IBM Making Bolder Moves in the Cloud

It is clear IBM is investing in the Cloud with over 11,000 people attending Pulse this year.  The conference has been a great venue for clients and business partners sharing their stories and plans for the future in the Cloud.  The week kicked off with another announcement of another smart acquisition of Cloudent.   IBM Buys Cloudant To Boost SoftLayer Partner Appeal.   Listening to Lance Crosby, CEO of Softlayer, at this morning’s General Session was true testament to this year’s conference theme – Inspiring Bold Moves.  If you missed it – you can watch Lance’s story and more of Day 3 here.
