IBM is focused on elegance and simplicity in our approach to Big Data and Analytics on the cloud.

Data Science and Machine Learning; our clients need to be prepared to embrace new ways of developing insights through personalised experiences and to streamline operations.
• Open Source; a commitment to openness, leveraging technologies like Hadoop and Spark in order to get the benefits of speed and innovation.
• Unified Governance; enabling better insights and compliance across all data types. We deliver solutions for regulatory requirements such as GDPR.
• Hybrid Data Management; the world is moving away from a hard split between structured and unstructured data towards a single data fabric, that must be managed accordingly.
• Data Analytics & Visualisation; all stakeholders in an organisation need to be empowered, not just a few specialists - they need to be able to make data driven decisions quickly and easily.
