3 Big data security analytics techniques

IBM has appointed a trio of executives to head its massive Global Services business, following the departure of 30-year veteran and former head of IGS John Joyce.

A three-executive team of Ginni Rometty, Mike Daniels and Bob Moffatt will report directly to IBM chief executive Sam Palmisano, the company said on Tuesday.

Rometty - previously managing partner of IBM's business consulting services - becomes senior vice president of enterprise business services, Daniels - who led IBM's sales in the Americas - becomes senior vice president for IT services, and Moffatt - formerly senior vice president of supply chain operations - becomes senior vice president of integrated operations.

The executives are no strangers to the ways of Global Services. Rometty, once named one of Time Magazines' Global 2002 "influentials", previously led IBM Global Services in the Americas'- managing a team of 75,000 consultants. Daniels, meanwhile, has previously served as head of IBM Global Services.

Joyce leaves IBM to head-up venture capitalist Silver Lake Partners, after IBM announced quarterly results inline with Wall St targets. IBM brought in $22.3bn for the second quarter, with Global Services accounted for $12bn of that number. Joyce joins a VC whose investments include Ameritrade, Business Objects, Gartner, Network General and Seagate.

Separately, the head of IBM's database business Janet Perna is also leaving. Perna is retiring as general manager of IBM's Information Management Solutions after 31 years with the company. Perna is to be replaced by IBM Lotus general manager Ambuj Goyal.®
