How IBM Changed Course

from the adapting-to-the-environment dept

While it’s clear that IBM is facing a lot of challenges in the future, they have done quite a good job rebuilding their reputation and offering strong products in a number of areas. Business 2.0 takes a look at how the notoriously “closed system” focus of IBM was convinced to embrace open standards and open source software that has helped to completely turn around much of their business. It’s a good example of a company recognizing an important trend in the marketplace and adapting to it – rather than sitting around complaining (or worse, telling the government to fix things for them).
