IBM, Software, and SOA

Business Week recently pointed out, in an article linked from Sandy Carter’s SOA blog, that IBM now makes more profit from software than services, which had been our mainstay for a number of years now. I’m not 100% clear on the details (it’s not often I get to look at the big book o’ accounts), but it’s good to know that we in IBM Software Group are doing good for the company’s bottom line.

This is significant as IBM gets ready for our big SOA announcement on 3rd October. Whether you believe the hype or are cynical about SOA being the next big thing, you can find out more details on the IBM website here and register for the webcast.
