Discussion on: Why is IBM cloud not widely used?

I evaluated IBM's cloud offering a few years ago, and it felt without focus, without direction, and geared towards getting you into costly multi-year service contracts. They had a few good things (Watson and OpenSwift IIRC) but the rest was just acquire-and-try-to-paint-it-blue.

As someone else has already stated, they have a difference target market, and their message usually goes toward different ears.
