Summit Highlights

Today’s workplace has turned into a hybrid of home and office, children are learning in virtual and in-person schools and many businesses have had to transform faster than ever. The year 2020 has accelerated a new reality in which work and life are inextricably linked.

With flexibility and creativity, people are discovering ways to work smarter. The same is true of businesses; a hybrid cloud approach is enabling them to bring together the previously siloed aspects of work to make new connections. With hybrid cloud and A.I., technology is helping businesses grow smarter and stronger.

Join IBM Virtual Summit 2021 Hong Kong, and discover what professionals of every industry are doing to grow stronger with greater flexibility and resilience in a world gone hybrid.
