The month of January at IBM was filled with a slew of announcements in hardware, software, services, acquisitions, and corporate initiatives. I was particularly proud to see IBM surpass its own record and earn more U.S.
patents than any other company for the fourteenth consecutive year. Many useful products and services will come from those patents over the years ahead. The announcements made by the company during the month are below, and the complete Index of IBM Happenings (by year and month) is here.
