re: IBM Creates Federal Cloud Innovation Center
IBM would have been better off investing earlier in this initiative than in challenging the CIA's award of a cloud services contract to Amazon Web Services. It mainly called attention to the fact that Amazon's proposal stood up well to critical review. IBM usually follows the rule, concentrate on applying your own strengths, not on striking a blow at a successful competitor.So far, it's gambled on the latter strategy and lost.

re: IBM Creates Federal Cloud Innovation Center
The battle for cloud dominance is heating up. The news that IBM is committing 500 employees and some of its top research and innovation staffers to the Washington, D.C. innovation center follows recent news that Amazon Web Services had opened a 500-person office in Herndon Va.
