Capitalizing on the "International" part of the company's name, IBM's focus on overseas business helped boost 2007 numbers. IBM generated 63% of its revenue from overseas sales last year, helping it overcome U.S. economic woes.

Adding to lucrative businesses in China and India, the tech giant announced in December that it would build a research and innovation center in Johannesburg with the intention of tapping into the quickly developing market on the African continent.
