The New Insight Lab
Housed in the Galileo building at Hursley, the New Insight Lab provides visitors with a glimpse of what IBM thinks the future will look like. This is its Smart Planet initiative, which showcases how technology can integrate with people and other devices.
Hursley has been home to IBM's WebSphere middleware, MQ Series, message queue technology and the CICs transaction system. IBM uses the site to showcase future technologies like the connected home, smart metering and high-tech retailing.
