How Can IBM Accelerate Its Business of Strategic Imperatives?
This IDC Market Note highlights the key messages on IBM's cloud, cognitive, and security discussed at the IBM's 2018 Analyst Insight event, held in Melbourne, Australia, on August 20, 2018. The regional team, led by the new IBM Asia/Pacific CEO, Harriet Green, presented at the event together with the senior leadership team and scientist from IBM Research. It is clear IBM continued the growth momentum of its strategic imperatives, including cloud, cognitive, security, and blockchain in the region, as well as its commitment to develop or further expand thought leadership in the emerging areas, such quantum computing or blockchain. Nonetheless, in terms of the speed of the transformation and growth, IDC believes the market and customers expect a much faster pace compared with the current result. Moreover, it is not just how much fast it can shift into its strategic imperatives that is important, but the service experience when helping customers transition their own enterprise estate into cloud, analytics, and other innovation platforms.
