ibm-logo.jpgFor years, IBMers have been working with companies, cities and communities around the world to build a Smarter Planet. We’ve seen enormous advances, as leaders are using an explosion of data to transform their enterprises and institutions through analytics, mobile technology, social business and the cloud. We’ve also seen how this new era is starting to create winners. They’re changing how their decisions are made. They’re redesigning how their teams work, reassessing how to serve their customers, and changing the very nature of business. Businesses know that innovation comes from collaboration. And collaboration comes from everywhere. Firms that embrace the power of social technologies will unleash the productivity and innovation throughout the entire value chain—from employees to partners to suppliers to customers.
