The Application Innovation Consulting practice provides industrialized and flexible models to help companies design, build and continually improve the applications that run their business. Most organizations contain a vast portfolio of applications (custom, package, mobile and heritage) that is developed and maintained across varying application platforms (on-premise, cloud-enabled and cloud native). IBM has a spectrum of solutions to address complexities and move from project, team and organizational requirements to business outcomes.
At the base of these services is a globally integrated pool of talent that applies advanced analytics, highly automated workflows, a library of APIs and SDKs (including Watson Developer Cloud, BlueMix) and delivery methodologies: DevOps, Agile, Lean Startup and IBM Design Thinking — all to put the customer front and center, and help effectively design, build and speed quality releases to market. By applying our cognitive computing capabilities to how we work, we are able to accelerate the application design validation process and improve design quality beyond that of human expertise alone.
