Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Ginni Rometty, chairman, president and CEO of IBM (IBM) - Get Report , to discuss her company's transformation and her recent visit to the White House.
Rometty said that this week's meeting in Washington was one in a series discussing modernizing the government's IT infrastructure and also about educating the next generation of IT professionals.
She said actions are being taken along the second front to expand apprenticeships and also to consider a six-year high school curriculum.
Turning to the topic of IBM, Rometty said that what's great about her company is that it's reinvented itself multiple times throughout its history and its in the middle of doing it again, focusing this time on the cloud and cognitive technologies like Watson.
She said IBM knows how the world works and can help businesses change to meet modern challenges. Nearly half of IBM's workforce is now millennials, Rometty added, and they're all focused on modernizing the work that needs to be done.
The cloud is an important part of where we're going, Rometty continued, but 80% of the world's information isn't in the cloud, it's proprietary. IBM has the expertise to access that information and use for companies to go on the offensive.
Cramer asked about some of IBM's up and coming technologies. Rometty said that the key to technology is not just having it, but also having the know-how to do something with it.
IBM is leading the nation in patents filed, receiving 8,088 new patents in 2016 alone. Some of those IBM develops, Rometty said, while others they license to others to develop.
One of those technologies is block chain, which Rometty described as the technology to exchange information in a trusted environment. Bitcoin is an example of block chain, she said, but the technology goes far beyond. What the internet was for communications, block chain will be for trusted communications. IBM is already deploying the technology for things like food safety, cargo shipping and other applications.
Finally, when asked what motivates her to do such a challenging job, Rometty said that talking to IBM's clients provides all the motivation she needs, especially in areas like healthcare, where Watson is helping to diagnose cancer patients and map the human genome.
