Re: weather
I think it's important to always keep the consumers in the front of the minds of the businesses. Because after all, it is the people that keep the companies going.

IBM Beefs Up IoT With Weather Company Deal
This is hard to see tha it beefs up with weather copany but it can be a very good thing to work with some kind of partnership with each other and can lead to very big future plans. It can also be a game changer with 2 ideas into one big one.

Re: weather
Yeah I'm sure the debate wasn't easy either, but I'm happy to see these two companies come together. Especially when I think it is in the best interest for the consumers.

Both IBM and the Weather Company were obviously, I'm sure, looking for new ways to pull in the consumers, but also I think it works out well in the costumers favor. That's what's really important.

Re: weather
dir5288, I would imagine you are right about the "debate" that probably took place.  It is not easy to make those changes and move new directions.

I fully see your point and agree that the consumer-directed services is truly representing a new frontier.

Re: weather
That's a great point. Also yes weather does affect everyone, from businesses to individuals. That's why I think IBM decided to join up with the Weather Company. It affects so many things and people that I think consumers might be interested in the teaming up of the two partys.

It will be interesting to see how it turns out and if it actually was the best decision for IBM. Personally, I think it will turn out great, but there's always the possibilty that it can go very wrong.

Re: weather
dlr5288, I had not considered the business side of weather either. However, when performing a SWOT analysis weather and natural disasters can be a threat to a business and are part of a disastery recovery plan.

Weather affects everything we do and affect everyone from businesses to individuals - children to adults and those with health issues. It seems like smart move. After thinking about it I guess it makes sense to buy the company although the purchase price seems too high for the assets IBM will be getting. IBM will be able to capitalize on their cloud technology and gain new customers which will increase revenue for IBM.

Re: weather
Yes, thank you. I just know how often I use it and how much other consumers do as well. I think honesly that it wold help both sides o team up and I think it's a great idea overall. Probably some hard decisions and clashes were made, but I think in the long run it's a great idea for both sides.

Re: weather
dir5288, I had not considered the consumer side with the weather as an added market, but you are absolutely correct.  Moving into services for the consumer opens up great opportunities, particularly with IoT, etc.  Great thought!
