IBM's Cloud Fuels Growth For Clients Around The Globe













LAS VEGAS, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM ® (NYSE: IBM) today announced that clients from across industries and around the world are taking advantage of IBM's cloud solutions to improve flexibility, drive international expansion and better respond to today's fast-moving and ever-changing business environment.

Businesses and government agencies around the world are quickly adopting cloud computing, not only to lower costs but also to improve business processes, reinvent relationships with their customers and enter new markets easier and more efficiently.  Through IBM's engagement with global industry leaders like Turk Telekom, The Loft Group, Music Mastermind, KUULUU and many others, IBM continues to extend its cloud leadership worldwide to support companies that are increasingly relying on the cloud to market, sell, and develop products, manage supply chains and more. 

Turk Telekom also wanted to closely track costs and clearly communicate the pricing structure of the new cloud services to end users. "We wanted to make our system administrators and developers aware of the costs related to their demands," said Mehmet Selcuk Karaca, Turk Telekom consultant. "IBM's cloud offered a metering and billing solution to help us do that."

To address a varied spectrum of client needs and requirements, IBM offers a broad set of cloud capabilities in the world spanning private, public and hybrid clouds, as well as infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service and software-as-a-service-based solutions. Together, these offerings are driving tremendous growth for IBM, delivering $4.4 billion of revenue for cloud-based solutions in 2013, up 69 percent year to year.

"IBM's commitment to invest in high growth areas stems from our focus on delivering the solutions our clients need to be successful in today's market and enabling them to be better positioned for tomorrow's growth," said IBM General Manager of Cloud Services Jim Comfort. "Our work with companies like the ones we are announcing today demonstrate that IBM is the only company that can deliver cloud solutions at a truly global level."
