IBM Hits a Home Run

IBM hit a home run this week with a stellar second quarter earnings report.

And major league baseball hit a home run of its own with the announcement that it will be using WebSphere Portal software from IBM to improve the authentication process for memorable home runs.

Just imagine if that technology had been in place for some of MLB’s most famous home runs, such as Babe Ruth’s 60th in 1927, Roger Maris’ 61st in 1961 or Bill Mazeroski’s home run that beat the mighty Yankees in the 1960 World Series.

No truth to the rumor that IBM now stands for International Baseball Machines.
