Our work and our people can be found in all sorts of interesting places. IBMers are helping to transform healthcare, improving the retail shopping experience, re-routing traffic jams and even designing the next generation of fans in sports stadiums around the world. It’s the kind of thing we’ve been doing for more than 100 years.
