Adapt or die. IBM is no longer the big, lumbering, proprietary beast of old.
By Steve Pitcher
I was asked to write a piece on the future of Linux and IBM. After thinking about the subject matter, I came to the conclusion that it’s really open technology, not just Linux, that needed some discussion. I say this because it seems that open systems play a large part in how IBM is structuring a lot of their business. It didn’t get as much airtime as CAMSS (Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, Social, Security). It’s vague to the layman. It’s scary to the CFO. Open. It sounds unprotected. In reality, open technology may be the best protection a business could have.
