This includes spinning off printer manufacturer Lexmark in 1991 and selling off its personal computer (thinkPad/ThinkCentre) and x86-based server businesses to Lenovo (2005 and 2014, respectively), and acquiring companies such as PwC Consulting (2002), SPSS (2009), and The Weather Company(2016). Also in 2014, IBM announced that it would go "fabless", continuing to design semiconductors, but offloading manufacturing to GlobalFoundries.

Paythru

Paythru was founded at the end of 2009 with the vision of becoming a market leader in on-line payments with a particular emphasis on the mobile phone.

Their philosophy has always been "payments is not enough" – to optimise the consumers' inexorable demand to use their mobile phone to shop and transact, Paythru has pioneered the development of added value applications to assist merchants in using the on-line and mobile channels effectively and compliantly.

They have focused effort on the sectors where we believe mobile payments will be adopted the fastest and where there is clear consumer benefit – such as easier ways to pay for your parking, paying bills and pre-ordering at retailers. We also ventured to South Africa in 2010 to gain a better understanding of what a truly mobile based society would look like and we are now supporting many of the top on-line retailers with the majority of transactions coming via the mobile.

2016 saw Paythru achieve PCI DSS Level 1 compliance for the 6th year underlining their commitment to the security and integrity of their clients' and their customers' data.
