This is a low risk method to find the next "Cisco" or "Dell". By offering support now, IBM can expect long term customer relationships with those few companies that become superstars in their markets, or decide to acquire ones that are within the trajectory of IBM's overall growth strategy.

It seems to me that this is a very unusual approach, that is, for a big company such as IBM to be establishing relationships with small companies with the purpose of becoming partners. I see it as IBM trying to become the head of a big octopus and the small start-ups the end at its tentacles. Seems that IBM wants to become a big provider of software solutions. And just after reading about the new CEO and that their aim is to make 50% of their profit out from software sales confirms this.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
