GBS reported growth of 4.1% in 4Q18 as IBM Services’ technical and industry expertise resonate well with clients, transitioning its pipeline to revenue growth. GTS revenue declined 3.8% during the quarter, following declines in technical support services, offsetting growth from IBM Cloud Private adoption. — Kelly Lesiczka, Research Analyst
