Thread regarding IBM layoffs

No cure for self inflicted Stupidity

Top Cloud companies are experiencing REAL and SIGNIFICANT growth in their revenues and are prospering during the pandemic.

IBM is hanging on for dear life. 2Q will be prophetic of the future. Everyone needs to be rowing together if we are going to salvage anything from 1H and have even a infinitesimal chance for 2H.

Add to that there is a supposed spinoff of Infrastructure Services in a month and a half.

So what better time to change your Sales Management systems and CRM tools!!!

Another great leadership move by the Executive team. Bravo!!

Red hat will be the next softlayer. It’s almost time for all employees to start their exit.

The top cloud companies service both business and consumers.
IBM thinks it can compete with the big players with just a B2B model.
How has that been working out for them? Not too good

@juh+1aUjTJiV Yup. Pretty sure it's the same guy who blathers on and on about Bain, the Fortune 500 Strategy, "Scale Out Power", DASD, etc.

@ykl is exactly right. Execs never have to truly master anything because it will change soon anyway. What a perfect way to keep useless people.

Ybs This is exactly why IBM bought Redhat. They bought a new strategy, and a new image. They are now in the process of executing that. Expect big changes to the legacy infrastructure over the course of 2021. Yes the legacy makes money, but it doesn’t innovate, and IBM needs innovation to move into the future

I think IBM is seen as "uncool" when compared to other companies - not just cloud companies. It has this "old generation" image. It somehow need to shake off this image and make itself cool and relevant again. Hire some out-of-the-box forward thinkers, inject some enthusiasm into the brand. Look at how "cool" Amazon, Pure, Veeam, Salesforce etc project themselves. Driven by a younger generation. I even think Dell is on the cusp of being un-cool, despite its relative success. Oracle is struggling from similar image issues.
All IMHO

Changing things consistently is how the Execs stay in power while they enrich themselves at the expense of the little people… again they have absolutely no intention to deliver any results because it is too hard to actually do the work.

For the little people… it is time to raise up and fight the tyranny…
