IBM on April 3 marked the 50th anniversary of its Fellows program by elevating eight employees to the Fellowship for their innovations in such strategic areas as cloud and mobile computing, big data and business analytics. The new Fellows will be visible in reinforcing IBM's commitment to technical eminence worldwide as they each "adopt" an IBM growth market, serving as technology ambassadors in key regions. The new IBM Fellows join an elite group of inventors whose efforts benefit from IBM's more than $6 billion annual investment in research and development as well as other initiatives that benefit clients. Since 1963, 246 IBMers have been named IBM Fellows and 85 of them remain active IBM employees. IBM Fellows have generated nearly 7,500 patents, received five Nobel prizes, been awarded thousands of government and professional citations, and have a massive store of published research in scientific journals. "As we have for half a century, IBM is today honoring its most outstanding technologists and their contributions to computing and society," said Ginni Rometty, IBM chairman, president and CEO. "Like all IBM Fellows, members of the class of 2013 are recognized leaders in the global technical community. In 2013, this leadership will be focused on IBM growth markets, where each of this year's fellows will serve as an ambassador and resource to a different country."
