IBM: Who are we?



What do you think of when you hear IBM - Mainframes? Hard drives? The Personal Computer?

We don’t sell tabulating machines, laptops or intel servers anymore - we’re a new IBM, and possibly not like you imagined. For a start, we use MAC’s (yes, really!), and our leaders wear jeans. We apply design thinking – and have the post-it’s to prove it. We enable start-ups to grow, and are transforming healthcare – we’re even curing disease! We are defining the cognitive era, and this is just the beginning. What can YOU do with IBM?

Founded in 1911, IBM has celebrated over 100 years of constant innovation. From personal computers to the barcode, from floppy disks to outer space, IBM has been there.


“We remain dedicated to leading the world into a more prosperous and progressive future; to creating a world that is fairer, more diverse, more tolerant, more just.”

– Virginia M (Ginni) Rometty
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
