Expect a move from Inhi in three two one ...

Inhi Cho Su introduced herself as the new General Manager of IBM Collaboration on the last day of IBM Connect, which was Feb 3. You are generally given a hundred days to make your mark. And 100 days from Feb 3 happens to be next Friday. Something is about to happen. If not by next Friday, then shortly thereafter.

Are you saying no mark has been made and she's done, or it's about the time that they announce something big?

I am not implying anything. Just pointing out that the 100 days run out next week.

On a personal note, I believe that previous senior management was disconnected from reality. And it's quite possible that the new senior management had no idea what they were up against.

Could well be...

Agree with your assessment that previous senior management was disconnected from reality. It's the only explanation I can think of for their shooting of the cash cow.

My impression of IBM over the past years has been of a very inward-looking company, and one in particular which does not listen to customers (or business partners), but invariably assumes that solutions that they come up to solve their own problems are applicable, and desirable, to the world outside.
