partnership
I notice that IBM has formed a number of partnerships in the past few years. Is this business approach standard for Big Blue or part of a change in strategy?

Re: partnership
I recently saw that IBM has had declining profits (but is still profitable) for some record number of months (22 or so?). I assume partnerships may be a strategic attempt to curtail that trend somehow by diversifying revenue streams.

Re: partnership
@mhhf1ve well it does make sense to try something different if the old standby is not proving profitable.

Re: partnership
It would seem that IBM is shifting a bit to reach forward with new business to stem that trend. The not so great finanials are probably lighting a fire at IBM to look to more activity in the cloud arena with hopes to improve profits and sales over the next years.
