IBM and AT&T (T) are partnering to offer a solution that includes the former's cloud storage and IT services, and the latter's telecom network. Bloomberg calls the deal the "closest relationship" IBM, whose offerings sometimes compete with the value-added services provided by telcos, has ever formed with a phone carrier. Cloud storage spending is taking off, and IBM is hoping to generate $7B in cloud-related revenue in 2015.
