IBM joins Siebel for social services

In a new partnership, IBM and Siebel Systems officials will develop a product for the social services and social security markets, which they estimate at about $24 billion.

The two companies have been collaborating for more than five years and now have entered a formal strategic agreement.

Their joint customers already include the Department for Work and Pensions in the United Kingdom, and the Centre for Work and Income in the Netherlands.

Under the agreement, the two companies will sell Siebel Public Sector products as a component of IBM's Integrated Case Management solution. The two companies will also collaborate on developing new products.
