Gartner IaaS Magic Quadrant https://twitter.com/PatrickMoorhead/status/1152353594320052224?s=19 AWS, Azure, GCP, IBM, Oracle Should we be worried about stalled growth Systems issues? IBM exceeded revenue, gross margin and profit expectations for Q2 and Wall Street are rewarding the company in after-hours. IBM's Q2 was a story of highs and lows. On the plus side, the company beat on revenue, gross profit and EPS and its cloud and cognitive business were up 3%. Only AWS and Azure have larger cloud revenue and cloud accounts for 25% of the company's revenues. 30% of its services backlog is cloud, a good sign. On the downside, it's the fourth straight quarter without revenue growth and the systems and financing business was down significantly. In GTS (Global Technology Services), IBM is de-emphasizing lower GM business to focus on higher profit engagements. The Red Hat acquisition starts to become even more important to IBM's cloud and services growth in the future.
