Thrice, in a trice, IBM cloud cuts prices

IBM has cut the price of cloud services three times in a week. It's far from unusual for clouds to cut prices: AWS and Azure often trade price cuts and say they're duty bound to pass them on as their economies of scale improve. IBM, however, enjoys a lowly position on Gartner's most recent Magic Quadrant for infrastructure as …

IBM: Yes, it's true. We leaned on researchers to censor exploit info

IBM successfully pressured security researchers into yanking offline part of a published vulnerability advisory – even after patches had been distributed to customers. Last Friday, Italian infosec bod Maurizio Agazzini published details of an exploitable bug in the latest four builds of IBM's WebSphere middleware. He posted …

David Jones follows Kmart into 'we've been attacked' hell

Australian high-falutin retailer David Jones has become the second in two days to admit to a data breach of its retail systems. DJ's statement is remarkably similar in its substance to Kmart's: like the down-market chain, DJs says “The information obtained was restricted to customer name, email address, order details and …

Big Blue bleeds more red in Q4, promises better days to come

The fourth quarter of IBM's fiscal 2014 was a disappointing cap on a year that saw Big Blue's revenues and income both decline significantly since 2013. Total revenues for the quarter were $24.1bn, which was 12 per cent lower than the same period a year ago and missed analysts' expectations. Revenues for the full year didn't …

IBM trudges onward despite hardware weight around its neck

IBM reported fourth-quarter earnings that were a mixed bag on Tuesday, with hardware remaining the chief thorn in Big Blue's side – as has been the case throughout its fiscal 2013. Total revenues shrank for both the quarter and the year, with Q4 sales down 5.5 per cent to $27.7bn and annual sales down 4.6 per cent to $99.8bn. …

IBM chases Itanium shops with 'Breakfree' deals

When you live in a glass house – like IBM does, both metaphorically and literally – you don't throw stones. So when Oracle suddenly pulled the plug on future software development for the Itanium processor back in March, Big Blue didn't say squat about the situation. But the company's top brass have been taking pot-shots at the …

Can Sun's GlassFish turn on master Oracle?

In Hand of Orlac, a plastic surgeon replaces the crushed hands of a pianist with those of an executed murder. What at first is a godsend for the ruined musician may in truth be an agent of its former owner's insidious will, compelling its inheritor to murder his own father. We wonder if that works for corporations. Will the …

IBM fires WebSphere CloudBurst at McKinsey heretics

When consultant McKinsey & Co recently warned that cloud computing would cost you money rather help you than save it, IBM took the unusual step of responding. IBM wasn't the company singled out in the report - it was Amazon's fluffy Web Services. But IBM is working with Amazon to make its software available through the Elastic …

Microsoft challenges IBM to Websphere duel

Microsoft is trying to get under IBM's skin with some benchmarks run in its Redmond labs using Big Blue's own Java-based test, Trade, and a variant of it ported to C#, which Microsoft calls .NET StockTrader. But as Microsoft throws down the benchmarking gauntlet, IBM is ignoring the calls for a WebSphere duel at the Middleware …

Software team codes IBM higher in Q2

Every quarter IBM orders investors to pay attention to a particular product group as the driver of its success. For this year's second quarter, IBM has promoted the software division as its savior. That's software - not services. Got it? IBM sold a lot of stuff during Q2. In fact, it sold $23.8bn worth of goods and services, …
