The 10 Biggest IBM Stories Of 2008
The IBM of 2008 looks very different from the IBM of previous years. One of the biggest shakeups of the year came in the company's hardware business with the retirement of 39-year IBM veteran William Zeitler. IBM chose Robert Moffat Jr. (pictured) as the new head of the Systems & Technology Group. The 30-year IBM veteran wasted no time in sharpening IBM's partner focus with a sweeping overhaul aimed at simplifying partner compensation and account engagement. Not only that, Moffat took the $100 million in savings from restructuring the group and promised to put it to work in new global go-to-market initiatives in 2009.
