Cloud News

Wade Tyler Millward

‘I want to increase the number of clients, also, not just wallet share,’ IBM CEO Arvind Krishna says at The Channel Company’s Best of Breed conference in Atlanta. ‘That means that we need your help. We are not going to go there directly at all.’

Under Arvind Krishna’s watch, IBM has decreased the number of direct customers from about 5,000 in 2020 to about 400, the CEO told a crowd Monday. And the tech giant plans to leave potential new clients to partners.

“I want to increase the number of clients, also, not just wallet share,” Krishna said. “That means that we need your help. We are not going to go there directly at all.”

The CEO of Armonk, N.Y.-based IBM discussed his company’s investment in partners, the integration of subsidiary Red Hat, encouraged partners to raise their prices given the inflationary economic environment and even weighed in on chipmaker Broadcom‘s pending acquisition of cloud vendor VMware at CRN parent The Channel Company’s 2022 XChange Best of Breed (BoB) conference in Atlanta.

Krishna was on stage responding to questions from The Channel Company Founding Partner Robert Faletra and CRN Executive Editor of News Steven Burke.

[RELATED: IBM Assimilates Red Hat Storage Technology Into Own Storage Business]

Mark Wyllie, CEO of Boca Raton, Fla.-based IBM partner Flagship Solutions Group, told CRN in an interview that he’s glad to hear IBM plans to continue integrating different parts of the Red Hat business.

Earlier this month, IBM announced that it had absorbed storage technology and teams from its Red Hat business to combine them with IBM’s own storage business unit as a way to help clients take advantage of the two without requiring extra integration or having to deal with multiple sales teams.

Wyllie wants to see IBM further integrate Red Hat services into its portfolio to help partners push the services out to existing IBM customers.

“I think that’d be a benefit to us and IBM,” Wyllie said.

Red Hat’s autonomy within IBM has been essential to its position as an open source software vendor. Krishna clarified Monday that the Red Hat brand will stay in areas where it has a stronger brand than IBM. For storage, “maybe we already have a storage channel, which Red Hat kind of didn’t,” Krishna said.

He said IBM gave Red Hat more security and management capabilities after its acquisition in 2019. Partners can expect more integration between Red Hat and IBM in areas involving Linux.

“So if you can take maybe 50,000 Linux servers and consolidate them using OpenShift on LinuxOne, maybe that‘s a play to be made,” Krishna said. “There’s a few clients who have woken up to that and are doing it right now. So I think that’s going to be a really big play you’re going to see.”

During his talk, Krishna encouraged partners to explore more opportunities in IBM’s artificial intelligence operations (AIOps) offerings, including Turbonomic, Watson AIOps and Instana.

Customers will continue to spend on automation tools, he said.

“The ability to go into an enterprise and tell them, ‘Look, we can do things a lot more automated. We can take some cost out. We can do monitoring, and eventually go closed loop on AI’ – which I don‘t think is happening yet,” Krishna said. “I think is a massive opportunity given the current labor market.”

IBM’s security offerings, as well as Red Hat and containerization offerings, are also areas for partners to invest in, Krishna said.

As for Broadcom and VMware, Krishna said that VMware remains an important partner for his company. And as long as VMware keeps investing in its products, it should remain “a strong franchise.”

“I think it’ll come down to what is going to happen in 2023 and 2024,” Krishna said. “As long as they keep innovating on the products, they keep giving more function back to their clients – it’s a strong franchise. That falls away, then that‘s a different question. But I think the virtualization world likes those products. Now it’s up to them to keep innovating.”

Krishna also told partners they should raise prices to cover the growing cost of labor with such high inflation in the U.S.

“From our conversations with clients, I would tell you that nobody loves it, but they all understand,” he said. “Because most of our clients are doing the same out to their clients. … Pricing power comes down to something simple. Is the product highly valuable and is it sticky? … In a world of fewer skills, if you have the skills, you can price those skills.”

Editor’s note: Technology Business Research analysts focuses on technology markets and companies that move and shape those markets. 

+++

HAMPTON, N.H. – Revenue expansion in the IT services sector continues, driven by vendors’ investments in talent and portfolio expansion and emphasis on strengthening relationships with customers and alliance partners.

While political and macroeconomic challenges such as rising inflation and the natural gas crisis are factors that might create pockets of slower growth, TBR expects the overall IT services market to continue to grow in the coming quarters. IT systems have become corporate utilities that enable clients to transform business models, contain costs and accelerate growth, and TBR expects demand for IT services around digital transformation to remain elevated. For the rest of 2022, attracting and managing talent will remain vendors’ core challenge to successfully growing revenue and managing costs.

