IBM CEO: AI, Hybrid Cloud The ‘Most Transformational Enterprise Technologies’

Wade Tyler Millward

‘Hybrid cloud is about offering clients a platform that can drive value across these different environments. Our platform, based on Red Hat, allows our clients to consume software driven by open-source innovation,’ says IBM CEO Arvind Krishna.

IBM Partners ‘Crucial’

As demographic shifts continue to add pressure to modern economies, coupled with wage inflation, companies are eager to deploy AI and automation capabilities at scale to boost their levels of productivity.

That is what IBM is helping companies bring to bear. In the context of enterprise, you’re seeing four main use cases emerge. AI to interact and converse. AI to automate IT processes. AI to extract knowledge and insights. And finally, AI to automate business workflows, such as HR, supply chain and financial reporting.

We are working to bring these capabilities to clients across all industries. For instance, this quarter, IBM Consulting partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to automate business workflows related to the delivery of pension benefits. This helps free up valuable time of their staff and speeds up the processing of claims made by the veterans most in need.

Our partner ecosystem is a crucial element of our strategy. Each quarter, we continue to expand the work we do with partners to serve our joint clients. For instance, we recently announced an expansion of a partnership with VMware to help clients in regulated industries more easily move workloads to the cloud, with IBM Consulting now serving as a GSI partner for VMware.

We announced that Red Hat and Dell are launching a set of containerized solutions aimed at simplifying the management of multi-cloud environments on premises. … These actions represent another step in our efforts to seize this opportunity to ecosystem relationships and our technology offerings.
