IBM's "Info-on-Demand" Investment

Today, IBM announced a plan to invest $1 billion in software development over the next three years and continue an ongoing effort to recruit consultants. They want to make their information more readily available for office workers.

Over the next three years, IBM plans to expand the number of their existing consultants by 65 percent, approximately 9,750 people. Executives also tole the press that most of those consultants would be coming from outside the company.

Customers want "information on demand" and IBM is more than willing to comply with their customers' needs. Forrestor analyst Barry Murphy said, "All the big system integrators should be nervous. "If I was Accenture or EDS, I would be concerned because this puts IBM in a position to have the most experienced services force out there."
