IBM Virtual Client Center

The IBM Client Center Network on the Digital world

In much the same way as our physical client centers, which are spread around the world, bring IBM's expertise and showcase it in front of visitors, the same applies in the digital world. An IBM Virtual Client Center has as its principal role, the bringing of IBM's expertise in a digital environment.

As IBM has already invested up-front in the design of the IBM Virtual Client Center, anyone including clients and partners can take advantage of the full access to the virtual center including running their own webinars, without having to incur substantial initial set-up costs.
