IBM is leading the pack in developing cloud patents, according to a recent piece in Computerworld. But is the outlook sunny?
IBM is touting its fat IP portfolio, indeed. That’s (count ‘em) 7,534 patents in 2014 alone. Microsoft won 2,829 in the same period, Amazon 745. But IBM is getting flattened in the market right now, after being a market darling between about 2004 and 2011 or so.
