As many as 100,000 IBM staff axed in recent years as Big Blue battles to reinvent itself from IT's 'old fuddy duddy'

@AC, But they now have 50,000 employees with half a billion dollars worth of expertise in selling you,... er,... stuff you'd probably rather get elsewhere.

Now IBM have bowed out of the laptop, PC and server market, and only do cloud, mainframe, and that Watson thingy, I can't see us ever spending money with them. We aren't a small organisation, 6000+ seats, but for cloud we have Azure/O365 and S3, we have Hyperconverged servers, and no need for AI.

Being ex-IBM I'd always hoped I'd get to wear the boot on the other foot and grill a salesguy,.... but it won't happen.
