Building solutions for today's challenges with tomorrow's technology

jStart Emerging Technology Adoption Process

Many clients require timely solutions to very specific business needs that current products do not deliver. Delivering more than just fast, customized solutions, the IBM jStart Team implements and validates emerging technologies through the team’s engagements. Working with early adopters, those who want to stay ahead of the curve, the team turns ideas into software solutions. This provides clients with an attractive value proposition while allowing IBM to capitalize upon emerging business opportunities through the technologies leveraged by jStart.

Closely aligned with the Emerging Technology development process, the jStart engagement approach applies to specific client business needs. When these technologies are barely more than disparate concepts, jStart engages early adopters to refine and validate them. Once jStart proves concept validity, they are adopted by larger entities to become IBM products.

“Basically, we are a group of innovators. We have people that like to tinker--they're very inquisitive, they like to take things apart and put them back together.”

Jim Smith, Chief Architect and Manager of jStart's client engagement team
