problems, a number of series title, two sets of mathematical reasoning problems. Need a total of 47 minutes, the longest of the type. ? Each group must be completed within a certain time, the first is a matrix question, 13 minutes, a total of 15. ? A total of three 5 * 5 matrix, each matrix 5, trivial, in the impression, probably have these: ? Replace all of the W 2, Y replaced all 6, all of X replaced by 4, which line and which column and is equal to 18? ? The fourth column inversion, the first two rows and replace the second column, third column fourth following figure that? ? The number 2 most frequently appeared in the line of the letter appears only deleted from the matrix, it appears to other places in the matrix minus 3 times the number of occurrences and the number of occurrences by one 4 the number? ? To each number 2 and 3 in the left all the letters exchanged figures with their right, most of which appear in the column number two letters? ? Is this type of problem, in exchange for going, is very difficult, I did not finish, just do 11 questions, in front can not guarantee that all right. But the big question wrong answers because of the points, the last time I think of that put back four empty are filled with the B, look at luck. ? The second part is the digital sequence of questions, 4 minutes, 20 questions, simple questions were terrible, the whole is a pattern: successive numbers, a jump, then continue for several numbers, jump ... ... a few examples: ? 3,4,1,1,5,6,1,1,? ? 15,16,7,8,17,18,9,? ? 4,5,7,10,14,19,? ? 17,18,15,14,19,20,13,? ? 12,14,15,17,18,19,? ? 20 questions are all the type, super simple. ? Third and fourth part of mathematical reasoning problems, in fact, I think the call might be more appropriate calculation problems quickly, are some very simple math word problems, mostly related with the ratio is like a test to quickly understand and fast computing power Bale , 15 minutes, 15 questions, a total of two. Also a few examples: ? A B copier copiers copies a day is 2.5 times that they were a total of 1,200 copies and asked that a copy copy much, how many? ? A group of machines there 5cluster, each cluster of 50 machines, the first day of the 135 employees use the station the next day using 86 sets of 75 on the third day, fourth day of the 105 units, asking what is the usage of these machines ? ? 60% and 10% alcohol, and now needs 13 liters of 30% ethanol, 60% of need how many liters of alcohol? ? These three topics are the subject of a representative, and other are all like this. Calculation of a wild pass, eventually are completed ahead of schedule and should go wrong. Well are multiple choice. ? In addition to questions after finished outside the Matrix feel good, then ask the students feel also similar, some students do is two sequences of numbers problem, not the two groups of mathematical reasoning problems was that she was lucky, because this simple. Later, they heard repeated in a group is a group of points, all of this. ? General feeling of view, is not difficult, IBM is mainly wanted to test reading ability, quick response and computing power.
