IBM Transforms for the Future

(a) Never protect the past; (b) never define yourself as a product (and never define yourself by your competition, either); and (c) reinvent relentlessly are IBM CEO Ginni Rometty's guiding principles for transforming a company.  They apply for individuals and countries as well.  She has been under some fire for the lackluster performance of a storied US company, but she sounds determined, cheerful and confident through it all.  I commend her, because after Google, I believe IBM is a major leader for our technology future.  Their smarter planet campaign was terrific, as they played up Big Data and analytics in for a stretch.  But their vision on artificial intelligence and sentient robots makes me feel like IBM can actually pull off what her technology and entrepreneurial predecessors could not.
