SORT BY Relevancy
IBM has been the bellwether par excellence for the modern American corporation. Under the founding Watson dynasty, which ruled the roost between 1914 and 1971, it reached the pinnacle of industrial success and then blazed a path into the emerging computer industry. Along the way it pioneered concepts and principles that became symbols of enlightened corporate stewardship. More recently, confronting globalization and the increased pace of technological change, it has moved away from their vision.
This afternoon we will examine the IBM legacy with Peter E. Greulich, a veteran IBM executive, who is the author of A View From Beneath The Dancing Elephant. A profile of his book can be found at:
Mr. Greulich is president of MBI Concepts Corporation and a contributor to the financial website Seeking Alpha.

The contaminated hot spot lies under an area the size of eight village blocks.
Situated over and near the source area, and blocking access to cleanup, are dozens of buildings.
To date, nearly 70,000 gallons of solvent %u2014 more than 40 tons %u2014 have been pumped from the ground.
ENDICOTT – After 35 years, IBM Corp. contractors have stanched the flow of industrial solvents into a commercial and residential district in the heart of the village, but they have yet to find a solution for the source of the problem at the company's former flagship manufacturing plant.
Officials recently reported that efforts to intercept and remove the subterranean flow of hazardous chemicals coming from the industrial complex — now owned by Huron Real Estate Associates — have been successful. Consequently, health risks to a nearby neighborhood have been eliminated.
Yet they have no remedy for a concentrated pool of solvents directly under the manufacturing site, where at least 1,500 people still work. Full story: http://www.pressconnects.com/story/news/local/2015/04/05/ibm-tce-issues/25302109/
Jonathan Ferrar, VP IBM's Smarter Workforce, will discuss the new initiative which is all about empowering HR, empowering the workforce and empowering your business.
He'll discuss the benefits of the Smarter Workforce - gaining the insight and ability to hire the right talent, engage your people and collaborate together.
Organizations are re-inventing themselves to deliver deeper and more valuable experiences across all aspects of the customer’s journey. No matter the size or industry, each supplier and partner plays a critical role in an organization’s ability to provide an exceptional customer experience.
In May, at the IBM Smarter Commerce Global Summit in Tampa, FL, IBM introduced new cloud-based and on premise software and services to help clients deepen engagement with partners and suppliers to help ensure goods and services are delivered precisely when and where they are needed. The new B2B integration software will provide better insight and control over today’s extended value chain as well as lower risk and enhance compliance.
Joining me today to tell us what this all means for not only IBM's clients but the venerable giant's internal structure is Terrence Curley, Director of Products for B2B & Commerce at IBM.

We all use electronic services increasingly often in our daily lives. To do so, we have no choice but to provide plenty of personal information for authorization, billing purposes, or as part of the terms and conditions of service providers.
Identity Mixer allows users to minimize the personal data they have to reveal in such transactions. For instance, if electronic identity (eID) cards were realized with Identity Mixer, then teenagers possessing such eID cards could log onto a teenage chat room just proving that they are indeed 12–15 years of age without revealing any other information stored on the card such as their name or address.
