3 min read

We are pleased to announce that 10 IBM solutions have earned a place in G2’s 2022 Best Software Awards, spanning the Analytics & AI, IT Infrastructure, IT Management and Security products.

The G2 2022 Best Software Awards rank the world’s best software companies and products based on authentic, timely reviews from real users.

Positive feedback from customers and awards like these are evidence of IBM delivering solutions to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues — solutions that are delivered to clients around the world to meet the needs of tomorrow and today.

Digital transformation

IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson, IBM Watson Assistant, IBM SPSS Modeler and IBM SPSS Statistics each earned the distinction for the Analytics & AI product categories. As the need to digitally transform has only increased since the start of the pandemic, these artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive modeling software solutions have played an integral part in helping clients reinvent both internally and externally, serving their own employees and end-users with better experiences. Bradesco Bank, for example, used Watson Assistant to improve both the speed of service and level of personalization each client received when using online chat.

Here's some client feedback that contributed to the awards:

  • IBM Watson Assistant: “The team that helped us get Watson implemented went way above and beyond. They were extraordinarily responsive to questions and requests for assistance. Watson was easy to embed into our existing website, and the team took extra care to make sure our needs were met and that we were up to speed.” – Communications Specialist
  • IBM SPSS Statistics: “When it comes to data science and data analysis, we completely leverage IBM SPSS. Not only is it a powerful statistical analysis software, but it also anticipates all my needs as a user.” – Account Manager

Data utilization

IBM Db2 earned the accolade among IT Infrastructure Products, proving the value of its ability to help clients manage, analyze and properly store the vast amounts of data being generated on a daily basis. O-I Glass, a glass container manufacturer, realized a 50% reduction in storage usage and a 30% increase in performance through its deployment of Db2. This saved over 1 million US dollars.

The following is a quote from a user that contributed to this award:

  • IBM Db2: “Db2 combined with other IBM supporting infrastructure is one of the top databases regarding performance.” — IT and Services Administrator

Modern business operations

Turbonomic, Zerto on IBM Cloud, Veeam on IBM Cloud and IBM Disaster Recovery as a Service earned the award for IT Management products. These solutions are critical for business continuity, as downtime nor resourcing issues are an option for customers. By automating resource management with Turbonomic or achieving RPO in seconds with Veeam on IBM Cloud, business operations are modernized to stay ahead of costly outages.

See what praise clients gave about their success with these powerful solutions:

  • Turbonomic: “It automates many of the tasks we had to do manually, which took hours a day.” – Information Services Administrator
  • Zerto on IBM Cloud: “Zerto is a great Disaster Recovery Tool which provides good data security. The replication groups and other such features such as NSX edge make it very easy to recommend.” – System Engineer

Threat management

IBM Security QRadar won among the Security products. As new threats are introduced every day due to the increased consumption of cloud-based technologies and the rise in cyberattacks, both detection and response are essential. Companies must be prepared to implement a security approach that is preventive against malicious intent everywhere — a zero trust strategy.

The following is a quote that contributed to this award:

  • IBM Security QRadar: “IBM Security QRadar is an excellent solution that provides wonderful, centralized monitoring” – Cyber Security Specialist/Consultant
