And just how do you know that? I believe IBM is wounded, severely and may not actually die but it will never be the powerhouse it once was. Sam and Ginny have seen to that and the thousands of qualified, talented, trained professionals who have been FIRED are proof of that. You can cut fat but not bone.
Eh, not good really. But not a surprise for anyone who studies this #$%$. I worked at their NJ locations for a few months years ago and still hate them. Some individuals were great, but the whole was a career cancer.
Spammers and political posts here, as bad as the GE board which is totally ransacked for anything BUT a business or financial discussion. Yahoo does nothing.
Try the GE board to see one really gone to hell. Yahoo does nothing to moderate what used to be an insightful forum for financial and business discussions.
IBM will be ugly when TOPGUNINVE or whatever turns against them, he sees nothing but a bright and gun-ho future for BIG BLUE, totally irrational. Garce seems to be sane to me, and opinions can change. I would love to IBM have a bright future but given Ginny;s tenure and her protocol of firing people that actually KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING and hiring LOW COST INDIANS who answer phones, I do not see growth at all. IBM may not die per se, but it will never be a powerhouse again.
Anybody with those level of degrees is NOT reading this, or other, boards.
RUMOR RUNNING - There is no talk of BK from anybody and your handle is less than reliable, you probably have less insight than our famous $12 by FRIDAY guru. Stop pushing spam on this board.
In a nutshell, concise and to the point. You did leave out sending a ton of jobs to India and sending customer satisfaction into the toilet as a result.
Probably just as much of a winner as ACS was. HAHAHAHA. Please note the CSC is splitting itself into two parts, maybe the same for Xerox if the strategy fits. ACS is nothing compared to CSC and that is saying not much about either firm. Both stink.
Glad to see you hear Garce, how long before this message board goes to hell with spam and political posts? Microsoft and GE are both toast.
They will never can her. Her skin color for one, her sex for two and she has a tight relationshuip with THE ONE in Washington DC so she is well connected for three. Nope, never going to fire her.
True, I converted over 500 Chromebooks for school districts, they love them in the classroom to access lesson plans where ONLY INTERNET and nothing else is needed. They have a specific niche need, very narrow yes but it works.
IBM can now conduct an audit of expense reports to find, eh, discrepancies and thus RA employees without paying any severance at all. WHAT A WONDERFUL IDEA? Yes, there will always be a few who glom onto the goodies too much, but IBM is interested in cutting those wasteful expense items called carbon units. People, at all costs. Hey, a new way to do it. Great going Ginny.
Agree, TOPGUN is an IBM Shill who wants NOTHING but personal gain on stock, posts the most idiotic comments about BIG BLUE doing this great thing or that. Makes zero sense. He loves BIG BLUE but now wants APPLE to buy it out. #$%$??? He loves Watson but now says that IBM is in the APP business. What a come down!!! Just making APPS. Apple can do that on it's own very well, they do not need IBM to do that. And a buyout for WATSON? OK, one monsterous computer system, big yawn.
I was fired by CSC ages ago to make room for low cost Indian workers along with 140 others, but never have I seen someone so ANGRY as YOU ARE. What did they DO to YOU??? Do you own this board now?
Not surprised at all. CSC is therefore one of the worst IT firms to sign on for, clients should know this. A bad staff does bad work, and India does worse. Having an unmotivated workforce leads to disasters, such as NHS and CSC is headed down hill. Split to two firms will not help, delay a bit.
