Transforming Businesses: Craig Hayman Shares Insight on IBM’s Smarter Commerce Initiative

May 10th, 2012

It's been more than a year since IBM unveiled its Smarter Commerce initiative, offering software and services to help companies transform their buy, market, sell, and service processes and more quickly respond to the demands of today's digitally transformed marketplace.  This new approach empowers companies with business analytics and data, creating a supply chain prepared for the unpredictable.

As computing continues to evolve, the next generation of IT leaders like those competing in the ACM-ICPC will begin to migrate to careers focusing on big data, such as Smarter Commerce.

Podcast host Christine Guerrini welcomes Craig Hayman, General Manager of IBM Industry Solutions, to talk about IBM's innovative strategies and solutions, and ways in which they function in businesses today.  He'll also share how students can learn more about Smarter Commerce at the IBM Technology Showcase at World Finals.
