IBM IX made a huge play this morning with the intent to acquire Bluewolf at the end of Q2. IBM have been making noises in the industry that they are looking to grow out their Salesforce practice and here it is... Play Number 1. It would also seem that they are running a similar play to Deloitte Digital and looking to grow the practice under a separate business. 

This is possibly to give the business a sense of autonomy and to move away from some stigma of the IBM brand.

One to watch this year...
