Leading in Collaboration Solutions

Share this post:

What does it take to be a leader in the collaboration solutions space? For different industry analysts this might mean different things, but we believe the overarching theme is helping people work together better, faster and more efficiently. In order to be more effective, employees must be able to find expertise and knowledge quickly and easily, share information and insights widely yet securely, and, amidst all this constant flow of information, tasks and data, still focus on their most important work. It’s our belief that to be broadly recognized as a leader, a collaboration solution must handle all of these often competing asks well – and not just well, but better than the competition.

Over the past year, analysts have consistently recognized IBM solutions as a leader in the collaboration space. While IBM is proud of the recognition and distinction and the momentum we have built, we have never been a company to rest on our laurels. We are working diligently to improve our already impressive solutions through new features, cognitive capabilities, integrations with strategic partners, and much more.

We look forward to sharing more about these developments with you in the future. In the meantime, please read more about what industry analysts have to say about IBM collaboration solutions:
