Around the world, IBM plays an active role in helping universities, university students, and emerging innovators and employees prepare for the job markets of today and tomorrow. Engaging established academics and young scholars is critical to the future development and sustained success of IBM’s breakthrough technologies. In 2015, we issued more than 133,000 Bluemix development platform codes to university faculty and students, and registered more than 10,000 faculty members to download free IBM software. In total, our academic skills development program engaged nearly 57,000 faculty and students in such areas as analytics, IBM Watson cognitive computing, security and Internet of Things (IoT). In addition, our developer skills program reached more than 30,000 established and emerging innovators worldwide in 2015. Finally, IBM University Relations collaborated with other IBM business units to invest more than $13 million in awards and engagement programs, including volunteer initiatives that attracted more than 200 executives and thousands of employees in more than 20 countries throughout 2015.
