IBM is a great multi-dimensional company but I beg to differ with you on the issue of disk drives.

With respect,it seems that the 'commoditization' of disks is a poor excuse for losing strategic advantage ... probably a bad management decision, perhaps conditioned by the the history related to EMC.

I think that IBM has been 'hollowed out' and is still trying to position itself into the storage market, reselling third-party products.

Business process outsourcing

Outsourcing is subcontracting a process, like product design or developing to a third-party company.The decision to outsource is often made in the interest of lowering cost or making better use of time and energy costs, redirecting energy directed at the competencies of a particular business, or to make more efficient use of land, labor, capital, technology and resources.
