    IBM is mostly a services company and services is people-based. People-based businesses are very difficult to scale 00 you generally need more people. Technology businesses are easy to scale you just add more machines and software. So how do you scale a people business? Through “social” means. You use technology to scale the individual and the best way to do that today is through “social” technologies. So while IBM’s customers rightly say “We are not IBM” IBM knows that they can benefit from the same technologies and processes. It will be interesting to see how IBM manages this shift and how those lessons can be applied elsewhere. Jon Iwata and team are embarked on an interesting venture.
