IBM facing "rocky time", but poised for change, CEO says - NYT
(Reuters) - IBM Corp is facing a "rocky time," Chief Executive Virginia Rometty told the New York Times, but said she and the company now have a clear vision on how to pursue another generation of growth.
"We are transforming this company for the next decade," she said, sounding a theme she plans to use on Wednesday at the company's yearly meeting with investment analysts, the New York Times reported. (r.reuters.com/vuz29v)
IBM, the world's biggest technology services company, last month reported its lowest quarterly revenue in five years, as Big Blue struggles with falling demand for its hardware and faces challenges in growth markets like China.
The company has jettisoned less profitable business and made major commitments in new fields — like technology to help customers find insights in today's flood of digital data, and cloud-style computing in which processing and software is delivered remotely over the Internet, the NYT reported Rometty as saying.
