IBM Claimed Company
There is no other company like IBM and there is no business professional like the IBMer. We are experts in nearly every technical scientific and business field. We are citizens of, and apply our expertise in, more than 170 countries. Yet we are united by a single purpose: to be essential. We do that by creating the most advanced technology to change how our clients work and run their businesses. And through them, IBMers change how the world works. The world is at a major turning point: technology is enabling entirely new forms of business operations, business models, industries and outcomes. We have exponentially more power to reach the full potential of our life's work than any humans before us. This is our vision for the future -- our belief in the rise of you -- this is: You to the power of IBM. “Every generation of IBMers has the opportunity –and, I believe, the responsibility –to invent a new IBM. This is our time.”— Ginni Rometty
