Buiten dat het vandaag ex-dividend dag is toch wat nieuws gevonden van IBM zelf:
IBM : Breaks New Ground with its Highest-Capacity Flash Storage System in a Small Form Factor; Aids Businesses on their Hybrid Cloud Journeys
02/09/2021 | 09:02am EST
ARMONK, N.Y., Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced new high-speed, entry-level flash storage systems, as well as hybrid cloud and container-centric updates, all designed to help make enterprise-class storage accessible to businesses of all sizes and needs.
The need for high capacity, cost-effective storage is on the rise as global data creation is expected to balloon to 143 zettabytes by 2024, according to IDC.[1] That need is amplified by accelerated digital transformations spurred by the pandemic. A recent study by IBM's Institute for Business Value, COVID-19 and the future of business, for example, reported that 59 percent of companies surveyed have accelerated digital transformation plans due to the pandemic.

"The data needs of business have become critical since the pandemic," said Deney Dentel, President and CEO, Nordisk Systems, a Converge Company, an IBM Premiere Business Partner. "Enterprise class data availability, massive scalability, and the flexibility to access and manage data across hybrid clouds are imperatives. IBM's refresh of the FlashSystem line and its continued integration of hybrid cloud and container capabilities are exactly what's needed to keep companies performing at a high level as workforce dynamics and economics evolve."

"As the world moves more rapidly to hybrid cloud, modernized data storage is at the foundation," said Denis Kennelly, General Manager, IBM Storage. "Systems that provide global data availability, data resilience, automation, and enterprise-class data services are more critical than ever. Today's announcement is designed to bring these capabilities to organizations of any size."

IBM FlashSystem 5200 – Storage Made Simple

The new FlashSystem 5200 is one of IBM's most powerful storage systems for its size and designed to provide enterprise-class storage capabilities to organizations of any size. And although it has greater performance and capacity than its predecessor, the FlashSystem 5100, the new 5200 has a base price that is on average 20% less expensive (based on configuration). Other key attributes include:

Hybrid Cloud & Containers: The IBM FlashSystem 5200, like the entire IBM flash storage portfolio, supports Red Hat OpenShift, Container Storage Interface (CSI) for Kubernetes, Ansible automation, and Kubernetes, as well as VMWare and bare metal environments.
Enterprise Capabilities: The system also comes with IBM Storage Insights, which can give users visibility across complex storage environments to help them make informed decisions, and IBM Spectrum Virtualize, which enables users to consolidate and manage storage as if it were one pool, designed to improve performance and lowering operating expenses. Also included are such data resiliency functions as IBM HyperSwap which supports automatic failover in case of a site incident.
Capacity: FlashSystem 5200 starts with 38TB of data capacity and can grow to deliver 1.7PB[2] in a compact 1U form factor for space-constrained environments, or the equivalent of close to 1 trillion pages of printed text.
Speed: Although FlashSystem 5200 is half the size of traditional storage systems, it offers 66% greater maximum I/Os than its predecessor and 40%[3] more data throughput at 21GB/s, and is designed to help clients save on both capital and operating expenses.

IBM announced two additional models to the FlashSystem series that are designed to deliver improved performance: the FlashSystem 5015 and 5035, both of which are 2U systems, designed for organizations with less demanding performance and growth requirements but with the same rich IBM Spectrum Virtualize and IBM Storage Insights functions.

Advancing Hybrid Cloud Even Further Across Storage

IBM today also announced plans to continue advancing hybrid cloud capabilities across its storage portfolio.

When made generally available in March, the company will add support for IBM Cloud Satellite to the FlashSystem portfolio, IBM SAN Volume Controller, IBM Elastic Storage System and IBM Spectrum Scale. IBM Cloud Satellite is being designed to enable companies to build, deploy and manage cloud services anywhere – in any public cloud, on premises and at the edge – with speed and simplicity. IBM Cloud Satellite will be delivered as-a-service from a single pane of glass and managed through the IBM public cloud and is currently in beta.

IBM also announced plans to update IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud, software that enables clients to replicate or migrate data from heterogeneous storage systems between on-premises environments and IBM Cloud or Amazon Web Services. IBM plans to extend the same capabilities to Microsoft Azure starting with a beta program in the third quarter of 2021.

International Business Machines : U.S. Army Selects IBM for the Third Time to Provide Full Portfolio of IT Management Services
02/10/2021 | 09:08am EST

WASHINGTON, D.C. - FEB. 10, 2021 - Today, IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced the renewal of a contract with the U.S. Army to continue providing a full portfolio of IT management services to the U.S. Army Materiel Command Logistics Data Analysis Center (LDAC). Under this LITeS III contract, IBM will continue to serve one of the largest logistics systems in the U.S. federal government and expand upon the software development and cognitive computing capabilities provided in previous LITeS I & LITeS II contracts, also awarded to IBM.

During the next five years, IBM will work to enhance the U.S. Army IT readiness and resilience by providing LDAC with a series of IT management services that include cloud migration support; analytics; software development and sustainment; database management and analysis; application integration and management; customer support; business case analysis; enterprise design, integration, and consolidation; cybersecurity; product end-user guides and project management.

