Top Executive: Arvind Krishna, CEO
There’s a reason some of the biggest companies in the world are teaming with IBM on breakthrough 5G and edge applications: the company’s proven multi-cloud innovation track record and AI capabilities. Among the companies that have teamed with IBM on 5G and edge computing innovation is telecom behemoths Verizon and Vodafone.
IBM President Jim Whitehurst told CRN earlier this year at a BoB Conference keynote session that the edge explosion opens up “tremendous” opportunities for IBM partners. “The possibilities are almost limitless when you start saying, I’m taking away the constraint that this thing runs in a datacenter and all of a sudden from sensor data all the way out to the edge you can start thinking about where and how you want to add value through all of that.”
