IBM Adds Security to E-Business Offering:
IBM Corp. of Armonk, N.Y., bolstered its e-business services by adding a security portfolio that includes training, assessment, design, implementation and operational services.

IBM officials say e-business will be an important revenue source for the company in both commercial and government markets.

"Security is the No. 1 concern managers have about doing business on the Internet," said Neil Isford, vice president of e-business for IBM Global Services. The security services IBM is offering are being drawn from best practices the company has learned internally and from its customers, he said.

Wang, Microsoft Expand Relationship into Five Areas:
A strategic alliance between Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft Corp. and Wang Global of Billerica, Mass., will focus on five areas. They are: migration to the latest Microsoft 32-bit desktop technologies; networking, messaging and intranet infrastructure; strategic Internet and electronic-commerce applications; comprehensive networked technology services; and component-based vertical applications.

The alliance, formed in late March, expands on an existing pact. The agreement will bring together Microsoft's enterprise platform and Wang's consulting, support and integration portfolio, the companies said.

As part of the strategic alliance, Wang will train and certify 2,500 professionals as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineers and Microsoft Certified Solution Developers. Wang also will open two Centers of Excellence, one in Billerica and one in Italy.

Sysorex Adopts Owner Vanstar's Name:
Eight months after being bought by Fairfax, Va.-based Vanstar Corp., Sysorex Information Systems has changed its name to Vanstar Government Systems Inc.

The government unit remains based in Fairfax. The name change reflects the unit's integration with the rest of Vanstar.

Since the purchase in July, the government unit has added services such as network infrastructure integration and IT asset management to its product offerings.
