IBM 2Q08 Quarterly Earnings Report

by Volker Weber

Revenues from the Software segment were $5.6 billion, an increase of 17 percent (9 percent, adjusting for currency) compared with the second quarter of 2007. Revenues from IBM's total middleware products, which primarily include WebSphere, Information Management, Tivoli, Lotus and Rational products, were $4.3 billion, up 17 percent versus the second quarter of 2007. Operating systems revenues of $592 million increased 4 percent compared with the prior-year quarter.

For the WebSphere family of software products, which facilitate customers' ability to manage a wide variety of business processes using open standards to interconnect applications, data and operating systems, revenues increased 9 percent. Revenues for Information Management software, which enables clients to leverage information on demand, increased 30 percent. Revenues from Tivoli software, infrastructure software that enables clients to centrally manage networks including security and storage capability, increased 9 percent, and revenues for Lotus software, which allows collaborating and messaging by clients in real-time communication and knowledge management, increased 21 percent year over year. Revenues from Rational software, integrated tools to improve the processes of software development, increased 37 percent compared with the year-ago quarter.

It's all in US-Dollars of course and needs to be properly adjusted to reflect real numbers in your territory.
