    Well that's odd.

    I worked for a major bank that went from BES to Good to Airwatch, which was supplied and supported by IBM.

    Maybe it was all a dream.......
    Your right IBM is working with Airwatch, here's there Solutions Offering.

    Inside IBM's patent-creation machine - Business Insider

    Here's a second link detailing some ways IBM pumps out the patents. Do you have a link to provide support for your assertion?
    Actually, that link shows exactly what I was talking about. They have an internal culture of innovation and encourage and incentivize their employees to document and patent their inventions rather than simply deliver on their assignments like most companies do.

    What, exactly, do you find problematic about a company filing for patents for its inventions?

    Airwatch is from EMC. Maas360 is from IBM. IBM Security sells Maas360. Services projects can manage anything the Clients have or want.

    So services is not limited to IBM only solutions but IBM Security won't sell anything else than IBM.

    Since this whole sub-thread is off-topic, I'm going to stop posting. My only point was that IBM is far from being a "boring" tech company.

    Corporate IP strategy is a complex topic, and there is room for many opinions.

    I know, services is not obliged to push ibm software and like that link, ibm also has partnerships with Oracle while that company is also a big competitor. The nice world of a hw/sw/svcs company

    IBM - most boring tech company in the world lol
    IBM - a tech company that stuffed up the Australian Census 2016 ... #CensusFail

    Looks like someone is going to pay. Hopelessly underspecced. 1 million forms per hour? Yeah, as if it's gonna be smoothly levelled out over course of the day, instead of all the Joe Doe's hitting the website on Census Night right after dinner.... duh!! ;-P

    That would be like 10m+ hits per hour, not one. No idea who came up with this estimate, that's pretty hopeless!

    IBM. Meh.
    They spun off their keyboard division to an "employee owned" operation. That's gone.
    They got in the printer business (employye owned) as Lexmark. Have you bought one?
    They spun off the laptops--or is that sold off? Ah, yes, Lenovo as the quality slowly goes down.

    In another life, they would tell you about some high ticket bids coming up, get you to pay for bid bonds and bid it, then come in and undercut you since cost was their cost.
    IBM? Who needs them?

    Well, $12B a year in Cloud revenue alone, so obviously, someone needs them. LOL

    I'm sure the government also uses paper, cleaning products, etc and so does Fortune 1000 and the hospitals.

    Doesn't stop them being boring.

    Like I said, IBM is the most boring tech company.

    So, who do you find to be an "exciting" tech company?

    And nothing exciting or cool about IBM's Watson diagnosing a rare cancer that stumped doctors:

    I've seen this before, a lot of IT people aggressively love IBM. Sorry to have offended you. I still yawn uncontrollably whenever the word IBM is mentioned. YAWN

    Yes, you've made that clear. That's why I asked you which tech companies, if any, you find interesting.

    That's fine, so long as you recognize that a lot of new technology is either funded by or developed by those "boring" corporations. ;-)
