IBM's CEO Virginia Rometty has been getting out quite a bit this week ahead of the company's Wednesday analyst meeting. She's trying to convince investors that business will stabilize and that there's a clear vision for growth. IBM is facing some major challenges in their core business, including shutting down data centers, slashing hardware spending and drastically reducing IT budgets as customers move to away from IBM to cloud services.
