English term or phrase: the sum of IBM is greater than the sum of the parts
There are also concerns that IBM continues to stay in markets (such as PCs) where it is evidently a second-string player. IBM would reply that it needs to be broadly based in order to offer a one-stop shop for solutions, and therefore that the sum of IBM (because of synergies between business units) is greater than the sum of the parts.

[la compañía] IBM, en su totalidad, va más allá de sus componentes indivuduales
Explanation:
....therefore that the sum of IBM (because of synergies between business units) is greater than the sum of its parts.

...por ende, [la compañía] IBM, en su totalidad, va más allá de sus componentes indivuduales (debido a la interrelación [NOTE: o sinergia, si prefieres] existente entre las diversas unidades empresariales)

Explanation:
El texto se refiere a la importancia que tiene la compañía más allá del valor específico de sus diversas unidades de negocio, por lo que te sugiero la siguiente traducción:
El valor de la propuesta comercial de IBM en su conjunto, está por encima del valor específico de la suma de sus partes.
Espero te sirva. Suerte!
