IBM dissolves Taligent subsidiary

IBM has officially dissolved the company's Taligent subsidiary and will absorb its 100-odd employees, the vast majority of whom are software engineers, and deploy them in a number of application-development efforts. Some of those programmers are expected to work in the recently announced Java porting center that IBM is setting up with Sun and Netscapebecause of their experience with Java while at Taligent, a spokeswoman says. The remainder of the Taligent programmers will focus on creating 'key components for a number of IBM's programming tools most notably VisualAge for Java and Visual Age for C++,' the spokeswoman says.
