Based on real-time simulation and weather data insights, driver Max Verstappen made two pit stops and replaced new tires. This has never happened in F1 history. He eventually won the game.
IBM and Inspur jointly established Inspur Business Machine Co., Ltd. last year, which is controlled by Inspur.serverVendors, research and development, production and sales of server systems supporting Power processors and OpenPOWER servers based on open POWER technology for China and the “One Belt, One Road” national market.
In the past year, Inspur commercial machine has achieved profitability, which proves that the local independent research and development, on-demand IBM Power Systems overall solution is welcomed by users.
IBM LinuxONE is a secure, efficient and scalable Linux platform in a cloudy environment. It can run 30 billion transactions per day, encrypt all data, and the key applications can be safely clouded, simplifying the IT architecture, and providing customers with peace of mind and peace of mind. .
"A" means "AI". IBM uses a full range of AI video analytics to help build digital twins such as warehousing, enabling real-time sandboxing in computers to enable information integration, data visualization, simulation analysis, and intelligence. decision making.
"B" refers to the blockchain (Blockchain). IBM has used blockchain technology in a wide range of industries including finance, retail, transportation, and high technology. According to the latest HfS research report, IBM ranks first in the global enterprise blockchain services.
“C” refers to cloud computing (Cloud). As a leader in hybrid cloud, IBM also has mature applications and ecological environments in China.
A new era of business reshaping has arrived, and the company's cloud journey is dramatically changing the company's business processes and driving innovation, from the initial necessity of the architectural field to the key business strategy for the success of the business transformation.
IBM Global Business Services Cloud Consulting Services uses a globally developed methodology and tools (Cloud Innovate) to provide enterprises with end-to-end consulting planning, design roadmaps and architectural services. Full support for mixed cloud and cloudy transformation services at all stages.
To drive the cognitive transformation of the enterprise, IBM has launched IBM Garage Innovation, which aims to develop the power of agile innovation and inspire a change in the way it works. IBM garage innovation will be a physical representation of the enterprise's transformation of digital and AI-driven.
Here, IBM experts and customers, employees can collide with new ideas face to face, and quickly test, and then decide to give up or optimize these ideas. Eliminate traditional procedures and barriers in an environment designed to break away from everyday tasks, encourage employees to learn through practice, quickly identify errors and continually optimize to inspire organizational change.
The next section covers IBM's Smart+Strategy solutions for a wide range of industries, including healthcare, finance, manufacturing, and retail.
IBM uses artificial intelligence and big data analytics technology in the medical field to help solve multiple problems in the health of cancer and genetics, medical imaging, life sciences, health management, and medical payments. Through cooperation with Baiyang, Zhongdian, etc., IBM medical solutions have been launched in China.
Based on IBM Watson artificial intelligence technology, Watson for Oncology assists clinicians in making personalized cancer treatment decisions. At present, Watson's oncology solution has been clinically applied to more than 300 hospitals in 25 countries (including 100 hospitals in China), and has adjuvant treatment for more than 140,000 cancer patients.
Financial technology (FinTech) is a hot word for transforming the financial industry in recent years. IBM has mature solutions for SMEs, banks, and back-end data centers.