Prediction No. 1: Focus on talent management, refined during the pandemic, will recede in a post-pandemic environment

Senior Analyst Elitsa Bakalova: Talent management remained a core priority and challenge for IT services providers, and none of the standard HR approaches changed during the first nine months of 2022 as vendors strived to capture rising demand for digital transformation.

As TBR predicted at the end of 2021, attracting, retaining, upskilling, promoting and rewarding talent are all necessary HR motions and further accelerated during the past three quarters. There is an ever-increasing need for people as vendors build their benches to capture opportunities and support revenue growth. New job creation and the gradual alleviation of pandemic pressures have encouraged employees to pursue career-building opportunities, leading to elevated employee attrition of 20.8% in 2Q22 compared to 16% in 2Q21, 14.1% in 2Q20 and 17.6% in 2Q19, on average, for the 31 vendors in TBR’s IT Services Vendor Benchmark. While vendors continue to recruit via traditional methods, more are investing in reskilling and upskilling as well as launching educational initiatives.

Finding and keeping employees in the IT services market is increasingly difficult as talent poaching intensifies for a finite number of resources and companies’ bookings remain high. Vendors continue to place a premium on skilled resources, offering sizable signing bonuses and higher wages. Increasing labor costs due to wage hikes and robust retention bonuses along with rising facility, travel and communication expenses are pressuring IT services vendors’ profitability.

Prediction No. 2: The decarbonization shift from promises to genuine results opens a massive opportunity for IT services

Elitsa: This prediction remained true during the first nine months of 2022 as vendors TBR identified as decarbonization leaders continued to invest in developing their services and solutions portfolios to support clients’ sustainability initiatives and address their internal decarbonization-related pledges. As we anticipated, IT services vendors are increasingly bringing clarity to decarbonization by harnessing emerging technologies such as blockchain as well as established analytics and AI solutions.

According to TBR’s first Decarbonization Market Landscape, “Although some firms have been active over the last few decades around developing and acting on decarbonization strategies, many were induced — be it from competition, stakeholders or regulatory evolution — to improve, update, revisit or outright announce new net-zero targets, which in accurate years have become somewhat of a comprehensive measure of a firm’s overall decarbonization efforts. … With a wider set of buyers relying heavily on technology to measure and manage emissions as well as advisory services to assess, plan and verify new initiatives, professional services vendors will continue to be key players in the enterprise decarbonization space. … Vendors must take care to continue to learn and stay up to date on reporting standards and regulatory change, supporting both internal and commercial efforts.”

Prediction No. 3: Blockchain winter ends and 5G & edge bloom in 2022, bringing new enhanced revenue streams to IT services vendors

Elitsa: While IT services vendors have increasingly announced investments in professional and managed services to enable adoption of blockchain, 5G and edge solutions, the trend is not mainstream across all 31 vendors in TBR’s IT Services Vendor Benchmark. However, select vendors have invested in expansion in the segments to benefit from diversified revenue streams.

As TBR expected, partnerships between IT services vendors and technology providers have been a key lever for increasing the value of vendors’ solutions and expanding their portfolio and client reach. For example, IBM partnered with Telus to deploy an edge computing platform across Canada, which expanded the reach of IBM Cloud Satellite by running the distributed cloud solution on Telus’ 5G network. Telus will leverage IBM Consulting services to implement AI and automation solutions, including products such as Cloud Pak for Network Automation. Atos partnered with Verizon to integrate Atos Computer Vision into Verizon’s multi-access edge computing network. This integration will bring video analytics services that utilize AI to customers and will provide Verizon with access to Atos’ BullSequana Edge servers to further advance 5G solutions.

During 2022 vendors have also leveraged acquisitions to expand their capabilities. For example, Atos acquired U.K.-based Ipsotek in 2021, adding software and IP to its solutions offerings to expand its edge AI/machine learning offerings and introduce video analytics solutions through Ipsotek’s VISuite. In 2022 IBM acquired U.S.-based Sentaca, a telecom consultancy and systems integrator, which strengthened IBM Consulting’s capabilities around helping communication service providers integrate with cloud-native services and architectures to better enable 5G for their customers.

Killexams : IBM adds Red Hat Storage to bolster hybrid cloud efforts

IBM announced on Wednesday plans to integrate Red Hat’s storage products and associate teams into IBM’s Storage business unit. The goal, said IBM, is to bring consistent application and data storage across on-premises infrastructure and cloud deployments.

