IBM To Release "IBM and the Future of Shopping" Podcast


ARMONK, N.Y -- Sept. 23, 2005 -- IBM announced that the third podcast in its inaugural series, “IBM and the Future of . . .” is available on its investor Web site. The podcast is called “IBM and the Future of Shopping.”

“IBM and the Future of Shopping” explores how the deployment of new technologies will change the way we shop and how retailers interact with us as their customers. The application of network technologies, the emergence of a new generation of consumers, along with radical innovation in the nature of customer relationships, are likely to make shopping a very different experience in a few years than the one we are familiar with today. The podcast is hosted by Christopher Barger and includes a discussion with Joe Gagnon of IBM Business Consulting Services and Christopher Wong, an IBM retail-industry strategist. Both are experts in the retail industry and work frequently with clients.

The podcast is available on IBM’s investor Web site, at

While the current information on its investor Web site is largely historical, IBM’s podcast series will discuss both industry-wide trends and IBM specific innovations in a variety of emerging business and technology areas.

Future topics will include “IBM and the Future of . . .” healthcare, banking, R&D and computer gaming.
