IBM’s Software Group has reorganized its vast portfolio and more than 50,000 employees into two units: Software Solutions Group and Software Middleware Group. In the process it has promoted two executives and reassigned long-time executive Ambuj Goyal.
The Software Goup realignment was outlined in memo sent out this morning by senior vice president and group executive Steve Mills. A copy of the memo was obtained by Intelligent Enterprise. IBM declined to comment on the moves, but a source inside the company confirmed the memo’s authenticity.”