“Our clients are rapidly embracing a hybrid cloud strategy, and one of the key lynchpins of a successful hybrid cloud deployment is uniform access to data,” said Denis Kennelly, IBM storage GM. “By bringing together the teams and integrating our products under one roof, we are accelerating the IBM’s hybrid cloud storage strategy while maintaining commitments to Red Hat customers and the open-source community.”

IBM acquired Red Hat in 2018 for $34 billion. After closing the deal the following year, IBM has made Red Hat’s OpenShift containerization software products the centerpiece of its hybrid cloud strategy. This latest move puts a number of Red Hat storage products under the aegis of IBM Storage from here on out. 

OpenShift Data Foundation (ODF) will serve as the foundation for IBM Spectrum Fusion container-native storage for OpenShift deployments. IBM will also offer new Ceph solutions, it said. Ceph is Red Hat’s cloud infrastructure and web-scale object storage platform. Rook, the open-source file, block and object storage tool for cloud deployments, and NooBaa, Red Hat’s software-defined data storage platform, also find new homes at IBM Storage.

The move will provide IBM Storage customers with a single data lake house and platform to support AI/ML workloads, High-Performance Computing (HPC) and other tasks that require aggregation and inference using unstructured, according to the company.

“Benefits can include less time and effort to administer, reduced data movement and redundancy, direct access to data for analytics tools, advanced schema management and data governance, all supported by distributed file and object storage engineered to be cost-effective,” said IBM.

The company also sees a benefit to customers looking to gain efficiency through automation, from staging environments to deployment, validating configuration changes, database schema and data updates and package updates.

“Red Hat Ceph Storage is tightly integrated with Red Hat OpenStack Platform, and it’s at the core of OpenShift Data Foundation, with many clients today running Rook as the Ceph operator. Ceph runs securely anywhere OpenShift runs on-premises and in the cloud, simplifying operations with tremendous scale and speeding time to market for application developers,” explained Kennelly

Kennelly spelled out in simple terms what the announcement means for IBM Storage’s clients. “Today’s news means faster hybrid, multi-cloud deployments, with greater simplicity and expanded platform support backed by IBM’s global sales and lifecycle services. IBM will continue Red Hat’s commitment to existing customers and the open-source community, and we are accelerating our roadmap with new products and services to be announced in the coming months,” he said.

IBM said it will assume sponsorship of the Ceph Foundation, and will maintain Ceph and OpenShift Data Foundation as “100% open source,” continuing to follow an upstream-first model. The transition is expected to be completed by the beginning of 2023. IBM anticipates new Ceph and Spectrum Fusion storage solution to begin shipping in the first half of 2023.

The arrangement underscores IBM’s emphasis on hybrid cloud, which accounted for more than a third of the company’s total revenue.

“Hybrid cloud is about offering clients a platform that can straddle multiple public clouds, private clouds, and on-premise properties, all the way to the edge,” said IBM chairman and CEO Arvind Krishna during a quarterly call with analysts. Krishna counted more than 4,000 hybrid cloud platform clients, with more than 250 added this past quarter.

Killexams : Cyolo receives Investment from IBM Ventures for Zero Trust Secure Access Platform

The investment by IBM Ventures enables further collaboration to accelerate the adoption of modernized identity-based connectivity for today’s digital organizations

TEL AVIV, Israel, October 12, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cyolo, creator of a Zero Trust identity-based access solution for IT and OT, announced today a new investment from IBM Ventures. Together IBM Ventures and Cyolo plan to collaborate and help modernize authentication for digital businesses.

In today’s digital environment, organizations need to evolve their access and connectivity security to protect today’s distributed work environments. With 84% of organizations having experienced identity-based cyber-attacks, it’s no longer safe to grant employees universal access to an entire network. Instead, access and connectivity should be granted on an individual basis and mapped to specific assets and data.

In addition to financial investment, IBM will provide cybersecurity expertise and technical resources in support of Cyolo’s Zero Trust Secure Access platform. Additionally, the teams will collaborate on go-to-market initiatives ranging from partner engagements to panel sessions in support of Cyolo’s mission to connect users to the assets they need to do their job simply, safely and efficiently.

IBM Ventures’ investment in Cyolo is further evidence of the urgent need for cybersecurity solutions that reduce complexity and work seamlessly across distributed workforces and environments. Earlier this year, IBM Ventures participated in Cyolo’s Series B, contributing to the company’s total raise of $60 Million. The new investment will help Cyolo to further scale its market presence.

