This meetup is part of a series that focuses on co-creation in today's big tech businesses with IBM. The theme of this particular meetup is "Ways and experiences of embracing Design Thinking & rapid prototyping to win in the age of AI and digital innovation". The meetup series addresses entrepreneurs, startups, and larger consulting companies. It focuses on sharing experiences and insights into how to succeed in building great new businesses and services with the latest tech available.
Enterprises and startups alike have realized the pressing need to visualize how a system is going to be consumed by end users and to quickly build prototypes to validate this. These skills will allow them to to win in digitization programs or to navigate the product-market fit while securing investments- Also, with AI making its way into enterprises and new startup apps, machine learning needs to be paired with organizational understanding and great UX to earn the trust that will enable a closer man-machine collaboration than ever before. For consulting companies, the ability to turn a customer dialogue idea, through design and prototype, into a demo in front of the client in a matter of weeks have become key to win in enterprise digitalization programs. Startups need to have the ability to empathize with intended audiences and build MVP's in their DNA. Such ability helps validate or discard hypothesis in the search for market fit, all while proving to investors they're on the right track.
To address this, we have developed an open methodology called Bluemix Garage, tested in IBM Garage teams across the globe trained in co-creation with partner and clients. Bluemix Garage combines industry best practices in Design Thinking, Lean Startup, Agile Development, and DevOps to build and deliver innovative solutions in all new technology available and is the method of choice when IBM develops new tailored cognitive systems for clients.
We want to share our technology, methodology, and experiences from within and from co-creators to inspire and help guide new businesses and solutions around big tech of today! Join our meetup here.
