    IBM Article indicates big push into Mobile

    Interesting article out today about IBM's big push into Mobile... not that this is going to be a surprise to anyone on this board, but just reinforces the good fit with where CKSW is going... get it while you can under 20 bucks...

    "The company is announcing a major initiative into mobile, involving software, services and partnerships with other large vendors. I.B.M. plans to deploy consultants to give companies mobile shopping strategies, write mobile apps, crunch mobile data, and manage a company's own mobile assets securely.

    Thousands of employees have been trained in mobile technologies, I.B.M. says, and corporate millions will be spent on research and acquisitions in coming years. I.B.M. also announced a deal with AT&T to offer software developers access to mobile applications from AT&T's cloud.

    "Mobile is the next big growth play that I.B.M. is going after," said Michael J. Riegel, the head of mobile strategy. He said his company has made 10 mobile-related acquisitions already, and will have a global research and development team of 160 people dedicated to mobile technology. In 2012 alone, he said, I.B.M. won 125 patents related to mobile."
