The IBM way
The IBM sub-brands - Tivoli, WebSphere, Lotus, Rational - continue to delude CIOs into thinking they're buying a coherent suite. Those of us who've actually kicked the tyres know that they're all just disjoint grab-bags of randomly branded pieces, some in-house and some acquired - that may or may not work together.
What you actually get are lots of barely cooperating software components that require oodles of professional services to install and integrate, then years of global services to operate! Because no-one else can work out how.
Seriously, who continues to fall for this crap.
