Technology has to be more than smart.

Technologies like AI, cloud, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) will change the world. But only if they can be effectively trained, trusted and applied.

Together with our clients, IBM is putting smart to work.

Industries

Sport

Sport

For 29 years IBM has been the official supplier of Information Technology and consultant to the All England Club and The Championships, Wimbledon. By analysing millions of data points and thousands of pages of unstructured text you can understand, reason and learn what it takes to pursue greatness within a sporting arena.

Agriculture

Agriculture

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

IBM Watson IoT analyses a variety of data like temperature, soil pH and other agricultural and environmental factors to give farmers insights that can help them make better decisions — and harvest greater yields.

Aviation

Aviation

The aviation industry is working with IBM to put decades of maintenance insight at the fingertips of employees.

Using Watson technology to cross-analyse various data — including previous problems and successful solutions — maintenance personnel can help diagnose problems faster and with more confidence, creating smoother flights.

Automotive

Automotive

The age of the intelligent vehicle is here with automakers seeking to create immersive, connected experiences for drivers.

Autonomous vehicles can combine Watson technologies such as natural spoken language with location and weather data collected by IoT sensors to help take passengers to requested destinations, provide recommendations for places to visit and answer questions about their surroundings.

Banking

Banking

Customers demand the choice of how, when and where they do their banking. To keep up, banks need to improve the customer experience with faster service, reduced wait times and first-time problem resolution.

An AI-based virtual assistant - built with Watson - is helping to change the game in call center innovation.

Utilities

Utilities

Most industries are disrupted by people. Utilities is disrupted by forces of nature.

The utility industry is working with IBM to use weather and other data to better help anticipate natural occurrences before they happen, and to identify strategies to mitigate damage and avoid blackouts.

We cannot control the weather, but we can work to harness it.

Environment

Environment

Rampant poaching in South Africa is threatening the extinction of rhinoceroses.

In response, rangers are putting IBM Watson IoT sensors on zebras and impalas — who run when threats are near — to help locate and capture poachers.

Freight and logistics

Freight and logistics

Consumers expect fast delivery, 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 while accelerating the shipping process by eliminating paper documents.

Government

Government

What does it take to be the smartest and most sustainable port in the world? The answer might be the IoT.

Port officials are using IBM IoT solutions to create simple dashboard visualisations that show water depth, weather conditions and estimated time of arrival for ships. This allows ports to better communicate with ships, allowing for a more seamless journey to berth.

Healthcare

Healthcare

Healthcare providers are striving to improve patient outcomes through reliable, scalable solutions that can learn from the massive amounts of available data.

While electronic health records (EHRs) provide a basic foundation, a care collaboration platform could help healthcare professionals better understand patient needs, mitigate risks and improve follow-up care. Cognitive technology can help doctors use a wide variety of data to create a broad picture of each patient’s unique circumstances and develop more precise care plans.

Insurance

Insurance

Insurance companies must embrace innovation to stay ahead of increasing competition from both traditional providers and emerging insurtechs.

IBM Insurance uses blockchain, AI and platform solutions to help insurers drive profits by engaging new markets while managing costs. Developed in collaboration with a leading insurance provider, the IBM Insurance Platform can help bring insurance technology into the future with platform economics and partner ecosystems.

Manufacturing

Manufacturing

With supplies coming from multiple vendors and lots of equipment to maintain, the smallest disruptions can cause serious damage to manufacturing processes, leading to high costs and lost customers.

Manufacturers are using IBM technology to help improve every step of the process. Watson AI triggers alerts when weather patterns threaten deliveries, and IoT sensors help predict equipment failures before they occur. With these insights, companies can make adjustments to keep production running.

Music

Plastic Bank

What happens when you apply technology in new ways? Plastic Bank uses IBM Blockchain technology — tackling ocean plastic and global poverty with blockchain-based digital credits.

Retail

Retail

To remain competitive, retailers are looking to improve in all areas, from the store floor to the back office. Retail and consumer products companies are working with IBM to personalise customer interactions, understand the neighborhoods they serve, create dynamic store experiences and empower their store associates. But no matter the innovation, the customer remains at the center of it all.

Telecom and media

Telecom and media

Best-in-class care is the future of entertainment.

Event companies are working with IBM to use AI, IoT and cloud to develop the next generation of live experiences. Fans around the world will benefit from chatbots that can create a more personalised experience, and businesses can use hyperlocal data to better prepare for the effects that weather will have on events.
