    I hope you're ready to help us innovate Cloud Pak for Data! Be sure to keep an eye out for our posts later today.
    IBM has been around a long time! Let's test your IBM knowledge with some trivia. 
    🎟  For 1 raffle entry, tell us your theory about why IBM is also known as "Big Blue." 
    I would say no cheating, but I think the Internet could probably help you find some interesting reasons!

    Not sure if it is something to do with the blue suits people were wearing in office?

    The blue logo? 

    No relation to the other "big blue," Michigan :)

    Maybe due to the mainly blue front doors of the old systems (which I just confirmed via some Google search, TBH).
    but surely not due to the famous and official "IBM Cheese Cutter", which is on display at some IBM facility.

    No idea but I have always associated IBM with Blue.. Brain is represented by blue color. May be something to do with that ;)
