It’s been a tough year for Ginni Rometty. The CEO and long time IBMer has been trying to “transform” the information technology giant since she took the top job in 2012. But the company’s revenue has been in perpetual decline, falling from $107 billion in 2011 to $93 billion in 2014. Rometty has made some bold moves, shedding profit-losing businesses and investing in more innovative initiatives like cognitive computing, cloud-based data centers and partnerships with the likes of Apple and Twitter. Newer technologies (cloud, analytics, mobile, social and security) generated some $25 billion in 2014, representing 27% of IBM’s total revenue. Rometty’s mandate to keep that number—and IBM’s relevancy—growing is no easy feat.
