IBM Corp.'s server and semiconductor groups are joining forces in hopes that by working closer together the two will help each other improve their product lines, an IBM spokesman said. IBM's semiconductor group is responsible for manufacturing the PowerPC 970 processors used in Apple's Power Mac G5 and Xserve G5 systems.

The new IBM Technology and Systems Group is a combination of the Technology Group headed by John Kelly, senior vice president and group executive, and the Systems Group, headed by William Zeitler, also a senior vice president and group executive.

The two men will equally share responsibility for the new division, overseeing their respective areas, said Chris Andrews, a company spokesman. Mr. Kelly's group designs, manufactures and sells processors to both external clients and IBM's server group, while Mr. Zeitler's organization designs and develops IBM's wide range of server technology from mainframes to blade servers.

No layoffs will occur as a result of the merger, Mr. Andrews said. "It just ends up being the realignment of organizational charts and internal reporting," he said. "The real aim for this is that the two businesses are more closely aligned with each other, which provides a greater efficiency both internally and externally."

The Systems Group is coming off a good quarter, in which it had strong sales of servers with Intel Corp. processors. The group also had strong overall growth.

The two groups have always collaborated on new and existing products, but the new organizational structure will help formalize that relationship, Andrews said.(IDG News Service MacCentral)
