IBM grows in cloud and data analytics but overall revenue slides

IBM’s revenue continued to decline in the second quarter but growth in some of its strategic initiatives like cloud computing and data analytics suggest that the company may be on track in its transition plans.

The Armonk, N.Y., company said Monday that revenue from its new “strategic imperatives” like cloud, analytics, and security increased by 12 percent year-on-year to $8.3 billion. That increase was, however, lower than the growth the company had reported in these businesses in the first quarter.

Cloud revenue — public, private and hybrid — grew 30 percent in the second quarter, while revenue from analytics grew 4 percent, revenue from mobile increased 43 percent and the security business grew 18 percent.
