Overview

By 2033, global GDP will have grown by 7%¹ or USD 7 trillion from generative AI’s impact on businesses and society. Half of that growth will come from productivity savings, the other half from increased consumer demand as a result of AI-enabled product enhancements.

However, in a world where 70% of digital transformation efforts fail², how do enterprises ensure they are getting real value from AI and not ceding ground to competitors? 
 

What we do

IBM Garage helps de-risk transformation while quickly scaling impact through its collaborative, value obsessed engagement model.  IBM Garage aligns work to your biggest drivers of value, transparently tracks that value as it’s realized in each stage of a program, and scales the new ways of working by bringing together the best of enterprise design thinking, agile development, and DevSecOps practices, accelerated by generative AI tools from IBM and partners.
 

One of the major contributions IBM brings to us is how to take the proof of concept live into production. The templates IBM provides enable us to do quick scaling, and to do testing, proofs of concept and development in parallel. Prihandono Aditama Product Manager Wintershall Dea AG
