While IBM is certainly a tech giant by today’s standards, it isn’t the industry leader it once was in the eyes of many. While the company has been around since 1911 – showing that it is certainly doing many things right – IBM has lost some of its perceived sparkle, but it is working on getting it back.

At one point, the company was also a leader in artificial intelligence (AI), though many newcomers later took over the spotlight, unseating the amazing development that was Watson.
