How to Fix IBM

Early in his tenure as CEO, Sam Palmisano made changes that created IBM's problems today.  IBM customers are buying fewer products and services.  Revenue has dropped each quarter for the past ten.  Sam's changes alienated IBM customers, many of whom are ending what has been in many cases a multi-decade relationship.

Eight Ways Cloud Is Making Supply Chains Very Smart

In the world of supply chains, signing on a new partner or trading partner has typically marked the beginning of a marathon. Whether by Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), EDIFACT, cXML, ebXML, value added networks, portals, or the rest of the alphabet soup of connectivity approaches, a great deal of time and effort is required to get trading partners' systems aligned -- even if trading hubs are involved. Every company has a different system, and different processes for getting things done.
