Transcript: M&A of IBM and Red Hat Presentation by: Alyssa Gonzalez, Justin Semkuley, Melanie Marshall, and Tyree Bynoe Main Challenges Main Challenges Facing IBM Competition Many firms are beginning to rely on more than one tech company to address their specific needs IBM's acquisition is an attempt to "catch up" to competitors In 2018 alone: Competition within the Market $7.5B $6.5B $5.2B Diversification IBM needed to reinvent themselves in order to remain current in the market They also needed to create value for their clients by enabling capabilities that transforms their business Although successful with their technology hardware and consulting services, IBM faces difficulties with translating their emerging tech (such as their AI division) into sales Red Hat acquisition is a response to this: hoping to blend their current software and tech with Red Hat's open source and cloud enterprise systems Product Diversification Technology Trends Many companies address their technological needs through the use of various tech companies Specialization in one specific sector is no longer efficient to generate substantial profits Most companies are also not fully integrated into the cloud system IBM plans on using Red Hat to accelerate cloud adoption by large clients--linking new tech with the old According to IBM, the potential market for this is worth $1 trillion! Changing Technology Trends Major Risks Major Post-Acquisition Risks Internal Internal Corporate Culture IBM is huge and monolithic (moves as one unit), whereas Red Hat is heavily into open sources culture Red Hat: decentralized, innovation-encouraged Red Hat allows employees to contribute to upstream projects even if there exists a conflict of interest--IBM prohibits this IBM's challenge is how to handle both cultures and avoid facing problems with employee retention The values that Red Hat brings to the community will deteriorate if IBM prevents Red Hat from operating and maintaining its culture as it is currently Corporate Culture IBM saw tremendous growth in stock value and evolved into the largest systems consulting company in the world CEO of Red Hat believes that their unique culture and unwavering commitment to open source innovation will be preserved post-acquisition Corporate Culture Strategic Strategic Data Security Acquiring Red Hat creates the possibility that the data of both Red Hat's and IBM's users may face data security risks Both IBM and Red Hat will have to implement measures in place to ensure that their client's information is protected against security breaches Data Security Obsolescence of Cloud Systems Cloud systems could become an outdated technology Will need to have the ability to continuously be able to improve and sustain their cloud systems with Red Hat Potential losses resulting from their cloud systems operations will need to be shielded by IBM's other operations Obsolescence of Cloud Systems Innovation Switching from old school thinking of what worked in the past will work in the future Possible changes in culture may negatively impact employee morale and innovation from both IBM and Red Hat's sides New revenue streams for IBM resulting from cloud computing Switching from old-school, on-premise infrastructure Innovation Return on Investment There exists the overall risk for IBM that their investment in Red Hat does not create any values or synergies for IBM in the long-run Return on Investment Balanced Scorecard Balanced Scorecard Success of the cloud services Continuing to provide existing services at high quality Marketing Red Hat Dealing with culture differences Key Performance Drivers Innovation/Product Diversification Market Competitiveness Data Security Multiple products/services per customer Key Performance Drivers Recommendations Recommendations Solutions to New Risks Solutions to New Risks Corporate Culture Differences: open communication work flexibility to find balance between IBM/Red Hat culture Potential Loss of Data: develop a conversion program to merge/transfer data Changing Business Model/Innovation Concerns: properly prepare employees for change find ways to keep morale high Solutions to New Risks Cloud Systems Outdated: pre-acquisition business model provides additional cloud expertise from Red Hat IBM mitigate risk Return on Investment: realize what Red Hat brings to the table use this to improve changing business model Conclusion Wrap-up References https://www.ibm.com/annualreport/2017/assets/downloads/IBM_Annual_Report_2017.pdf https://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/companyProfile/RHT https://www.barrons.com/articles/ibm-red-hat-acquisition-1540762149 https://techcrunch.com/story/ibm-acquires-red-hat https://techcrunch.com/2014/02/13/please-dont-tell-me-you-want-to-be-the-next-red-hat/ http://www.academia.edu/22926405/IBMs_Organizational_Culture https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/28/ibm-to-acquire-red-hat-in-deal-valued-at-34-billion.html http://fortune.com/2018/10/30/data-sheet-ibm-red-hat-deal-cloud-computing/
