About IBM

What do you think of when you hear IBM - Mainframes? Hard drives? The Personal Computer? 

We don’t sell tabulating machines, laptops or intel servers anymore - we’re a new IBM, and possibly not like you imagined.

For a start, we use MAC’s (yes, really!), and our leaders wear jeans.

We apply design thinking – and have the post-it notes to prove it.

We enable start-ups to grow and are transforming healthcare – we’re even curing disease! 

We are defining the cognitive era, and this is just the beginning.

What can YOU do with IBM?
