In 2017—the fiftieth anniversary of Star Trek—the dream of standing on the bridge of the USS Enterprise is one step closer to becoming reality, all thanks to IBM Watson! I sat down with Michael Ludden to talk all about how Watson is powering Ubisoft's incredible virtual reality game: Star Trek Bridge Crew.
IBM Globalization Pipeline for Bluemix is a Devops service. It enables application developers to globalize their content using cloud based machine translation, combined with professional translation review and editing. In this blog, we'll review how to integrate Globalization Pipeline into DevOps to rapidly translate application content without stepping outside Bluemix and having to manage tedious manual translation operations which disrupt Continuous Delivery.
If you have been using a SonarQube server for your code quality/code coverage, you can now use it from within your toolchain in Bluemix Continuous Delivery. The SonarQube integration includes direct support for Gradle and Maven, but can also be used with Ant. This post explains how.
IBM Watson Machine Learning is a managed-service that helps data scientists and developers work together to integrate predictive analytics into their applications. Through integration with IBM SPSS Modeler and IBM Data Science Experience, data scientists can train and build models while developers can deploy those models to generate predictions for machine learning powered applications.
We released updates to our current block and file storage architecture—featuring quick and easy volume duplication (cloning) from existing volumes.
With many traditional workloads moving to cloud-based infrastructures, now is the perfect time to assess your existing Java-based workloads and migrate them to WebSphere Application Server on IBM Bluemix. More commonly known as “WAS on Cloud”, this service provides a fully-configured, turn-key WebSphere-based application environment, supporting both Traditional WAS and Liberty applications. You use your same tried & true wsadmin automation scripts, same CI/CD techniques, but just point them at Bluemix instead of your own infrastructure! This post summarizes the steps from WAS to the cloud.
The OpenWhisk CLI commands for API Gateway functionality labeled "wsk api-experimental" have been replaced with the new command "wsk api".
Do you have an existing Rational Team Concert server that you use for tracking and planning? You can now integrate this server in IBM Bluemix Continuous Delivery. This integration not only adds a card to your toolchain for quick access to your work items, it also adds tags to the work items that have been deployed. Such tags allow you to run powerful queries for tracking deployment of code changes as well as build useful dashboards.
The benefits of a microservices architecture come with a price. The service management solution must deal with the architecture’s inherent dynamics, dependencies, and complexities to ensure that the application is available and performing. Ignoring these considerations could result in the microservice-based applications might behave worse than a monolithic application that was built in the traditional fashion. The principles of managing microservices explained in this post will help you avoid these pitfalls.
