Re: In a branch? Out on a limb!
Well, about the only thing that could possibly improve, would be if Watson replaces the Indian call centre workers.
Otherwise With cost blowouts, they'll end up paying $2b and still have nothing to show for it.

such hypocrites, they sell their labour service cheap to foreign countries undercutting local workers who lose their jobs, under the guise of free trade and globalisation, but if you try and import anything INTO India, they slap an import tax on it.
Time to whack a tax on outsourced labour from India, I think a 1000% tax on all services procured from India is a good start, and will help the government balance their budget, and promote growth of jobs in our own country.
“increase client awareness of the powerful talent that GBS and GTS bring to our engagements.”
I'm, pretty sure IBM clients know exactly what IBM isn't bringing to the table, this won't change a thing.
“puts a name to what we as IBMers have always known: that GBS and GTS practitioners are"
I'm pretty sure IBM staff know they are just lowly unrecognised "servants" - "IBM Services" is a good name.
All it tells us is the PWC buyout has finally been totally subsumed by IBM, and they have got rid of so many former PWC staff, they no longer need to pander to them with a different reporting line.
This would also explain why they are using Bain consultants for further RA's, as there is no one left from PWC.
yeah, he's right, he will make a windfall in the settlement, he was fired by a feminist HR manager who had been specifically put into google to promote females and gender equality and diversity, and been put too far up in the tree, who took her role far too seriously and started doing exactly the opposite to what she was hired for, in some Political Correctness "brain fart"
What has happened to the internet? The original design meant any link that was down was automatically bypassed and another route found. This is "supposed" to be the benefit of BGP.
We have seen similar things happen a number of times over the years. Is it poor design, or poor implementation, or is it just organisations deciding to override the automatic healing functionality for commercial benefit?
have to agree, IBM will soon be purchased by Apple or google and disappear into the history books as yet another enterprise that thought selling "fluff" (i.e. anything that costs nothing to produce) and offshoring anything physical to the cheapest, dumbest, illiterate monkey they can find in India, was the "way of the future"
I'd be betting on Oracle/Storagetek for a future in tapes.
