IBM Global Services (IGS) is returning to pre-recession growth rates as global IT services demand stabilizes. IGS’ broad portfolio of high-value, high-growth offerings and its ability to work closely with other IBM business segments have played a key role in the organization’s business expansion. IGS is optimistic about the emerging growth geographies, where it is winning new clients and growing its emerging markets backlog to 20% of total services backlog. Emerging markets offer top-line expansion and bottom-line growth opportunities, and IGS’ globally integrated business model allows it to quickly deploy expertise and capabilities. IGS’ gross margin in emerging markets was 200 basis points higher than in major markets in 2Q11.