'This third contract awarded to IBM in the LITeS series confirms IBM's positioning to serve the U.S. Army's critical IT programs,' said Steve LaFleche, IBM's General Manager, U.S. Public and Federal Market. 'We are proud to continue our collaboration with LDAC and to provide them with the high quality, efficiency and effective support they require to further their digital modernization journey.'

IBM's work with LDAC (formerly Logistics Support Activity, LOGSA) started in 2012 with the LITeS I contract that focused on modernizing LDAC's legacy data center into an on-premise hybrid cloud managed services delivery model; implementing strong cybersecurity controls and transitioning the organization to an Agile delivery organization. The second contract, LITeS II in 2017, transitioned LDAC to a platform as a service delivery model, allowing inter-agency data sharing and implementing initial analytics capabilities.

Under LITeS III, in addition to continuing to provide IT portfolio management and analytics services as part of this new contract, IBM will help LDAC focus on:

Continuing their strategic transformation to becoming the premier analytics organization of Army Materiel Command;
Maximizing the value of their migration to cloud environment by completing the implementation of DevSecOps in the cloud; and
Leveraging IBM's Garage based in Huntsville, AL to rapidly prototype and transition new capabilities to a full delivery model to help bring value to the Army more quickly, to include automation, software delivery, and analytics modeling.

IBM : Commits To Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions By 2030
02/16/2021 | 08:31am EST

ARMONK, N.Y., Feb. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that it will achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 to further its decades-long work to address the global climate crisis. The company will accomplish this goal by prioritizing actual reductions in its emissions, energy efficiency efforts and increased clean energy use across the more than 175 countries where it operates.
"I am proud that IBM is leading the way by taking actions to significantly reduce emissions," said Arvind Krishna, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, IBM. "The climate crisis is one of the most pressing issues of our time. IBM's net zero pledge is a bold step forward that strengthens our long-standing climate leadership and positions our company years ahead of the targets set out in the Paris Climate Agreement."

To achieve its net zero goal IBM will:

Reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 65% by 2025 against base year 2010. What's most important in the fight against climate change is to actually reduce emissions. The company's net zero goal is also accompanied by a specific, numerical target for residual emissions that are likely to remain after IBM has first done all it can across its operations to reduce.
Procure 75% of the electricity it consumes worldwide from renewable sources by 2025, and 90% by 2030.
Use feasible technologies, such as carbon capture (in or by 2030) to remove emissions in an amount which equals or exceeds the level of IBM's residual emissions.

IBM's net zero pledge also establishes near-term targets to drive accountability and progress now. It is transparent in terms of how the company calculates and reports renewable energy use. For example, IBM's target is based on the energy the company can actually consume, not on the purchase of unrelated, unbundled renewable energy certificates.

As part of IBM's commitment to sustainability and its focus on the application of science and technology to solve major societal challenges, IBM Research has launched a Future of Climate initiative designed to accelerate the discovery of solutions to address the impacts of a changing climate.

Utilizing a combination of artificial intelligence, hybrid cloud and quantum computing, IBM researchers are working with clients and partners to apply science to complex climate-related problems, such as the growing global carbon footprint of cloud workloads and data centers, methods to accurately model and assess the risk of changing environments and climate patterns, and the development of new polymers, membranes and materials that can capture and absorb carbon at the origin of emission.

IBM's advocacy for environmental sustainability dates back decades, with its first corporate environmental policy statement issued in 1971. Since 1990, IBM has disclosed its performance in managing waste, conserving energy, using renewable electricity, reducing carbon dioxide emissions and developing innovative solutions in an annual Corporate Environmental Report. In 2007, IBM publicly stated its position on climate change, saying that "climate change is a serious concern that warrants meaningful action on a global basis to stabilize the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases." The company supported the Paris Agreement in 2015, and in 2017 publicly reiterated its support for the U.S. to remain a party to it. In 2019, IBM became a Founding Member of the Climate Leadership Council, and fully supports its bipartisan plan for a carbon tax with 100% of the net proceeds paid to citizens as a carbon dividend.

Conclusion

I will reiterate my opinion that IBM is a significant value trap stock in the best-case scenario. The company's revenues have been steadily declining, while it uses high leverage for producing its low returns, and it is at the moment wholly outdone by its competition. Management has placed its attention during the previous years on cost-cutting techniques and away from technological innovation, which has seriously jeopardized the company's future growth and long-term survival in the face of intensely competitive market forces.

Allemaal waar inclusief dividenden al had ik liever geen dividend gezien en ipv een paar goede overnames met dat geld.Maar is voorlopig wel veel beter dan een spaarboekje qua rendement en mocht die omzetdaling eindelijk eens stoppen dan is het helemaal goed.

