Yes, it’s a cliché, but it’s true: Time flies when you’ve having fun. And it’s been fun blogging on Bluemix for the last two years—and it’s about to get funner. 🙂
For those of you new to the blog, a short history: The Bluemix blog started in the spring of 2014, sharing news, how-tos, event reports, and announcements. Last year we celebrated Bluemix’s official one-year anniversary and less formal birthday celebration that included a memorable cake-related selfie:
Robert LeBlanc’s challenge at InterConnect 2016’s opening general session really set the tone for the rest of this year when he asked “The cloud isn’t the destination, it’s the platform. How are you going to innovate?”
At IBM and the industry at large, the consensus about cloud platforms had moved from a question of “if” to simply a question of “when”.
As part of this developing story, IBM has rolled out new services and offerings, reflecting the company and our customers’ vision of cloud computing’s ability to weave together IT services, infrastructure and data as a means of rapidly bringing ideas into production. One small reflection of this recognized importance of the Bluemix message to our customers is a refresh of this blog’s look and its move to the top-level ibm.com domain.
This move begins October 12th and will be complete by the end of the week. During this time, blog comments will be suspended and the publication pace will be reduced. Once the migration is complete, we’ll catch up on the backlog. Your patience during the migration process is appreciated.
