IBM is a multinational technology and consulting corporation, with headquarters in New York but a global presence. IBM manufactures and markets computer hardware and software, and offers infrastructure, hosting and consulting services in areas ranging from mainframe computers to nanotechnology. The company was founded in 1911 and over the years has grown through acquisition into its present state.

IBM initially made its profits largely from selling hardware, but these days it is more of a software solutions and services company. It currently stresses the delivery, from smarter computing, technology and process, of better business outcomes for the smarter planet. IBM has initiated various emerging open standards and open environment initiatives (such as Eclipse, Jazz, OSLC, RELM and so on) and owns many significant brands such as DB2 Universal Database, WebSphere, and System z.
