  • IBM CEO Arvind Krishna says that Microsoft and Amazon will be partners with IBM on the hybrid cloud via their Red Hat technology platform.

    “It’s a question of understanding what’s hybrid as opposed to pure public,” says IBM CEO Arvind Krishna. “I look at both Microsoft and Amazon as likely partners in this journey, not as being the one and two. In the hybrid world, the question is where does the client want to decide where the workload runs? They can run it on Amazon, they can run it on Microsoft, they can run it on IBM, or they can run it on private. What is the technology platform that goes across all of those? Red Hat gives a great answer to that technology platform.”

    “There are many capabilities people need around integration and cybersecurity,” adds Krishna. “We’ll bring those to bear. Then we will bring our services to bear for those clients who would like to get that help both in improving the skills of their own people or for us to do the work for them. That is why you see us report $24 billion dollars in the trailing 12 months on total cloud revenue. That’s a hybrid market and not a singular public cloud market.”
