IBM's revenue 2011-2018, by region

IBM's global revenue from 2011 to 2018, by geographic region (in billion U.S. dollars)

IBM's revenue 2011-2018, by region The Americas region is IBM’s greatest source of revenue. In 2018, IBM generated almost 37 billion U.S. dollars in the region, almost 50 percent of the company’s overall revenue. Since 2011 IBM has experienced declining revenues leveling out at 79 billion U.S. dollars in 2018, and is facing the challenge to acclimate to changing industry trends.
IBM’s investments in the future

As many other companies in the tech industry, IBM is in a period of transition from a legacy business in the technology sector to adapting its product offerings for a changing industry. It is regaining ground from under investing in cloud services and applications by purchasing and investing in innovative companies in the field and also refocusing its own research and development expenses on new and emerging products and technologies. IBM is for example set to close the purchase of the enterprise software company Red Hat, the world’s largest provider of open-source software solutions, in 2019 for 34 billion U.S. dollars. Much of IBM’s research and development is in the direction of hybrid cloud, blockchain, quantum computing, and AI, in hopes to kick start growth and reverse the trend of declining revenues. Of these, quantum computing is a promising way for IBM to be at the forefront of the world’s fastest and most powerful computing devices.
