The new board will meet regularly throughout the year to preview new business technology originating in IBM's Labs, as well as offer feedback and personal insight upon product investment, designs and prioritization best suited to automate the flow of information involving heterogeneous database and OS platforms, said Nelson Mattos, director of Information Integration, for Armonk, NY-based IBM.
Members of the Information Integration Leadership Board include Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc., Kawasaki Motors Corporation USA, Ingram Micro Inc., and Taikang Life Insurance Co. Ltd, to name a few. Mattos said the board is expected to grow over time.
