The technology ecosystem is rapidly evolving and our Business Partners have continuously transformed in order to provide increased value to our clients. Shifts to cloud, as-a-service offerings and digital have resulted in new customers and purchasing behaviors. Today, buyers have diversified and are acquiring industry- and domain-specific solutions.
IBM is focused on helping our Business Partners become highly differentiated to succeed in the Cognitive Era. Together over time, we have made tremendous progress and demonstrated strong proof points on how cognitive computing delivered through cloud is augmenting clients’ existing solutions and platforms. Let me take a moment to talk about some of the great outcomes that Business Partners have helped create across Asia Pacific.
Talview, an IBM Beacon Award winner, is leveraging IBM cognitive computing technology to disrupt the global recruitment industry.
