Abstract:
IBM had forayed into the IT services business with the formation of IBM Global Services in the early 1990s, under its former Chief Executive, Louis V. Gerstner Jr. Although the revenues of IBM Global Services rose consistently and it was an expert technology solutions provider, it lacked the expertise to deal with real time business operations and practical problems faced by its clients. In its quest for a partner with deep business expertise, IBM acquired PWCC in mid-2002 for $3.5 million, to further strengthen its commitment to its IT services business.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To evaluate the potential benefits of IBM after acquiring PWCC.
