Disaster relief in communities

Agile responses, long-term commitments

For decades, IBM has responded to major disasters and significant crises in the communities in which we live, work and do business. Today, our responses integrate advanced technologies with the expertise of IBMers around the world who have the desire and training to serve. We deliver essential components of what it takes for affected areas and individuals to regroup, rebuild and recover — including solutions to gather and share data about affected populations, relief efforts and the deployment of technologies. IBMers also manage the rollout of technology solutions to help regions or even countries get back on track. And we remain engaged for months or years after an event to help with recovery.
