Our Ecosystem

In addition to its strategic partnership with IBM, InnoBoost has access to a large network of start-ups and other innovative companies that provide it with the technological building blocks it needs to incubate its solutions. Some of these partnerships grant us exclusive resale rights on the Swiss territory.

IBM, a Key Partner

Our most important partnership to date is the result of a long-standing collaboration. Indeed, the majority of InnoBoost’s employees come from a former key partner of IBM, which was well known in the western Swiss market for almost 20 years until its takeover.

In addition to detailed knowledge of IBM’s internal processes, we have extensive knowledge of the product portfolio of servers, storage and software, in particular the “Cognitive Systems” range and what IBM calls “new workloads” (everything related to GNU/Linux and the cloud).

InnoBoost’s technical quality is publicly recognized by IBM, to the point that it has awarded its CTO four years in a row the status of “IBM Champion for Power” – the highest technical distinction for a non-IBM employee. Among other benefits, this gives InnoBoost early access to strategic information such as roadmaps and strategic directions, so that we can better advise our customers on their infrastructure evolution strategy.

A diverse ecosystem

InnoBoost’s attraction towards hybrid cloud solutions, agile development and deployment and the world of open source software naturally led to a partnership with Red Hat. This partnership revolves around the operating system (RHEL), containers (OpenShift) and automation (Ansible).

The long experience of InnoBoost employees in the field of high-performance computing (HPC) and AI is reflected in the partnership with Lenovo, particularly since its takeover of IBM’s “System x” business.

Empow enables InnoBoost to offer the Swiss market a unique security orchestration solution that complements the other partnerships in an advantageous way.

The objective of ITNB is to preventively, predictively, and proactively help clients manage and secure their IT infrastructure, by offering unique structured cybersecurity solutions with 24/7 services such as Security Operation Centre, behaviour analysis and AI automation, including a single human point of contact. This helps InnoBoost propose high value-added security services to its customers.

InnoBoost also works with a broad ecosystem of American and European startups.
