Intel has already integrated onto its CPUs math coprocessors, memory controllers, graphics, I/O controllers, and now in-package memory with Knights Landing. Next will be high-speed switches, optical fabrics, next-generation storage, and 3D stacked memory CPUs. (Source: Intel)

Hard to compare to ARM's customization efforts, since there are few details available from Intel on just how its customizaiton program will work, but the possibilities include adding additional features like specialized accelerators, tweaking existing features like higher clock rates more bandwidth, customizing using its own IP blocks or adding external IP from the customer.

Thinking about Intel's customer, I guess IBM also would be a prominent name...isn't it? Since IBM claims to be the largest Cloud service provider and coming up with Big Data Analysis in a big way, I don't see a reason why Intel would not think about IBM as one of their key customers. What do you think?

Absolutely. IBM, of course, has both x86 servers and its own POWER-8 based servers which it "customizes" itself.
