IBM

International Business Machines Corporation, better known as IBM, is one of the biggest technology companies in the world, with operations in more than 170 countries and over 345,000 employees worldwide. IBM is best known for producing and selling computer hardware and software, as well as cloud computing and data analytics. The company has also served as a major research and development corporation over the years, with significant inventions like the floppy disk, the hard disk drive, and the UPC barcode. IBM researchers have been awarded Nobel Prizes, Turing Awards, and other top honors for their work throughout its history. In May 2021, IBM teamed up with rivals Microsoft and Google on a project designed to help companies better defend against hackers and other cybersecurity problems. That same month, the company unveiled “the world’s smallest and most powerful microchip,” which IBM says could quadruple the battery life of cell phones one day.
