IBM Divestiture – 2019

Background

IBM recently completed its purchase of Raleigh’s North Carolina Linux Powerhouse, Red Hat.

As part of that corporate merger, it appears regulars whether here overseas are concerned of allowing too much vertical technology ( Application software, Operating System, and Integration Software ) to rest in a single entity.

 

Affected Product Lines

HCL Software

  1. Collaboration
    • Notes Domino
  2. Application Security
    • AppScan
  3. Application Delivery
    • Bigfix
  4. Marketing
    • Unica
  5. Digital Experience

 

Impact

The current customer base of the products will obviously be affected.

Impacts will include license renewals, support issue tracking, etc.

Customer facing support staff will also have to respond graciously concerns raised by customers.
