IBM (IBM -2.32%)is moving into new territory after acquiring Kenexa in a $1.3 billion cash deal. Traditionally, IBM has focused on infrastructure as opposed to software systems, so we now see the company expanding beyond its strategic three-pronged business model, which not only will help add to its already high annual profit growth of 19% but also affirm its position as a powerhouse in the tech arena.
