Apple CEO Tim Cook, left, CEO of Japan Post Holdings Taizo Nishimuro and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty announced a first-of-its-kind initiative to address economic and societal issues of Japan's senior citizens in New York City in April. Serving Seniors IBM, Apple and Japan Post Group recently collaborated on a first-of-its-kind initiative aimed at improving the quality of life for millions of Japanese senior citizens. Today, more than 33 million seniors make up about 25 percent of Japan's population, projected to grow to 40 percent over the next 40 years. The initiative will deliver iPads with IBMdeveloped apps and analytics to connect millions of seniors with services, healthcare, community and their families- for example, reminders and alerts about medications, exercise and diet, along with direct access to community activities and supporting services such as grocery shopping and job matching. It will also help expand the national Watch Over service, which checks on elderly clients and assures families about the well-being of their relatives. : SOURCE: IBM.COM Most In-Demand Software Developer Skill Sets Mobile s Big Data s Cloud s DevOps s UI SOURCE: CIO.COM 8 // JULY 2015 PHOTO: JON SIMON/FEATURE PHOTO SERVICE FOR IBM TECHBITS http://www.IBM.COM http://www.CIO.COM
