    I was included in this layoff, took about a week to get a better offer from another company. Tommorow is my last day, happy day indeed.

      Good luck on your new job. Do you recommend buying Big Blue and holding on to its stock for long run or they're goners in the cloud /hybrid (post-enterprise) era ?

      I think they are goners personally. Watson Health was supposed to save them. They spent billions acquiring health analytic companies, and those are now failing. United Healthcare's Optum is their main rivel, beat them to market by months, and gets data for free, as they are the largest health insurer. IBM must compensate others for the same data.

    Why was IBM promoting that its cloud made more run rate last 4 quarters than AWS ? Honestly I feel bad for IBMers but looks like IBM is headed the Dell/HP way or might stagnate like ORCL in the cloud era.

    IBM is a cancer. Their entire analytics/Watson group is a sinking ship. Somehow they still have some talented Spark folks but I can’t imagine it’ll remain that way.

      Management is either infighting or complacent.

      It's a toxic business environment.

    Watson Health is dead because it doesn't work. That's why the Truven layoffs.
