Job Description

IBM is one of the world‘s largest providers of information technology solutions and business consultancy. Our vision is to bring a new level of ‚smart‘ to how the world works, in other words, a place where people, businesses, governments and systems are interconnected and work together. A place where billions of people will live and work better.

Our clients increasingly define next-generation value at the intersection of big data and individual engagement, where capturing new front-end value depends on the end-to-end integration of enterprise data. As they consider the required transformation of their businesses, processes and workflows, they are asking: Who do I trust to lead me through this transition? Who will simplify the technology? And who creates the most immediate access to the next important innovation?

Now, as we move into the next phase of IBM’s evolution, our business units will be able to act with greater speed, efficiency and agility. For IBM Global Business Services (GBS), the business consulting unit of IBM, that means bringing together the capabilities – across IBM and from strategic partners – that can best help our clients unlock their next great possibility, now and into the future.
