Why We Partnered with IBM

Being part of a community means collaborating, sharing knowledge and supporting one another in our everyday challenges. Together, Data Council and IBM share the same foundational belief that we can connect data folks via forums, blogs, events and face-to-face networking and empower one another to put our smarts to work. You can find an IBM community that fits you below:

IBM partners with most of the major open source communities that drive today’s businesses. In communities like Linux, Java, Hyperledger, Kubernetes, CNCF, Node.js and more, their developers are collaborators and committers, insisting on open governance, contributing code, helping with licensing, and pushing the technology forward.

The IBM Data Science Community offers a constant stream of freshly updated content including featured blogs and forums for discussion and collaboration; access to the latest white papers, webcasts, presentations, and research for members, by members.
