What is Smarter Computing?

Smarter Computing is IBM's approach to IT innovation in an information-centric era. It helps IT leaders seize the opportunities of a smarter planet by thinking differently about the way their organizations can unleash innovation through the cloud, unlock the power of data, and safeguard the security of critical information and business processes.

The time is now for CIOs to:
