Cloud Native As A Competitive Necessity

Share this post:

Moving to a cloud native model of application development is an important part of creating opportunities to continuously improve apps and effectively evolve customer experience. Cloud native app development and DevOps enable teams to:

• Rapidly add new features and capabilities
• Scale economically as user demand changes
• Improve developer productivity by reducing administration tasks
• Reduce operational costs
• Increase data security and integrity

Adopting cloud-native development can be an intimidating task, and the growing number of platforms and tools on the market you need to choose from making it even more challenging.

Introducing the IBM Cloud App Service

By integrating the right tools and platform with DevOps, IBM Cloud App Service helps kick-start your adoption of cloud native development. Consider some of the benefits of using the right tools/platform:

a) Maximize productivity with open source and polyglot programming in a proven, highly-secure environment. Developers can choose the right tools, languages, and frameworks for the job.

b) Shorten launch and update times and deliver resilient apps and microservices at internet scale with DevOps. Development teams can continuously deliver their apps in highly scalable and portable container technology.

c) Enable your teams to easily adopt new Machine Learning, Blockchain and IoT technologies that are accelerating innovation on the cloud.

IBM Cloud App Service Starter Kits

Developers are used to starting a project the inefficient way: with “sample code” that requires them to clone, create and edit configuration files to integrate to the deployment environment, manage certificates and credentials, and delete irrelevant code. The IBM Cloud App Services offers Starter Kits that remove that tedium, saving teams from days to weeks of effort.

Starter kits guide developers to select the right programming language and framework technology for their project, set up their team environment, enable toolchains for their delivery pipelines and integrate into their Cloud Foundry or Kubernetes environments on IBM Cloud Platform and IBM Cloud Private.

Starter kits also enable developers to quickly incorporate IBM Cloud services such as Watson and Blockchain through SDKs. They also include the IBM Developer Tools Command Line Interface that provides a tailored local runtime environment for development and testing, and access to their team environment.

Experience the simplicity of using IBM Cloud App Services:
