IBM Garage + Enterprise Design Thinking

A new way to think drives a new way to work

Putting human-centric design at the forefront is an amazingly effective way to simplify problems, reduce organizational complexity and align your goals and vision across teams —even in an enterprise setting. IBM pioneered the integration of design and agile practices for the enterprise, and IBM Garage is where that comes to life with Enterprise Design Thinking. Discover new, innovative ideas to solve what's most important for your business and your customers, and experience a new way of working that's collaborative, fast-moving and scalable to your entire organization.

The IBM Garage advantage

Enterprise Design Thinking is an important component of nearly every IBM Garage experience. It’s through an IBM Garage Design Thinking workshop that you will:

  • Define, understand and develop empathy for your users’ pain points.
  • Map out your critical use cases and business goals.
  • Ideate on possible solutions.
  • Identify assumptions and inherent risks.
  • Define hypotheses for possible outcomes to test.
  • Define a minimum viable product (MVP) to test against your hypotheses.

Enterprise Design Thinking is part of our industry-leading IBM Garage Methodology. Guided by these agile practices, your team works with ours to ultimately obtain the skills, technology and confidence to continue making human-centric, outcome-first decisions at pace, with the speed of change.

IBM Garage + Hybrid cloud

Unleash opportunities for innovation, growth and speed

What in your organization needs to be modernized? Consider how your current critical applications, infrastructure, operations and processes might be hindering your ability to pivot and execute when conditions require it. To make yours an agile enterprise requires transforming how you work and how your environment is built to support it, clearing the way for continuous, strategic innovation.

The IBM Garage advantage

Modernization is the transformation of your existing applications, infrastructure, data, operations and processes with approaches that enable them to integrate and interoperate with newer systems and technologies, all while keeping core legacy investments intact and operational. This interoperability opens the door to new efficiencies, visibility, opportunities, innovation and speed — not to mention technical potential and business growth, which would otherwise be difficult or impossible to accomplish with non-modernized legacy systems.

The IBM Garage Methodology simplifies the complexities of modernization so you can pivot nimbly. Working alongside IBM Garage experts empowers your workforce with the ability to deploy next-generation technologies and be the catalyst for your ongoing digital transformation and growth. IBM Garage also majors in hybrid cloud, the smarter architecture for enterprise IT and the foundation for all essential modernization.

IBM Garage can help you discover what is most critical to modernize, how and when. Consider:

  • Your existing workloads, applications and underlying platform play a part in moving toward easily managed systems.
  • Compliance, security and location requirements may reveal unique workload needs.
  • Modernization means a cultural shift, requiring the right technology, skills and cloud culture for the greatest value and success.

IBM Garage is your proven partner for the best approach to modernization.

IBM Garage + Security

Combat threats with security built with clarity, integrity and speed

Complex security threats give rise to complex security systems, which are traditionally challenging to maintain, alter and even understand. The security and compliance posture you co-create with the IBM Garage is decidedly different because it is guided by the IBM Garage Methodology. Profound complexities that are characteristic of security challenges get simplified into manageable, actionable opportunities.

The IBM Garage advantage

Security in the age of cloud must be inclusive of digital transformation, the integration of existing tools with new technology, shifting organizational culture, rapid development workflows, a virtual workforce and more.

IBM Garage works for every case, focusing on outcomes and giving your team space to align, ideate and co-create, bringing in the right people and technologies to help you make the right security decisions for your business at the right time. Your team is empowered to align, modernize and collaborate, breaking down knowledge silos and building elusive skills so they can own their security platform with confidence — confidence gained while working alongside the experts behind many world-class IBM security solutions.

IBM Garage also works fast. The IBM Garage Methodology and its MVP-based approach, along with our extensive architectural and code-based accelerators, can dramatically advance your timetable to outcome and value. Agile practices are woven into our approach and into your solution from the start. That means you'll waste no time questioning whether the security platform you build will be the one you need.

IBM Garage will help you:

  • Modernize security frameworks and controls.
  • Manage threats with actionable insights and quantified risk.
  • Overcome a security skills shortage.
  • Strengthen data privacy and regulatory compliance.
  • Address increasing cyber attack vectors, including IoT.
  • Secure your journey to cloud and digital transformation.
  • Create context-based security for a zero trust strategy.
