IBM sees cloud business reaching $7B

Big Blue uses team approach to increase business

IBM Corp. expects its cloud computing revenues to hit $7 billion by 2015 because of its strategy of deploying tiger teams, according to a report by InformationWeek

The team members bring varying specialized skill sets such as software development, infrastructure planning and services delivery, InformationWeek said, and they can rapidly respond to customer questions about the cloud.

The teams can start as small as five people, but expand as more resources are needed, the report said.
