New York-based technology and consulting corporation IBM on Monday launched new cloud-based industry platforms, thereby expanding its business solution capabilities, the company said.
“Cloud business innovation centres provide an opportunity for clients around the world to work side-by-side with IBM solution consultants, researchers, digital marketing and experience design experts to personalise the industry platforms to their specific needs,” the company said in a statement.
The new industry platforms include retail consumer experience, personalised learning and insights for a connected world.
While retail consumer experience platform will empower retailers to quickly deploy increasingly sophisticated engagement capabilities driven by contextual, relevant, multi-channel, end-to-end personalisation, the personalised learning platform will deliver data-driven personalised learning to empower educators, to help students reach their full potential and for corporations to address fast moving learning needs within their organisations, IBM said.
The insight platform will turn vast volumes of data from multiple sources into insights that can be sold to ecosystem partners or used to inform new business models, improve customer service and business operations, it added.
As part of this initiative, the company also said that it was opening the first IBM cloud business innovation centre in Bengaluru.
“Our portfolio of cloud business solutions is a recognition of the mandate for speed and time to value, along with the requirement of clients to personalise business solutions to their own processes and culture and deploy them via the cloud,” said Sanjay Rishi, managing partner for IBM cloud consulting services.
