I am thrilled to share that IBM has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Turbonomic today, April 28th, 2021. As we reflect on the digital transformation that has accelerated in the last year, thereby increasing the need for advanced AI solutions like Turbonomic, the timing could not be more opportune for our partnership to evolve into an acquisition.
A Letter to Turbonomic Customers,
Today, we face a challenge and uncertainty that none of us could have imagined. The global COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically affected our way of life. Presently, it continues to introduce new challenges daily. Our thoughts and prayers are first and foremost with those and their families who are struggling with the virus. At the same time, we are enormously grateful for all the healthcare teams, who put themselves at risk, treating the infected and trying to protect the global population. Right now, we have two clear priorities: the health of our employees and the operational capacity to serve our beloved customers.
Thanksgiving travel is seldom fun. It seems every year I come closer to the edge of missing the flight that will disappoint someone I care about. As I rushed to catch my flight the other week, however, my smartphone began tilting the field back in my favor – by making decisions for me. Rather than speeding blindly into a traffic jam, my phone guided me off the Mass Pike, over streets I hadn’t seen in ages, delivering me to my flight on time as if traffic didn’t exist. Its actions not only helped me catch my flight, but also helped clear the way for emergency crews to assist those impacted. When the radio eventually reported the accident, I realized this combination of events was yet another example of how autonomic intelligence is revolutionizing our lives.
