Accelerating Innovation at the IBM Impact Global Conference

by James Fairweather | May 9, 2014 | No Comments

Global Web ConnectionsWe just got back from the IBM Impact 2014 Global Conference, where IT and business professionals come together to showcase innovative ways to achieve business agility, learn the latest trends and quickly build skills in WebSphere, Process Innovation, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Mobile and Cloud solutions. I was honored to speak at the event and share Pitney Bowes’ unique company heritage and insights on our digital commerce capabilities and location-based services.

For many, many years, we have provided secure, physical equipment solutions that help our clients power their commerce – by helping them deliver transactional and marketing messages to their customers. To extend the reach and ease of integration to these capabilities, Pitney Bowes recently partnered with IBM in their new “BlueMix” API marketplace. BlueMix provides a platform as a service, available in the cloud – an open, integrated development experience that scales to any level, and Pitney Bowes is among the first third-party services now available to developers and companies on this new Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Through BlueMix we are offering location services that can help businesses unearth deeper connections between their customers, their geography, and their networks to deliver more personalized services and contextually relevant experiences.

As such, we were excited to join the conference to discuss how Pitney Bowes is accelerating innovation in 2014:

  • Pitney Bowes securely facilitates over $15B in Postal payments through its meters. IBM plays a big part in that solution, helping us to securely manage our infrastructure with its cryptographic co-processing cards. 
  • Today, we also facilitate over $1.3B in Postal payments through our ecommerce API’s.
  • By integrating our location intelligence services, ecommerce services, and data quality capabilities into BlueMix, we can put them into the hands of thousands of co-innovators who can now build solutions powered by Pitney Bowes’ differentiated capabilities.
  • We plan to extend our involvement in the IBM Cloud Marketplace – with services for ecommerce, data quality, and additional location based functions over the coming quarters. This will ultimately increase the rate at which developers can integrate Pitney Bowes capabilities to achieve improved client business outcomes.

We are excited to continue to work with IBM to “accelerate innovation.” For more information on our collaboration with IBM on Hybrid Cloud Location Services, check out the press release here.
