Hybrid cloud and AI are IBM’s clear path to growth

At the beginning of 2020, less than 25 percent of mission-critical workloads had moved to the cloud. As companies sought to equip their employees to work remotely during the pandemic, many sped up the pace of their technological changes. They’ve realized the sooner they can make the jump to cloud and cloud-enabled AI, the better. This trend will continue until the 75 percent of workloads that were left behind migrate to hybrid cloud.

IBM is doubling down on its investment in hybrid cloud and AI because we see it as the best way to help our customers on this journey. They want the speed, efficiency and innovation that comes with moving to the cloud, without having to reinvent their entire IT infrastructure. That’s what hybrid cloud is all about.

Over the last decade, IBM has transformed itself to meet the mission-critical needs of our clients. Today, IBM is laser-focused on open hybrid cloud—a $1 trillion market opportunity. Our hybrid cloud platform provides a full stack of capabilities to clients including our AI-enabled software portfolio, cloud transformation services, systems, security and the IBM public cloud.”
