Did you know that IBM was initially called as Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company (CTR) at the time of its inception in 1911? However, after three years, it was renamed as International Business Machines Corporation (IBM).

Since 2010, AppFusions began productizing holistic integrated solutions, bringing together old and new systems, processes, data, and people within common platforms via deep, vetted, and proven workflow integration solutions. Ellen Feaheny, CEO of AppFusions shares her thoughts about IBM platform for business needs:
“It’s no secret that IBM is a “seasoned” company when it comes to enterprise-grade solutions, with both wide and large-sized-customer base, solution offerings, and yes, hard-knocks “breadth” too. Ultimately, this is their blessing for stability too. Few companies have the deep large-scale experience and breadth that comes with enormous implementations like IBM has ventured into and driven over the years. In my opinion, this is also the experience an enterprise wants on its side as you evolve in your “digital transformation journey” – which all companies must do for survival – whether in phases or not. Strategically, IBM has made great investments in recent years that are compounding in value for the customers. Their investments in data, analytics and cloud – “which includes hardware, software and services for hybrid, public, and private cloud solutions” – are especially key. And their investment ROI is growing fast now: as of April 2018, IBM cloud revenue was at a $17.7 billion run from prior 12 months. IBM’s “business transition” success is clearly “turning a corner” in the enterprise solutions market, and with their long-standing large-enterprise customer-base, they are logistically and logically positioned in the right place at the right time.”
