IBM management's time ended 30 years ago.
Yes, that is the start of the Red Hat meltdown... more will follow as IBM always destroys the companies it acquires. Hard to believe Jim Whitehurst will stick around unless he gets the CEO job at IBM... the question is when is Ginni getting the boot... it is overdue, but watch the 3Q results... I heard they are not good!
Talent always jumps ship after a purchase. It the nature of wild ducks. If you see 2-3 more top tier talent kingpins move than you know blue washing is having it’s effect. Jim Whitehurst is standing in the wings waiting to either take over, or jump. Let those options vest and we’ll see ehhh. IBM management. Your time in the sun has ended, you are either all in on this “new”strategy, or you need to retire
