BIGGISH BLUE and the Philippine government are engaged in a handbag war in that country's courts after a government agency accused IBM of flogging faulty software.
According to the AP, it all started when the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) ran an advertising campaign claiming that IBM had sold it faulty software.
However Biggish Blue said that the software had come from a venture of three local firms with which IBM Philippines was not even involved.
IBM Philippines said the GSIS adverts in local newspapers "were not only false and misleading, but were motivated by ill will and malice." It is suing the island nation's government for $4.33 million for telling porkies.
The GSIS sued IBM Philippines over the alleged failure of its software and is demanding more than $2 million in damages and litigation expenses.
It is also suing the president of Questonix, which was the local outfit contracted to install the IBM database management software. µ
