Think about the F1 team. While the drivers focus on driving, overtaking manoeuvres, skill and agility, their pit crew prepares the race car for that speed and reliability using advanced technology and techniques and the entire team aligns with the end goal of winning the race.

IBM Garage is the same.

The IBM Garage engages diverse, empowered teams that partner together to apply purposeful technologies to quickly create and scale new, innovative ideas that can dramatically evolve businesses to their next chapter.

The core members of the IBM Garage focus on purposeful, client-centric innovation and support their organizations to drive efficiency and create intelligent workflows.

Explaining the concept at the recently concluded ‘Building Cognitive Enterprises’ event organized by IBM & CNBC-TV18 in Mumbai, Lula Mohanty, GM – Global Business Services, IBM Asia Pacific, said that in the IBM Garage, the journey starts with the strategic intent of the business.

“The approach of IBM Garage is (about) creating cross-organisational space within an entity to bring together cross-functional teams along with strategic vendors, and ecosystem partners to have a free flow of ideas (following the approach of) co-create, co-execute, and co-operate,” said Mohanty.

In a garage, business leaders, technical leaders, designers and developers learn together and innovate together.

Once the intent is established by the businesses, ensuring the transformational journey is not localised to automating one part of the organisation, the next steps are solicitation of ideas, jumpstarting innovation, testing design-thinking methods and paradigms, and accelerating the pace of taking a concept from idea to deployment.

“Garage has seen to be a cult change in the terms of being a huge change agent within an organisation,” said Mohanty.

Organisations can deploy IBM Garage to move applications to Cloud (IBM Cloud Migration), build AI into processes (IBM Artificial Intelligence), enable cognitive workflows for front and back office processes, create hybrid and secure multi-cloud infrastructures, etc.

Anthony Farah, Managing Partner-Strategy & Innovation, GBS, IBM Asia Pacific and Prashobh Chandralayam, Partner- Retail Industry, GBS, IBM India-South Asia, respectively highlighted how IBM Services successfully helped Vodafone New Zealand and Bestseller India (better known by its brand – Vero Moda) transform into Cognitive Enterprises.

With an IBM Garage experience, you can move faster, work smarter, ideate more rapidly and fundamentally change the way you work. making the approach instrumental to your change process with participants coalescing into a network of advocates for digital and cognitive change.
