On 25 October, IBM's board of directors elected Virginia M. Rometty
president and chief executive officer of IBM, effective 1 January 2012. Ginni,
as she is known to many, is currently IBM senior vice president and group
executive for sales, marketing and strategy. She succeeds Samuel J Palmisano, who
currently is IBM chairman, president and chief executive officer. Mr. Palmisano
will remain chairman of the board.
In a written statement, Mr. Palmisano said, "Ginni Rometty has
successfully led several of IBM's most important businesses over the past decad
- from the formation of IBM Global Business Services to the build-out of our
Growth Markets Unit. But she is more than a superb operational executive. With
every leadership role, she has strengthened our ability to integrate IBM's
capabilities for our clients. She has spurred us to keep pace with the needs
and aspirations of our clients by deepening our expertise and industry
knowledge. Ginni's long-term strategic thinking and client focus are seen in
our growth initiatives, from cloud computing and analytics to the
commercialisation of Watson. She brings to the role of CEO a unique combination
of vision, client focus, unrelenting drive, and passion for IBMers and the
company's future. I know the board agrees with me that Ginni is the ideal CEO
to lead IBM into its second century."
As IBM's global sales leader, Ginni, oversees IBM's sales community including
the Global Business Partners and Midmarket organisation. She is accountable for
revenue, profit and client satisfaction in the 170 global markets in which IBM
does business. She is responsible for IBM's worldwide results, which exceeded
$99 billion in 2010. She also is responsible for leading IBM's global strategy,
marketing and communications functions. Previously, Ginni was senior vice
president of IBM Global Business Services. In that role, she led the successful
integration of PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting—the largest acquisition in
professional services history, building a global team of more than 100,000
business consultants and services experts. She has also served as general
manager of IBM Global Services, Americas
and of IBM's Global Insurance and Financial Services Sector.
I have known and worked with Ginni for many years. She is an exceptional leader
and an expert in the disciplines that are critical to our future success. She
is a proven advocate of our Business Partner community and understands the
importance the channel brings to IBM. I look forward to her continued support
and leadership as IBM moves into its second century.

Danish energy company Vestas Wind Systems will use IBM
big data analytics software and powerful IBM systems to improve wind turbine
placement for optimal energy output. Turbine placement is a major challenge for
the renewable energy industry, and Vestas expects to accelerate the adoption of
wind energy internationally and expand its business into new markets by
overcoming this challenge.
The final solution cut the processing time from 3
weeks to 15 minutes and cut server energy consumption by 40%.
Vestas is addressing the issue of turbine placement by using IBM BigInsights
software and an IBM "Firestorm" supercomputer to analyze petabytes of
structured and unstructured data such as weather reports, moon and tidal
phases, geospatial and sensor data, satellite images, deforestation maps, and
weather modeling research to pinpoint installation. The analysis, which used to
take weeks, can now be done in less than one hour.
IBM Virtual University for IT Consultants & System
for IT Consultants & System Integrators is designed to present education on
