IBM has always had a strong heritage of making substantive contributions to communities in which we work and live. Since IBM began operating in Singapore in 1953, our presence and investments in Singapore have grown many times over - in size and variety.

We have also actively aligned both our business and corporate citizenship activities to Singapore's Smart Nation agenda - including improving liveability and sustainability in urban environments, cultivating future ready skills and talents, and helping to build inclusive communities.

Today, IBM continues to make strategic investments in Singapore to deliver higher value to our clients. We are working with customers around the world to help them become cognitive businesses, by applying IBM's technology and expertise to unlock the value in data and uncover insight in every decision.
