Presenting the new “One IBM” Web Experience

This briefing document will help you understand the changes occurring on IBM’s public Web site so that you can help your customers use it to save time and accomplish more.

WHAT:

On Friday, November 5, we will take a significant step in making it easier for customers to access IBM\'s products, services, and business expertise by launching a major redesign of www.ibm.com -- the first in four years.

  • Delivers a unified “One IBM” facing our customers and visitors
  • Groups the most common tasks to focus on the customer’s objective – what the visitor came to do
  • Presents information pulled horizontally from across IBM using a powerful task-based navigation model with behind-the-scenes search

WHEN:

The launch of "One IBM" Phase 1 begins November 5, 11 pm, in the G9 countries (Australia, Japan, China, France, Germany, Italy, the UK, Canada and the United States) and continues with deployments in the remaining 74 countries in 2005.

the current home page design was launched in early 2003

More than 70% of clicks go to masthead links

Prominent links highlight key customer sets, industries and services

Research findings have driven the changes incorporated in the new design
  • Customers view IBM as a single company and want to do business with us as one entity
    • “Is…this site…(a) vehicle for internal organizations to pursue their own unique strategies and ideas?”
    • “We believe that IBM’s current…approach is likely to become increasingly unpopular with site visitors”
  • Site must “make information easy to find…in the context of the customer’s businessproblem or task …allow themto quickly select the right product”
  • One IBM Web Experience changes will move IBM into a leadership position versus competitors
