IBM is reportedly reassigning a third of the staff in one of its global businesses

  • IBM plans to reassign up to 30 percent of staff in its 103,000 computer service delivery business.
  • IBM beat expectations for revenue in its last quarterly results in October after 22 straight quarters of declines.

IBM plans to reassign up to 30 percent of staff in its 103,000 computer service delivery business this year with job losses through attrition of around 10,000, technology website The Register reported on Thursday, citing unnamed company insiders.

The news site published a slide it said was from an IBM internal presentation, which showed 10,100 jobs classified as "attrition w/o backfill."

IBM, one of the world's original PC producers but now a broad-based producer, integrator and software maker, beat expectations for revenue in its last quarterly results in October after 22 straight quarters of declines.

Spokesmen for IBM declined to make any immediate comment.

Correction: An earlier version of this story misstated the number of workers that would be reassigned.
