    So what happens when

    All the consultants who know anything of any value are dinobabies who get pushed out? If you're going to do consultancy work, what you know is everything and, nothing against younger people, but they haven't had the time to learn as much.

      Neudesic is exactly the kind of consultancy that laid-off IBMers would move to... and would flourish once freed from IBM's stilting bureaucracy and life-sapping HR hoops to jump through.

    They don't care

    As with all IBM acquisitions.

    They don't care about the company.

    They don't care about their people.

    They don't care about their products.

    They only care about the figure it will add to IBM's "growth", and being able to pillage another customer list.

      It's called IBM Cloud - our branding is so pervasive and subtle that you use it without being able to help yourself! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Cower before the might of the IBM marketing machine!! We called one of our operating systems "i" - just a lower-case i so that you CAN'T EVEN GOOGLE IT. FEAR US, PUNY HUMANS!!
