IBM last week announced new cloud services and technology offerings for clients moving key enterprise business processes into production cloud environments. IBM is building out its existing cloud portfolio with IBM SmartCloud, a solution for private, public and hybrid clouds based on IBM hardware, software, services and best practices.
As part of this announcement, IBM is demonstrating a next-generation, enterprise cloud service delivery platform currently piloting with key clients and available later this year.
For the first time, according to IBM's press release, enterprise clients will be able to select key characteristics of a public, private and hybrid cloud to match workload requirements from simple Web infrastructure to complex business processes.
“We are committed to helping clients both extend their IT investments and become leading providers of cloud-based business process services in their own industries,” said Steve Mills, senior vice president, Senior Vice President and Group Executive - Software & Systems.
“We have a track record of helping clients safely embrace and accelerate enterprise adoption of new models and technologies – from e-business to Linux and open source – and we're doing it now for cloud," Mills said.
