“We are glad to formally welcome IBM x86 teamnow joining Lenovo MEA. Our priorities are to deliver a seamless transition for customers and partners, while we accelerate our server business. We have big plans for the enterprise market and aim to repeat the success we had in PCs”, said Oliver Ebel, Vice President and General Manager, Lenovo MEA.
