IBM Rolls Out Mobile-Computing Program For Businesses

IBM, seeking to capitalize on the shift to mobile computing, on Thursday unveiled a broad, new "MobileFirst" initiative to sell businesses tools to create apps, analyze data, provide security and manage devices.

The program, based on 10 mobile-related acquisitions in the past four years and a broad portfolio of patents in wireless technology, is designed to provide companies with an end-to-end integrated solution for mobile business.
