IBM Expands Relationship with AWS

IBM has expanded its relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help mutual clients operationalize and derive value from generative artificial intelligence (AI). As part of this relationship,, IBM Consulting plans to deepen its generative AI expertise on AWS by training 10,000 consultants by the end of 2024.

The two organizations also plan to deliver joint solutions and services upgraded with generative AI capabilities designed to help clients across critical use cases.

IBM Consulting and AWS serve clients across a variety of industries with a range of AI solutions and services. Now, they are enhancing those solutions and services with the power of generative AI designed to help clients integrate AI into business and IT operations building on AWS. IBM Consulting and AWS plan to start with these specific solutions:

  •  Contact Center Modernization with Amazon Connect – IBM Consulting worked with AWS to create summarization and categorization functions for voice and digital interactions using generative AI, which are designed to allow for transfers between the chatbot and live agent and provide the agent with summarized details that expedite resolution times and improve quality management.
  • Platform Services on AWS – Initially introduced last November, the offering is upgraded with generative AI to manage the entire cloud value chain including IT Ops, automation, and platform engineering better. The generative AI capabilities give clients tools to enhance business serviceability and availability for their applications hosted on AWS through intelligent issue resolution and observability techniques. Clients can expect an improvement of uptime and mean time repair which means they can act quickly and effectively to potential issues that arise.
  • Supply Chain Ensemble on AWS – This offering will introduce a virtual assistant that can help accelerate and augment the work of supply chain professionals as they aim to deliver on customer expectations, optimize inventories, reduce costs, streamline logistics, and assess supply chain risks.

Additionally, for clients looking to modernize on AWS, IBM Consulting plans to integrate AWS generative AI services into its proprietary IBM Consulting Cloud Accelerator to help accelerate the cloud transformation process. This will help with reverse engineering, code generation and code conversion.
