IBM, headquartered in Armonk, New York, filed a complaint on February 12 in a federal court in White Plains, New York, claiming that McIntyre has violated a one-year noncompete agreement and may disclose IBM's diverse data and hiring plans to its competitors .
A spokesman for IBM said in a statement: "We are very happy that this move has been satisfactorily resolved by all parties and McIntyre will not start a new one until July."
A Microsoft spokesman said in a statement that the company is pleased to be able to resolve the issue.
IBM has asked judges to enforce noncompete agreements that will help ensure that McIntyre does not disclose to Microsoft information that is highly confidential and sensitive to IBM's recruitment and maintenance of a diverse workforce.
The court hearing on Microsoft's request is scheduled for March 12.
Employment lawyers say the lawsuit is uncommon because IBM sees its "trade secrets," a diversified data and strategy of economic value, a legal term commonly associated with cutting-edge technologies or tightly-protected formulations.
McIntyre's attorneys said in a court filing that she would not abuse any proprietary IBM information and that the information was not good for her or Microsoft.
Microsoft, of Redmond, Wash., Was not named IBM's lawsuit and said he was not interested in IBM's confidential information.
