The aim of this project is to study the context of an international business case. This simulation allows all to acquire knowledge of the many stages involved in performing such an undertaking from the implementation of a real file to a virtual launch of a product on the market. The company selected for this project is IBM, with the selected product X. The recipient country chosen for the fictitious presence is Malaysia. From a professional standpoint, the IBM project involves the implementation of a specific product of the company to a target country, which in this case, is Malaysia. For this, a study of the entire IBM Company has been provided, with an overview of the life and manners prevalent in Malaysia, and detailed information about the fictional location of the designated product. The focus is on the context in which Malaysia is anchored, by studying market trends of computing, its potential targets, and the products that could meet the demand consistently. The research has been supplemented by information regarding the country itself, including political, geographical, and economic data, to help understand the regulations of the Malaysian market.
IBM (International Business Machines Corporation) is an American multinational created on June 15, 1911 from the merger of the Computing Scale Company and the Tabulating Machine Company. On February 14, 1924, the name was changed to International Business Machines Corporation.
IBM is mainly present in the areas of software, hardware and IT services. In 2006 the limited company had 350,000 employees and its turnover was 91.4 billion dollars.

Malaysia was subjected from early on by the influence of India, which becomes dominant towards the first century. Its merchants introduced Hinduism and Buddhism and converted the Malay kings. Islam was brought into the country since the 13th century by traders from India, but most conversions took place in the 15th century. In the early 15th century, the city of Malacca was founded and soon turned into a major cosmopolitan hub of the spice route. In 1511 the Portuguese captured Malacca and more than a century later, in 1641 the Dutch ousted the Portuguese in the Strait of Malacca. And finally in 1795 the British took Malacca from the Dutch.
