IBM, Lenovo Execs Answer x86 Server Sale Questions


From IBM's Point Of View, How Will This Impact Lenovo Channel Partners?

This is a great opportunity for the channel to expand their capabilities and add value. Partners will be able to leverage and extend capabilities with IBM's x86 server business and also leverage IBM's portfolio of server, mainframe and storage products. We believe the combination of these three things will strengthen the channel and the power it has in the marketplace, giving Lenovo partners the ability to compete much more broadly and deeper in the marketplace than today and therefore add more value to the clients that they support.
