In Gartner’s recent 2021 “Vendor Rating: IBM”1 report, we are thrilled to have received a Strong rating for Technology/Methodology and an overall Positive rating. IBM also received a Positive rating in the Product/Service and Strategy categories2. We believe these ratings are due to the strength of our hybrid cloud and AI strategy supported by continuous innovation from IBM Research.

IBM delivers the hybrid cloud platform, software and services that transform any combination of infrastructure – public cloud, private cloud, multicloud, on-premises or the network edge – into a modern, flexible, scalable and secure engine for enterprise growth. Our partner ecosystem strategy allows clients the freedom to choose the software and solutions they need. Leveraging such capabilities like IBM Garage, we help clients build upon what they have to reinvent their businesses for the digital era.

Reinventing businesses also requires access to the latest advancements in technology. This is where IBM Research comes in - a crucial innovation pipeline for our clients. Research drive advances across cloud, AI and the quantum computing to ensure that these advancements are built directly into products and services. This allows to offer a seamless hybrid cloud platform, flexible, composable computing, agility through automation, and security, compliance and reliability.
IBM’s share of the $1 trillion opportunity for cloud
We have all of the pieces we need to capture more than our share of the $1 trillion public cloud opportunity as enterprises act to modernize and transform themselves for the era of AI. Now is the time to focus on IBM’s core mission as the hybrid cloud and AI company. There has never been a time like this. And to us, we have never been better positioned to win.
