In sports and business, IBM is changing the game.

For two weeks every January, Tennis Australia welcomes hundreds of thousands of tennis fans to Melbourne Olympic Park for the Australian Open Grand Slam. Millions more around the world arrive via ausopen.com to catch the latest scores, match stats, player insights and breaking news - all powered by IBM data technologies.

Of course, the potential of IBM’s technologies goes way beyond tennis. If you’re in business and looking for a competitive advantage, applying IBM’s data analytics, cloud computing, mobile and social capabilities can be an absolute game changer.
