IBM Cloud Garage Method Field Guide

Share this post:

What does it mean to behave like a startup? How can you transform your business? Field-tested answers to these questions and others are found in the IBM Cloud Garage Method Field Guide.

Presented in a fun and visual format, the Field Guide introduces the method and its related practices and architectures that you need to quickly develop quality products.

The IBM Cloud Garage Method Field Guide documents IBM’s approach to enable business, development, and operations to continuously design, deliver, and validate new function. The Garage Method documents:

  • Practices. Each practice defines an overall business transformation goal and presents achievable activities that you and your team can do to reach that goal.
  • Tools and toolchains. A toolchain is a set of tool integrations that supports development, deployment, and operations tasks. The collective power of a toolchain is greater than the sum of its individual tool integrations. The tools in the method are used by teams at IBM and IBM clients on their transformation journeys.
  • Architectures. Architectures provide a structure that you can use to integrate cloud services into your solutions. Each architecture includes speci c implementations that you can use and customize.

Theses practices, architectures, and toolchains cover the entire product lifecycle from inception through capturing and responding to customer feedback and market changes. This updated guide addresses practices divided into seven phases: Culture, Think, Code, Deliver, Run, Manage, and Learn.
