“ Our new collaboration environment makes it even easier for our people to drive business outcomes. ”
Ed Brill, Vice President, IBM
IBM is a global technology and innovation company headquartered in Armonk, NY. It is the largest technology and consulting employer in the world, with more than 400,000 employees serving clients in 170 countries.
To support innovation and offer integrated mail and collaboration experiences as it became a cloud platform company, IBM aimed to transition all employees to IBM® Verse™ quickly and non-disruptively.
In just nine months, IBM delivered a cloud-based collaboration platform to support its entire business community of 500,000 users—creating a central space to help its people share ideas seamlessly.
IBM replaced more than 430 on-premises mail servers with a cognitive collaboration platform—saving millions of dollars per year, nurturing innovation and shortening time to market for new services.
