A SMARTER PLANET
The list of problems our planet faces is well-known: A financial crisis. Climate disruption. Energy geopolitics. Food supply hazards.
What they show is that we're all connected, today like never before: economically, socially and technically. When a crisis occurs on one part of the planet, it can bring problems to another part, within days or even hours.
Yet this challenge is also an opportunity, and now is the time to seize it. People around the world are ready for change. And IBM is ready for it too. In fact, we're starting a conversation with the world because we think now is the time to make changes for the better.
IBM's vision is to bring a new level of intelligence to how the world works - how every person, business, organization, government, natural system, and man-made system interacts. Each interaction represents a chance to do something better, more efficiently, more productively. But more than that, as the systems of the planet become smarter, we have a chance to open up meaningful new possibilities for progress.

OUR VALUES AT WORK
In 2003, IBM undertook the first disciplined reexamination of our values in nearly 100 years. Through “ValuesJam” – an unprecedented 72-hour discussion on IBM’s global intranet – IBMers came together to define the essence of the company. The result? A set of core values – defined by IBMers for IBMers – that shape everything we do and every choice we make on behalf of the company.
The shared set of values helps us make decisions and, in the process, makes our company great. But their real influence occurs when we apply these values to our personal work and our interactions with one another and the wider world.

BEST & BRIGHTEST
The IBM culture is one that prizes intelligence and innovation. IBMers are inquisitive people motivated by high achievement. And it shows.
In addition to five Nobel prizes, IBM researchers have been recognized with seven U.S. National Medals of Technology, five National Medals of Science and 21 memberships in the National Academy of Sciences.
IBM Research has more than 59 members of the National Academy of Engineering and well over 300 industry organization fellows. The company has seen eight inductees in the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
And, for each of the past 15 years (1993—2007), IBM has been granted more U.S. patents than any other company. IBM has invested approximately $5 billion per year in research, development and engineering since 1996, and has a current active portfolio of over 40,000 patents worldwide.

Even in a company with over 386,000 employees in more than 170 countries, collaborative technology and tools have enabled IBMers to connect to each other, and feel a sense of belonging within the IBM global team.
Collaboration tools enable IBMers to reach out to colleagues, build a sense of community, and respond to challenges that cross the boundaries of the company, to capitalize on the vast network of IBM experts at all levels around the world.
IBMers today are using the latest Web 2.0 technology to take information sharing and team building to a whole new level, in turn driving performance, innovation and business growth. On a typical day, IBMers exchange e-mail and instant messages, search the company's global employee phone directory, attend virtual meetings, and socialize via online clubs and Facebook-like internal websites.

Society’s energy- and climate-related issues are at the top of our strategic agenda. At IBM, we recognize that information technology plays an extremely important role in solving these global issues.

THE WAY WE THINK
What does it take to change the way the world works?
For nearly a century, businesses, institutions and individuals have sought a relationship with IBM because of the company's unique ability to conceptualize opportunities, to analyze developments and to re-imagine how the world could work. At the most basic level, IBM’s defining value over the years has not been our assets, our size or offerings. It has been the way we think.

Since IBM first started experimenting with virtual worlds almost a year ago, progress has been rapid. We’ve already built virtual retail storefronts for Sears and Circuit City as well as new hire training environments for other forward-thinking clients. Our chairman, Sam Palmisano, even has his own avatar. IBM was the first company to host private regions of the Second Life Grid on its own servers, and is partnering with Linden Lab, Second Life creator, to develop open standards-based technologies that will enhance emerging virtual worlds.
We’re developing virtual commerce solutions through the use of a richer, more immersive Web environment, and solving business problems in ways never thought possible.
We’re even looking at the next generation of virtual, open community collaboration on the Web. We call it “3-D Internet,” and we believe it’s the next phase of the Internet's evolution.
