The head of IBM says the company is poised for growth, putting an end to years of stagnant stock prices and flagging competitiveness.
CEO Virginia M. Rometty, 56, said during an interview with the New York Times that things had long been “rocky” for IBM, but that a clear vision was now at hand for pursuing fresh avenues.
“We are transforming this company for the next decade,” she said. “That is not a one-year job, not when you’re a hundred-billion-dollar company.”
Having jettisoned less profitable aspects of the business, the firm of more than 400,000 employees is turning to new fields — cloud computing, says Rometty, is one example that can become an exciting venture for IBM.
“I feel very good about the direction and how we’ve crystallized it,” she added. “We are making progress, and we just need to keep moving with speed.”