"For many enterprises, the acceleration of remote workers has created both opportunities and challenges. The distributed model for people and assets has made connecting and securing them difficult," said Prof. Yaron Wolfsthal, Head of IBM Cyber Security CoE, Israel. "With IBM’s investment in Cyolo, we’ll continue our focus to make sure clients can break down silos and quickly provide secure access across the distributed environments," said Ben Daniels, IBM Ventures Partner.

"As we see the demand for identity-based access solutions continue to grow, we’re excited to partner with such an industry leader like IBM to accelerate our growth and providing even greater cyber resilience to our already extensive market reach," said Cyolo CEO and co-founder Almog Apirion. "We look forward to working with IBM as we enable more companies to have ease of mind knowing that their digital assets have security protections in place from edge to core."

About Cyolo

Cyolo helps organizations in the IT and OT spaces to stay both secure and productive in an era of distributed workforces and unprecedented cyber threats. Cyolo’s next-generation zero trust network access solution (ZTNA 2.0) enables all users, including employees, third parties, and remote and on-site workers, to seamlessly and securely connect to their working environments via modern identity-based access.

Killexams : Biden to tout IBM's plans to invest $20 billion in New York over the next decade

U.S. President Joe Biden holds a virtual meeting with business leaders and state governors to discuss supply chain problems, particularly addressing semiconductor chips, on the White House campus in Washington, March 9, 2022.

Jonathan Ernst | Reuters

President Joe Biden on Thursday will tout IBM Corp's plans to invest $20 billion in New York over the next decade in development and manufacturing of semiconductors, mainframe technology, artificial intelligence and quantum computing.

The announcement is the latest in a string of investments unveiled since Biden signed the Chips and Science bill in August that funded $52 billion to subsidize semiconductor chips manufacturing and research.

The administration says hefty subsidies for private businesses are necessary because China and the European Union had been awarding billions in incentives to chip companies.

Biden has sought to capitalize on the investment announcements ahead of next month's midterm congressional elections. Last month, he traveled to Ohio to speak at the site of Intel Corp's planned $20 billion semiconductor manufacturing facility.

On Tuesday, Micron Technology said it would invest up to $100 billion over the next 20-plus years to build a semiconductor fabrication facility in New York that is expected to create nearly 50,000 jobs, with the first phase investment of $20 billion planned this decade.

White House National Economic Director Brian Deese on Twitter called the Micron investment "a significant win for US economic & national security" and "part of a deliberate, long term industrial strategy that will bolster U.S. competitiveness, & increase our long-term productive capacity."

Biden will visit IBM's Poughkeepsie, New York, site home to of the largest concentrations of quantum computers and will be joined by Chief Executive Arvind Krishna.

IBM said it plans to make its Poughkeepsie site "a global hub of the company's quantum computing development, just as it is today for mainframes." IBM did not provide a detailed breakdown of its $20 billion investment plans.

IBM said chips funding "will ensure a reliable and secure supply of next-generation chips for today's computers and artificial intelligence platforms."

Killexams : As NIST Prepares For Quantum Safe Security, IBM Rolls Out Support

The world of cryptography moves at a very slow, but steady pace. New cryptography standards must be vetted over an extended period and therefore new threats to existing standards need to be judged by decades-long timelines because updating crypto standards is a multiyear journey. Quantum computing is an important threat looming on the horizon. Quantum computers can solve many equations simultaneously, and based on Shor’s Algorithm, crypto experts estimate that they will be able to crack asymmetric encryption. In addition, Grover’s algorithm provides a quadratic reduction in decryption time of symmetric encryption. And the question these same crypto experts try to answer is not if this will happen, but when.

Today’s crypto algorithms use mathematical problems such as factorization of large numbers to protect data. With fault-tolerant quantum computers, factorization can be solved in theory in just a few hours using Shor’s algorithm. This same capability also compromises cryptographic methods based on the difficulty of solving the discrete logarithm problems.

The term used to describe these new, sturdier crypto standards is “quantum safe.” The challenge is we don’t know exactly when fault-tolerant quantum computers will have the power to consistently break existing encryption standards, which are now in wide use. There’s also a concern that some parties could download and store encrypted data for decryption later, when suitably capable quantum computers are available. Even if the data is over ten years old, there still could be relevant confidential information in the stored data. Think state secrets, financial and securities records and transactions, health records, or even private or classified communications between public and/or government figures.

U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) believes it’s possible that RSA2048 encryption can be cracked by 2035. Other U.S. government agencies and other security-minded entities have similar timelines. Rather than wait for the last minute to upgrade security, NIST started a competition to develop quantum-safe encryption back in 2016. After several rounds of reviews, on July 5th of this year, NIST chose four algorithms for the final stages of review before setting the standard. IBM developed three of them, two of those are supported in IBM’s Z16 mainframe today.

