Detailed SWOT Analysis of IBM

 

Strength

This section is available only in the 'Complete Report' on purchase.

Weakness

1. Sluggish growth in core business units: IBM’s main business units which include Global Technology Services, Global Business Services, Software, Systems Hardware, and Global Financing have been experiencing a decline or flat revenues. The company needs to transform this business and shift its practices to digital, cognitive and cloud to get back on the growth path. IBM’s Global Business Services, Global Technology Services, Systems and Global Financing Services had more or less flat revenues in 2020, with GBS showing 3.8% fall in revenues, GTS growing by 5.7%, Systems falling by 8.2%, and financing falling by 19.8%.

2. Loss of confidence expressed by major shareholder: IBM showed stagnant growth over the last few years registering more than 20 straight quarters without revenue growth as of 2017. IBM counts Berkshire Hathaway headed by Warren Buffet as one of its premier shareholders held an 8.5% stake in IBM as of 2016. Berkshire reduced stake in the company in 2017 with concerns regarding increasing competition faced by IBM in cloud segment and declining global server market size. IBM is facing serious competition from other major players in the market such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google and that has led to investors doubting its capability to protect its market. With Buffet’s faith shaken in the company, IBM is likely to face further scrutiny over its performance in the coming quarters.
