Watch Out, Amazon And Microsoft: IBM Has 16,000 AI Engagements, 400 Blockchain, Several Quantum


(Note: After an award-winning career in the media business covering the tech industry, Bob Evans was VP of Strategic Communications at SAP in 2011, and Chief Communications Officer at Oracle from 2012 to 2016. He now runs his own firm, Evans Strategic Communications LLC.)

CLOUD WARS — Hammering home the radical transformation IBM’s undergone during the last few years ago, CEO Ginni Rometty claimed last week that IBM has become the world leader in enterprise AI with 16,000 client engagements, in Blockchain with 400 active client engagements, and in the highly advanced realm of quantum computing with live projects underway with JPMorganChase, Daimler and others.

Those striking numbers underscore not only IBM’s aggressive moves into enterprise IT’s highest-potential markets, but also the legitimacy of the company’s claims that it has earned its way into the very top of the wickedly competitive cloud-computing marketplace with Microsoft and Amazon.
