IBM & Weather

IBM & Weather Weather is perhaps the single largest external swing factor in business performance – responsible for an annual economic impact of nearly half a trillion dollars in the U.S. alone. In March 2015, IBM and The Weather Company formed a ground breaking global strategic alliance to integrate real-time weather insights into business to improve operational performance and decision-making. While weather prediction is increasingly precise, business systems generally assume every day is the same. Combining weather data with traditional business data and rich data from an unprecedented number of Internet of Things (IoT) enabled systems and devices is fundamentally transforming enterprise decision-making. By combining IBM’s cloud computing, industry consulting and analytics expertise with The Weather Company’s precision weather data and forecasts, the two companies can now enable entire industries to utilize understanding of weather on business outcomes and take action.
