Description

Event abstract

IBM is at the center of computing’s history and future like few other enterprises in the world. Today it is a globally integrated technology company headquartered in Armonk, New York. In its 103-year history of solving problems and providing leading-edge technology to businesses, governments and non-profits, it has had only nine chief executives. In this edition of Revolutionaries, we welcome Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Ginni Rometty.

Ginni Rometty began her career at IBM 33 years ago and has held a series of leadership positions, most recently as Senior Vice President and Group Executive, IBM Sales, Marketing and Strategy. In January 2012 she was appointed to her current position as the company’s chief executive.

Under her leadership, IBM is embarking on a bold transformation agenda to lead in a new era of computing, where unprecedented amounts of data are being generated every moment, powerful business and technology services are accessed via the cloud, and people are connecting in new ways through mobile and social networks, placing new demands on security.

This event is part of the Museum's acclaimed Revolutionaries speaker series, featuring renowned innovators, business and technology leaders, and authors in enthralling conversations often with leading journalists. Our audiences learn about the process of innovation, its risks and rewards, and failure that led to ultimate success.
