Agriculture for smarter business

Agriculture for smarter business

In 30 years, the world’s population is estimated to grow beyond of what our current food supply can support.

Farmers are using IBM Watson IoTTM to analyse data like temperature, soil pH and other factors to give farmers insights that can help them make better decisions – and harvest greater yields. Producers meanwhile are using IBM Blockchain to help make the food supply chain safer, more efficient and more sustainable.

Aviation for smarter business

Aviation for smarter business

In the modern aviation world, customers want control over their travel experience, just as they have when planning a trip.

As part of its digital transformation American Airlines migrated to the cloud, which allowed it to develop apps faster and offer new services. Now it's created a dynamic rebooking app that lets customers view their flight options and book their own seats in the event of a cancellation or delay, helping the airline keep pace with customer expectations.

Automotive for smarter business

Automotive for smarter business

The business model of the automotive sector is reversing, with consumers becoming active participants rather than passive recipients.

With IBM ServicesTM, automotive companies can evolve from defining what types of vehicles they produce to creating entirely new products focused on driver experience, while simplifying administration by migrating to the cloud.

Banking for smarter business

Banking for smarter business

The age of smart banking is here, with customers dictating how, when and where they bank. Keeping up with ever-changing customer needs, regulatory demands and competitive threats takes more adoption of technologies like AI, blockchain, cybersecurity and cloud.

For UBank, these technologies are allowing it to operate more efficiently and bring new digital banking capabilities to market faster, like a virtual agent that improves the homeloan application experience.

Utilities

Utilities

Disruption in the utility sector means consumers have more choices than ever, so utilities must become more predictive to anticipate consumer needs and address them early.

IBM Industries helps utilities engage with customers by analysing real-time energy usage, demographic, behavioural and psychographic data, so they can tailor personalised programs to increase retention. And by using IBM Global Business Services, utilities can follow a cloud-first strategy that minimises their physical footprints and data centres.

Education

Education

Demand for STEM expertise is climbing, yet graduation rates are in decline.

Pioneered in the US, Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools (P-TECH) are innovative public schools spanning grades 9 to 14 that bring together the best elements of high school, college and career.

Within six years, students can graduate with a diploma in applied science, engineering, computers or other competitive STEM discipline, along with the skills and knowledge needed to continue their studies or step more easily into high-growth 'new collar' jobs.

Environment

Environment

In the era of smart environmentalism, corporations and citizens are working together toward a cleaner, more sustainable future. But protecting the planet takes both dedicated people and advanced technologies like AI and IoT.

To help safeguard the declining frog populations, the Australian Museum worked with IBM to create the FrogID app. It allows everyday people to make audio recordings of frogs and upload them to an online database, providing invaluable insights about the size and health of frog populations.

Freight and logistics for smarter business

Freight and logistics for smarter business

Consumers expect fast, secure deliveries, but paper-based processes burden the shipping industry. Removing these inefficient practices can help make the supply chain faster, more trustworthy and more efficient while supporting security.

IBM is working with transportation companies to use blockchain solutions that give greater visibility into millions of container journeys each year, accelerating the shipping process by eliminating paper documents.

Government for smarter business

Government for smarter business

Government leaders are under pressure to digitally transform. Citizens seek the same convenient, personalised cyber services they get from the on-demand economy, and elected officials need accurate insights to deliver on expectations.

Technologies like IoT, AI, blockchain and advanced analytics can modernise and transform working methods. IBM Watson™ is helping a local government detect citizen concerns with 97% accuracy by unlocking hidden insights in unstructured data.

Healthcare for smarter business

Healthcare for smarter business

Today’s decisions deserve tomorrow’s insights. IBM Watson Health™ is helping create meaningful change in health with over 15,000 clients and partners, 80,000 professionals and 185,000 patients and consumers around the world.

IBM combines resources and technologies to help address the challenges of a changing industry. By doing so, IBM is helping deliver the innovation and insight which help to power thriving organizations, support vibrant communities and address the most complex issues facing the healthcare industry.

Insurance for smarter business

Insurance for smarter business

With blockchain, AI and cloud opening new pathways to innovate, compete and profit, the age of smart insurance has arrived. Transformative thinking that’s data-driven embraces modernisation and digital customer engagement to help address risk management and compliance issues.

For one insurance provider, smart insurance means optimising the customer experience with AI. It's using IBM WatsonTM to assist in determining liability and analysing customer descriptions of motor vehicle accidents, helping customers make claims online quickly and simply.

Manufacturing for smarter business

Manufacturing for smarter business

With digital transformation disrupting traditional manufacturing processes, AI, IoT and the cloud will serve as the core foundational technologies critical for optimal plant floor operability, supply chain agility and ecosystem profitability.

Manufacturers are turning to IBM WatsonTM to forecast and address, in real time, the bottom-line impact inclement weather has on raw material delivery and how to anticipate and address equipment failures to help minimise productivity and production losses.

Oil and Gas for smarter business

Oil and Gas for smarter business

Oil and data are two of the world’s most valuable resources; their futures are intertwined. Oil and gas companies are working with IBM to better understand the complex systems and equipment used in exploration and production.

IBM WatsonTM AI solutions use data from IoT sensors, millions of files, decision logs and evaluations from around the world. This information helps engineers make more informed operational decisions to help avoid equipment problems.

Retail for smarter business

Retail for smarter business

In retail, supply processes can affect everything from customer satisfaction to profits, and even personal safety. But many retailers don’t have full visibility into their supply chain, so they struggle to uncover the insights they need.

Technologies such as IBM Blockchain, IoT and IBM WatsonTM can help drive supply chain benefits for retailers, including improved shipping transparency, reduced waste and gaining deeper insights into changing consumer behaviours.

Telecom and media for smarter business

Telecom and media for smarter business

Telecommunications, media and entertainment business are ripe for a digital reinvention, with huge potential to create next-generation customer experiences.

IBM is helping these industries make faster, more informed decisions and redefine what’s possible. AI and bots can drive network transformation with automation and modernisation, optimise and personalise customer experiences in real time, and make call centres future-ready.

Leading innovators are putting smart to work in their industries. Here’s how.
