International Business Machines (NYSE: IBM) has spent the better part of the past decade repositioning itself for the era of cloud computing and artificial intelligence. The $2 billion acquisition of SoftLayer in 2013 kick-started the company's cloud business, and the $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat in 2019 was a bet that enterprises would gravitate toward multi-cloud and hybrid cloud deployments. The company unloaded its semiconductor manufacturing operation and its x86 server operations back in 2014, spun-off its managed infrastructure services business in 2021, dumped its Watson Health business in 2022, and largely gave up on its enterprise blockchain efforts earlier this year.
