No man (or woman) is an island

As we settle into our second week here in Athens, I am reminded of this saying. Just as solutions for IBM clients don’t come together to deliver value magically, neither do solutions to pressing issues for cities. Within IBM, we need individuals and teams to effectively combine our services, software and hardware in very specific ways to help solve our client’s most challenging problems. Why should we expect it to be any different for municipalities? The good news is that we are already seeing many of the key ingredients that can help solve some of core issues in Athens. I am encouraged after our first week of meetings spanning most of the stakeholders in Athens, and I am hopeful that our efforts can serve as a catalyst for this wonderful city. It is the least we can do after we have been so graciously received by our many hosts.
