IBM is transforming its business to take advantage of seismic shifts in the way technology is used.
Strong globalisation is propelled by a faster flow of information, making it easier for businesses to collaborate.
The computerisation of everything from kitchen appliances to power lines is making the planet ‘smarter’. And customers are seeking to innovate more than ever before with technology.
IBM is putting these changes at the heart of its strategy, but it faces challenges ahead as businesses focus on smaller IT contracts, rather than the mega-deals of the past, and cloud computing disrupts traditional business models.
This special nine-page report from Computer Weekly analyses the challenges facing IBM, its financial performance, the services it offers, its place in the IT market and its future strategy.
Packed with graphs and diagrams, the report is essential reading for any organisation working with, or thinking of working with IBM.
