IBM has "reassigned" Rodney Adkins, until now the head of its hardware and chip ops, following a dismal Q1 for the business, the WSJ reports. Tom Rosamilia, IBM's VP of corporate strategy and GM of enterprise initiatives, is said to have replaced him. Adkins' division saw a 17% Y/Y sales drop in Q1, headlined by a 32% drop in high-end Power server sales. Big Blue blamed the weakness on execution, but many suspect IT demand and/or industry trends are also responsible. The WSJ's scoop follows multiple reports claiming IBM's x86 server unit (-9% in Q1) is on sale.
