More about the company: Cities are the focal points for the transformation from the traditional "bricks-and-mortar" drivers of economic growth to an economy based on "brains and creativity." Competitive differentiation today is more likely to be based on the ability of the workforce to create and absorb skills and innovation than on traditional drivers such as available resources or manufacturing prowess. In the immediate future cities will play a much larger role in talent-based economic development.
The IBM extensive portfolio of solutions and implementation assets - continually refined in engagements with clients around the world -- can help cities compete in this new economic environment. Our government industry framework can help apply advanced information technology, analytics and systems thinking to develop a more citizen-centric approach to services. In doing so, cities can better attract, create, enable and retain their citizens' skills, knowledge and innovation while driving transformative change, improving organizational accountability, and reducing risk.
IBM adds value, leveraging the unparalleled resources of the entire IBM Corporation, including IBM Research, the Center for the Business of Government, the Institute for Electronic Government and a global network of strategic relationships.