International Business Machines : For Airlines, the Pandemic Crystalizes the True Value of Data
02/18/2021 | 07:25am EST


By Greg Land, Global Industry Leader - Aviation, Hospitality & Travel Related Services

For many of us, daydreaming about vacation has become a welcome bit of escapism during life under lockdown. While travelers are eager to get back to their favorite beach, mountainside or city escape, many remain concerned about entering an airport, let alone spending several hours strapped to a seat inside a pressurized cabin.

How does social distancing work aboard an aircraft cruising at 30,000 feet? How do travelers get from point A to B without touching more surfaces than absolutely necessary? Of course, these new concerns are compounded by the same old perennial gripes that have frustrated flyers for years: finicky reservation systems, inefficient check-in processes - not to mention the dreaded delays and cancellations.

In a recent IBM holiday survey, about 15% of respondents who typically travel during the holidays said they plan to travel more this season than they did in 2019. So for some travelers, COVID has given them more options to travel due to flexible work and education schedules this year. But in spite of that silver lining, it's clear that airlines have their work cut out for them when it comes to regaining consumer trust. But where to begin? For many carriers, the answer is simple: data. Fortunately, that's an asset many aviation leaders already have in abundance.

Before Covid-19 brought the global economy to a screeching halt, airlines like Delta and United had already begun gathering insights from passenger data to create a more holistic view of their business and to optimize the end-to-end customer journey. But due to the legacy IT infrastructure underpinning much of the aviation industry, carriers were limited in their ability to fully leverage this data. Now, with demand down by as much as 66 percent according to the International Air Transport Association, airlines have a unique opportunity to modernize - breaking down longstanding IT siloes to deliver a safer, more personalized travel experience, while also shoring up the bottom line.

To wit, Delta Air Lines recently announced a multi-year agreement with IBM to boost its global competitiveness and deliver a premium and personalized customer experience through a combination of hybrid cloud, Red Hat OpenShift, Cloud Paks and Services expertise. Delta will modernize its on-the-ground and digital customer experience, transform its talent base and enable greater agility.

Transforming in this way will allow Delta to unify datasets across its sprawling IT footprint. Currently, much of its data is segmented, making it difficult, for example, for the commercial side of the business to see data from the maintenance side. But in reality, it's all interconnected. A maintenance issue can ground a plane, that can cancel a flight, that can ruin customer experience at the gate.

The airlines that begin leveraging their data first will enjoy first-mover advantage as the global economy opens back up for business.Through technologies like AI, hybrid cloud and containerization, innovative airlines will take data modeling to the next level, surfacing distinct new trends and consumer behaviors that can rapidly be translated into actionable tactics to rebuild trust with travelers and ensuring safety, comfort and operational efficiency.

Take for example customer service interactions. To reduce operational costs while accommodating for both volatility of demand and remote work, airlines are able to utilize IBM's AI and cloud-based Watson Assistant for engaging customers virtually. Leveraging cloud and AI enables organizations to scale capabilities in real-time, mitigating costs while ensuring available capacity to handle surges in volume. It also eliminates the needs for customers to wait on hold for a service agent to become available, improving the user experience.

In the era of COVID, new digital capabilities also enable airlines to reduce the number of physical interactions involved in traveling. Rather than having passengers line up around a physical gate or speaking to an agent about a seat upgrade, seat changes or standby requests can all be digitally enabled. A simple smartphone notification can let passengers known when it's time to board. This not only promotes safety, but also allows passengers to do what they want prior to boarding without standing in a line.

As the travel and tourism sector gradually gets back to business, it's clear that some organizations are already better positioned than others to rebuild consumer trust and thrive in the new normal. In the months and years to come, the airlines that make the best use of data resources will emerge with a strong advantage over less savvy competitors.

'IBM overweegt verkoop Watson Health'
Om de focus op de cloudactiviteiten te vergroten - en de achterstand op marktleiders Amazon en Microsoft te verkleinen - overweegt IBM zijn supercomputer Watson Health van de hand te doen. Dat weet The Wall Street Journal van een anonieme bron.
Op tafel liggen een verkoop aan een private-equityspeler en een fusie met een blancochequebedrijf, de jongste beurshype. Watson Health boekt een omzet van 1 miljard dollar, maar is verlieslatend.
De AI-computer is een van IBM's paradeprojecten van de jongste jaren. Health is lang niet het enige domein waar IBM de supercomputer inzet, het actieterrein gaat van security over advertenties tot supply chain en hr. Maar op Watson Health zette IBM wel het sterkst in met tal van overnames, die samen goed waren voor minstens 4 miljard dollar. De gok levert echter niet het gewenste resultaat op, mede omdat artsen aarzelen om gebruik te maken van artificiële intelligentie.
CEO Arvind Krishna kondigde eind vorig jaar al een andere ingreep aan om de focus op de cloud te vergroten: de beursgang van de klassieke infrastructuuractiviteiten zoals het beheer van datacenters en de ondersteuning van traditionele IT-apparatuur. De divisie, goed voor een vierde van omzet en personeel van de groep, staat onder druk omdat almaar meer klanten overstappen naar de cloud en/of upgrades van infrastructuur uitstellen door de pandemie. De beursgang is gepland voor eind dit jaar.