NISTNIST Announces First Four Quantum-Resistant Cryptographic Algorithms

The new IBM crypto algorithms are based on a family of math problems called structured lattices. Lattice problems have a unique characteristic that will make it reasonably difficult to solve with quantum computing. Structured lattice problems require solving for two unknowns – a multiplier array and an offset and is extremely difficult for quantum computing to solve the lattice problems. The shortest vector problem (SVP) and the closest vector problem (CVP) – upon which lattice cryptography is built – is considered extremely difficult to a quantum computer to solve. Each candidate crypto algorithm is evaluated not just for data security, but also for performance - the overhead cannot be too large for wide spread use.

The final selections are expected in 2024, but there’s still a chance there will be changes before the final standards are released.

IBM Supports Quantum Safe in New Z-Series Mainframes

IBM made a strategic bet before the final NIST selections. The recently released IBM Z16 Series computers already support two of the final four quantum safe crypto candidates: the CRYSTALS-Kyber public-key encryption and the CRYSTALS-Dilithium digital signature algorithms. IBM is set to work with the industry to substantiate these algorithms in production systems. Initially, IBM is using its tape drive storage systems as a test platform. Because tape is often used for cold storage, it's an excellent medium for long-term data protection. IBM is working with its client base to find the appropriate way to roll out quantum-safe encryption to the market. This must be approached as a life cycle transformation. And, in fact, IBM is working with its customers to create a crypto-agile solution, which allows the exact crypto algorithm to change at any point in time without disrupting the entire system. It’s not just a rip and replace process. With crypto-agility, the algorithm is abstracted from the system software stack so a new algorithms can be deployed seamlessly. IBM is developing tools making crypto status part of the overall observability with a suitable dashboard to see crypto events, etc.

These new algorithms must be deployable to existing computing platforms, even at the edge. However, it's not going to feasible to upgrade every system; it’s probably going to be an industry-by-industry effort and industry consortia will be required. For example, IBM, GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communication Association), and Vodafone recently announced they will work via a GSMA Task Force to identify a process to implement quantum-safe technologies across critical telecommunications infrastructure, including the networks underpinning internet access and public utility management. The telecommunication network carries financial data, health information, public-sector infrastructure systems, and sensitive business data which needs to be protected as it traverses global networks.

What’s Next for Quantum Safe Algorithms

Fault-tolerant quantum computing is coming. When it will be available is still a guessing game, but the people who most care about data security are targeting 2035 to have quantum-safe cryptographic algorithms in place to meet the threat. But that’s not good enough. We need to start protecting critical data and infrastructure sooner than that, considering the length of time systems are deployed in the field and data is stored. Systems such as satellites and power stations are not easy to update in the field.

And there’s data that must be stored securely for future retrieval, including HIPAA (for medical applications), tax records, toxic substance control act and clinical trial data, and others.

Even after the deployment of these new algorithms, this is not the end – there may still be developments that can break even the next generation quantum-safe algorithms. The struggle between those that want to keep systems and data safe and those that want to crack them continues and why companies should look to building in crypto agility into their security plans.

Killexams : RemSense Technologies marries virtualplant system with IBM’s asset management portal

RemSense Technologies Ltd (ASX:REM) has reached a new development milestone after integrating its virtualplant asset visualisation system with partner IBM’s Maximo Application Suite (MAS).

The technology company says the two-way integration allows users to access RemSense’s industry-leading digital twin solution alongside IBM’s asset management system.

Ultimately, this makes simultaneous asset management more efficient — users can rapidly comprehend assets from the MAS portal within RemSense’s visually accurate virtual environment.

Additionally, users can monitor MAS plant asset data directly within virtualplant’s photorealistic environment.

This provides valuable background and insight as companies supervise their assets remotely, helping them engage in predictive maintenance when it counts.

Where to from here?

It won’t be long until industry gets to see the integration in action. RemSense and IBM plan to make their debut at the upcoming WA Mining Conference and Exhibition in Perth.

The maiden demonstration will take place at IBM’s booth (#8132) this week on October 12 and 13.

The companies are also working with several prospective adopters in Australia’s mining capital.

‘One click’ access

RemSense managing director and CEO Steve Brown said the IBM integration allowed users from either side to get the best of both worlds.

“The benefits of this integration will enable virtualplant and MAS users to fully benefit from the visualisation of assets through a ‘one click’ access for companies and contractors, from anywhere at any time,” he explained.
