The reason we will all begin to
transform our systems, operations,
enterprises and personal lives to take
advantage of a smart planet isn’t just
because we can.
It’s because we must.
We’ve thought about IT as the world of data centres,
software, PCs, routers, bandwidth.
We’ve thought about infrastructure as the world of
buildings, factories, hospitals, roads, pipelines.
Those worlds are converging.
We’re confident that the world can become smarter.
We’re building it with our clients.
