Is it time for IBM to say 'Goodbye to the Machine'?

I would wager that IBM is not actually exiting the server business, it is just shifting positions.

Blog-post by,

I pulled this title off a recent 451 Group research paper, published July 10, 2014, and although I have written previous blogs on IBM departing the server business, I don’t believe that IBM is anywhere close to saying “Goodbye to the Machine”. The 451 Group article notes that for the past several quarters, IBM’s systems and technology revenue has been in a steep decline and ended at -23% year-over-year last quarter.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in the month of July 2013, 3,600 jobs were created in data processing, hosting and related services, and that’s the single best month of job growth in this category since June 1998.

Big Data and the Information Governance Imperative

New CIGO Role Positioned to Meet Challenges

Blog-post by,

Think Big Data is here?  Just wait – it’s only beginning.

According to IDC, the digital universe is doubling in size every two years, and will reach 44 trillion gigabytes by 2020. Estimates and projections vary, but it has been stated that 90 percent of the data existing worldwide today was created in the last two years and that every two days more information is generated than was from the dawn of civilization until 2003. That’s a lot of information.

Much has been written about the benefits of converged infrastructure - reduced complexity, faster deployments, ease of management, greater capacity and how it's more geared for cloud, Big Data and mobile.

But how much does it cost and how can you figure out the ROI?

what is IOE

I: IBM; O: Oracle; E: EMC

Blog-post by,

   what is IOE? in China we call it IOE: I: IBM; O: Oracle; E: EMC. why do we call it? Because for Tranditional IT and most Enterprise Company, IOE is core for their business, customers really reply on IOE. But now Cloud, Big data, Open Source  technology become more popular and Chinese Government is more focused on country Security and aslo Company has lower and lower bugdet on IT investment, so in China Geting rid of IOE is becoing more imporant and more important, and more obvious and more obvious.

Social Media & CRM, a Relationship of Brand, Business, Technology, Innovation & Customer Satisfaction

Blog-post by,

One of the leading MNC tried doing something differently, & managed to enhance their sales by 400% in the first quarter itself. This initiative earned the company, 300 followers on LinkedIn, helping them reach out to these 300 followers, and people on their individual networks. They also got connected across 54000 to 1.3 million people. These results, of reaching out to customers, were not marginalized; rather they were accepted as a prominent and an inseparable activity. How did all this happen? What did they do different?

CIOs share on their key challenges

How well do you think they have captured their go forward challenges?

Blog-post by,

If you ask a CIO today about their challenges, several things would clearly make the list. CIOs that I know personally are feeling a bit of Future Shock. They say that things are changing a lot faster these days than they did in the past. One CIO said to me in exasperation, “things are changing every 18 months”.
