IBM to cut 3,900 jobs, targeting healthcare and IT business units

Global technology company IBM announced plans to lay off 3,900 employees, or 1.4 percent of its workforce, in its IT services business and healthcare business unit, The Wall Street Journal reported Jan. 26. 

The layoffs at Watson Health come a year after IBM sold data and assets of the healthcare business unit to an investment firm as part of an effort to streamline operations.

IT services spinoff Kyndryl Holdings, the other unit cutting jobs, posted flat sales in the fourth quarter. 

The moves come as the company looks to highlight its cloud offerings; IBM reported an 11 percent increase in cloud revenue in 2022.
