Throughout history, location has played a key role in the development and progress of people and societies.

As a company of over 8000 employees all focused on the concept of location and the potential it has to radically improve the way we do business, the way we get around and the way we live, we are shaping the future by redefining what was formerly known as a map.

In 1985, we began with the simple goal to digitize mapping and pioneer in-car navigation systems. Over the next three decades, as NAVTEQ and Nokia, we’ve built a legacy in mapping technology.

Today, we're creating living three-dimensional maps that grow upwards, breathing with layers of information and insights. And we're looking beyond.

From autonomous driving, to the Internet of Things, we are building the future of location technology through strategic partnerships. Together we’re building open solutions for the future.

IBM

The core objective of IBM is to support companies of all sizes in the digital transformation of their business models and to make the opportunities of digitalization available to them. However, digitization is only the prerequisite for greater benefits, and several other initiatives have to be taken to achieve real business results: business analytics, cloud computing, IoT, security and artificial intelligence. These strategic fields provide IBM with both the foundation of their ever-expanding portfolio of solutions and the foundation of their ongoing transformation to becoming a Cognitive Solutions and Cloud Platform Provider.
