International Business Machines (IBM) is the world’s leading information technology products, services and solutions company. The company’s portfolio of capabilities ranges from services to software, hardware, fundamental research, financing and the component technologies used to build larger systems. 2014 revenues were $92 billion, with over 380, 000 employees operating in more than 160 countries.
IBM is an innovation company. Both in what we do and in how we do it, we pursue continuous transformation – always remixing to higher value in our portfolio and skills, in the capabilities we deliver to our clients and in our own operations and management practices. With the advent of Cloud, Mobile, Social and Analytics, the world has experienced a massive change in the way business is conducted. For example, the world produces over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data everyday and 80% of it is unstructured. Therefore, it’s invisible to current technology. IBM Watson along with our brand new Cognitive Consulting business is a cognitive system that can understand that data, learn from it and reason through it. That’s how industries as diverse as healthcare, retail, banking and travel are using Watson to reshape their industries.
At all levels within the company, IBM is looking for external talent to continue our transformation and continue to focus our growth in these new areas.
