Rometty's International Business Services (RIBS) Group
Since Machines seem no longer part of the Management and Board of Directors' focus at IBM, and even software is giving way more and more to call center services, perhaps the corporation should be renamed Rometty International Business Services. I think RIBS has a good ring to it as a stock symbol, all ribbing aside. As long as rank-and-file shareholders want to preserve only short term value and next quarter gains, hand management their bonuses on a silver platter, and fail to have the vision of the long term sustenance of IBM as a global business machines leader, this is the way things are a-tracking. Watson... so who was he?
