Lenovo and IBM have expanded their alliance to work on a range of products aimed at the business market.

Under the terms of the alliance Lenovo and IBM Global Services will work on products aimed at businesses in industries such as healthcare, financial services, education, retail and government.

Sold through IBM Global Services, Lenovo and business partners will combine Lenovo PCs with a core group of IBM hardware and software products.

These will be combined with independent software partner applications, and infrastructure access services from IBM’s middleware services and maintenance and technical support service units.

Rory Read, senior vice president of operations at Lenovo, said, “We are committed to bringing the quality and reliability of our core Thinkpad and Thinkcentre technologies to enterprises and SMBs around the globe.

“Through this agreement, customers will now have the opportunity to include the purchase of Lenovo’s best engineered PCs within the context of their overall technology solutions,” he said.

IBM will continue to market and sell Lenovo PCs through IBM Global Services and its strategic outsourcing deals. IBM sold its PC manufacturing business to Lenovo two years ago.
