So my boss really loves the look of IBM's website.

http://www.ibm.com/us/en/

and wants to include these rotating sliders in our design but I want to be clear on the best practive from a UI perspective. She is proposing 4 or 5 main features and I don't think that works.

Plus, having scrolling sliders (on the bottom too) like IBMS does just seems like overkill. Thoughts? Is this overkill?
