Smarter Planet

IBM introduced its Smarter Planet vision in 2008 to 2009, with an award-winning marketing campaign designed to explain how recent computing advances can be put to use for profound impact on the world’s interconnected systems—and spur further thinking. Since then, some of the largest global businesses have increasingly worked to bring data-rich measurement, greater intelligence and higher optimization to systems that underpin their businesses, and IBM has continued to drive large-scale engagement with Smarter Planet thinking.