Transcript: During my internship at EY, I performed Spot Checks with at team of two members. Spot Checks are conducted in IP’s to review if the IP is using the money donated efficiently and if all the internal controls are in order. Spot Checks act as a way of finding problems in different areas of the IP and from this the auditors suggest recommendations. Spot Checks were restricted to a time limit of 8 hours in which the following tasks had to be performed: Review the internal controls of the IP Review the bank reconciliation statements Verify if the IP is using an efficient filing system Review that all cash funded by the Client is being used appropriately by the IP Review the vouchers of the IP for the year ended Discuss findings and suggest recommendations in close out meeting with the Finance Director and Director of the IP Together, we allocated tasks to each other with each member doing at least two tasks. I was given the duty to do bank reconciliations and processes review while my other two team members performed the other tasks. We later helped my fellow team member when we had completed our respective tasks in the review of vouchers to finish the task quickly as time was running out. I was given the task to lead the closeout meeting and before the close out meeting we all reviewed and analyzed our findings to suggest recommendations for improvement. In the end, we managed to finish in time and the directors of the IP agreed with all our findings and accepted our recommendations for improvement. IBM worked with FNB in South Africa By leveraging the mainframe and IMS, FNB was the first to bring a mobile banking app to South Africa resulting in the adoption of millions of new customers. 59% of the sample had Internet access, but that only 5% access it on a PC only, 27% on a mobile phone, while 27% has access to the Internet through a combination of mobile and PC. The data also showed that only 13% of rural areas have Internet access on a PC, which is a stark contrast to the 61% of rural areas that have Internet access on a mobile phone In terms of mobile banking, only 28% of people said that they do, while 72% said they did not. FNB sits with the majority share of mobile banking. While USSD users are at 59%, only 5% are using their browsers exclusively for banking, and apps-only is 1%. The data also indicated that 41% don’t know how to use mobile banking, 34% doesn’t trust it, and 8% said that it does not work on their phone, while only 2% said it’s not offered by their bank. This has interested me because coming from Africa myself, I know how difficult it is for many people to travel to banks just to do simple transactions like bank transfers. Studying in the UK, it took me a while to understand that one didn’t have to go to the bank to get a bank statement or do a bank transfer or just simply ordering food online. This moblie application was the foundation of growth of technology in its finest form . This allowed people to perform bank transfers in a swipe of their hands. Africa is a growing continent with South Africa being one of its main contributors of growth. Many call South Africa the “America “ of Africa. With such a title, this mobile banking application gave the opportunity for daily use technology to be integrated with daily actions. The sample study shows how 28 % people are using mobile banking. The data according to the report also showed how 41 % people did not know how to use mobile banking. This introduction of mobile banking can also allow FNB to go out in to the communities to increase customers by gibing tutorials on mobile banking I would like to be part of the innovators that are building a smarter planet and this role will give me the chance to do that while doing what I am truly passionate about. I believe working with high class professionals who are not only brilliant thinkers but also outstanding innovators will give me the opportunity to work in an environment where I can challenge my skills, abilities and creativity. Working in Finance will allow me to understand tasks such as financial planning that are laid in building business ideas that impact the world on a daily basis. I would love to plan and analyse the numbers that drive one of the biggest companies in the world forward. I have always enjoyed working with numbers and I believe this role in Finance will allow me to develop my passion of working with numbers and build my experience in financial planning and auditing Bold Understanding Innovative Loud Dedicated IBM HOW WOULD IBM BENEFIT ME?

Transcript: "What would you bring to IBM and how would IBM benefit you?" Please include an example of where you have demonstrated adaptability and/or flexibility?" I have had to be very adaptable whilst moving between three different part-time jobs/volunteer work. This improved my communication skills as I was teaching English and Mathematics to ages from 5 to 14 year olds and reporting back to parents. Watson is a computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language, by principal investigator David Ferrucci. Watson participated in the American quiz show "Jeopardy!". "Give an example of an IBM product, or IBM project or when IBM has worked with a client that particularly impresses you" I adapted to the new role very quickly and became more confident and decisive. How would IBM benefit me? After refereeing for a season, I became a tutor at a tutoring centre called Explore Learning. I then moved on to becoming a Surrey FA qualified referee, refereeing in the Croydon Municipal Mens Football League - It would give me a great experience in such a prestigious firm - It would allow me to build upon my passion for business and marketing - It would allow me to stand out from other job applicants in the future in an area I am so enthusiastic about As this was my first experience in a work environment, I had to adapt to the new skills required. These skills ranged from customer care to organising the shop layout. IBM Presentation Lewis Isaac I began volunteer work at the age of 15, working as a Sales Associate at Scope, my local charity shop. I would bring; IBM Watson - Past work experience and an assurance that this is area I would like to work in - A hard working attitude and a whole range of skills developed by many previous experiences - A great interest in the company and a strong ambition to make the most out of the opportunity I find IBM Watson particularly impressive, not only because of the amount of data it has to analyse in a short amount of time, but because of how it analyses the data and calculates the probability of it being correct. It also has to calculate how much of risk it should take in order beat opponents.
