Hyatt Regency, Ahmedabad

Two of the most transformational technologies that are ushering a new era of greater productivity, faster but secure insights, better decision-making, sustainable business operations and enhanced employee and customer experiences are Hybrid cloud and AI for Business. At IBM, we are helping enterprises put AI to work by infusing it across business needs:

Business Need: Responsibly scaling business-ready generative AI

CEOs globally believe competitive advantage will depend on who has the most advanced generative AI. IBM watsonx, the AI and data platform, is helping enterprises scale trustworthy, explainable, responsible AI across their business.

Business Need: Unlocking productivity with AI-powered automation

As businesses look to enhance efficiency, IBM Automation is helping them make their IT systems more proactive, the processes more efficient and the people more productive.

Business Need: Protecting data across hybrid environments

With rapid digital transformation and remote work on the rise, data has become a prominent by-product. As data is distributed across multiple platforms, protecting it from internal and external threats becomes crucial, enterprises must establish a robust data-centric cybersecurity program. IBM Security Guardium supports a modern, zero-trust approach to data security - no matter where your data resides.

We are excited to bring these capabilities to Ahmedabad, as part of the IBM AI for Business Summit on Jun 19th at Hyatt Regency, where you can experience them first-hand, engage with our tech wizards and network with industry peers.
