IBM Services is the company’s $17B consulting arm. They are an elite team of strategists who work at the intersection of business and technology, solving for problems like business continuity, remote workforces, and virtual client engagement for the world’s largest companies.
Consultants are also responsible for introducing software like Watson Analytics and Studio to client workplaces.
Because these products rely on data visualization, it’s crucial that representatives understand how it works. Managing Partner Jesus Mantas felt as though his team could use a refresher in 2019, and knowing that Accurat was responsible for developing Design Language, he asked us to work with his team next.
We built a curriculum comprised of three modules to give IBM Services employees a crash course on data visualization and its relevance to AI. Why? As stated in section 1.5, “Data visualization can provide the user with a way to access the black box of AI processes.”
