Recent weeks have seen major announcements from IBM including launching a Watson business unit to “productize” cognitive computing, selling the System x (x86) Server business to Lenovo, and significant investments in expanding its focus on Cloud with SoftLayer as a key foundation. On February 18 and 19, 2014, IBM hosted analyst updates to further describe their heightened focus on Cloud.

IBM is now actively seeking candidates for its open beta program that will run through June 2014.
