International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) je kompanija koja se bavi računarskim tehnologijama sa sedištem u Armonku u SAD. Osnovana je 1888 a postala je korporacija 15. juna 1911. Bavi se proizvodnjom računarskog hardvera, softvera, uslugama, hostingom i konsaltingom. IBM je najveća kompanija na svetu koja se bavi informacionim tehnologijama i drži najveći broj patenata u toj oblasti.

IBM ima danas oko 332000 zaposlenih (od toga 195000 tehničara i inženjera) i godišnje prihode od oko 91 milijarde dolara (podatak iz 2005. godine). Poslednjih godina prihodi od sektora usluga i konsaltinga su premašili prihode od proizvodnje.

IBM je poznat i po tome sto je skoro 80 godina zahtevao od svojih zaposlenih da na posao dolaze u tamnoplavom odelu i beloj košulji sa crnom kravatom. Sa ovom praksom prekinuto je sredinom devedesetih godina prošlog veka.
