Re: Clarity most welcome
I would say that IBM is playing catch-up in terms of getting its act together -- it appears to have the right capabilities to challenge and to present a cogent proposition to network operators/CSPs, but having the right tools and building a meaningful proposition are two separate things.

The opportunity is there for IBM -- let's see if it seizes it.

Step 1 -- present its SDN/NFV proposition to the market in a clear and relevant way.

Let's see what happens...

Re: Clarity most welcome
That is a fair question. Being an outsider, it is hard to know CEO Ginni Rometty's thinking but this much we know: She is a lifer and her best act thus far is to repudiate her predecessor's stated goal - out of inevitability! She got a pass though since she was not the author of the financial engineering plan. But now she owns everything going forward. 

More importantly, maybe this is a necessity so she'd better stick to it. As you and I have agreed, networking is integral so she doesn't have a choice. I mean, you can swap a coupe for a SUV but you need engine and wheels and steering if you want to drive :)! The question is more how you want to implement it. Purchase outright, lease or rental, or even car sharing. That is why, according to Ray's report, IBM has deals with other vendors. But IBM will still need to invest, even if on the cloud and/or datacenter sides of things. But if I were IBM, I would make sure I am the one being indispensible, not the other guys

Re: Clarity most welcome
I agree that IT vendors need to have strong networking strategies. Networking is fundamental to computing the way servers were in previous decades. 

However, I question whether IBM has the commitment to stay in it.

Re: Clarity most welcome
Mitch, I don't think IBM, or any large integrator for that matter, can stay out of networking. At least it will try not to hitch its fate on someone else. Vonage was a prime example of not having its own real estate. That said, it is not like the old days when it has a vertical stack of MVS-SNA-CICS-DB2, so it will have to partner and acquire to fill in the gap. Upon reading this news, I continue to think it is trying to replicate its Websphere successes in the cloud-bigdata-networking era

Re: Clarity most welcome
A bit confused here. Is IBM leading the charge in NFV/SDN or bringing up the rear here? To be clear, IBM has a lot of muscles and will not doubt gain a piece of the pie. Considering the cloud computing, big data and networking are more and more integrated, IBM will have able to fill in the gap in the hope of repeating its Websphere sucesses but certainly the NFV/SDN specialists and other integrators like Cisco and one of the HP kids (and even Oracle) will see to see that their turfs are protected. From the investment perspective, maybe it is a good time to check out the specialists

Good to see IBM joining the wider industry effort on NFV-SDN
It is good to see that IBM has now joined the wider industry to make NFV and SDN a reality. The point of the ETSI NFV ISG work is to encourage growth of an open ecosystem by converging industry requirements and working to encourage interoperability (i.e. to make it "operationally viable" to use IBM's phraseology). The vast majority of NFV ISG participants (over 270 companies including 37 service providers) who have invested time and effort in this endeavor - including creating 38 multi-company PoCs, would not consider it to be an "academic" exercise. I hope this announcement heralds more active engagement by IBM to collaborate with the wider industry to make that open ecosystem a reality.

Ariella, exactly - good point.  If they stay focused, this should fit in nicely and be an extension of their platform.  They definitely can be a leader.
