Michael Sampson - Currents

The following is lifted from an internal working paper doing a 7 Pillars analysis of IBM: " IBM offers a tremendous range of technical capabilities to support shared access to team data that is stored in its products.

Between the two programs, they can turn a reproducible analysis into your favorite publication format: PDF, ODT, HTML, or DOC(X).
