This is the last of three parts on preparing and deploying an MVP application
In Part 1 of this series we described the IBM Bluemix Garage’s approach to building a Cloud Foundry application and introduced the top ten steps to consider in an MVP Build-Up to ensure the application is production-ready.Below we elaborate and provide practical guidance on the basic steps to consider putting in place to establish a good foundation in preparation to going into production.
This is the first of three blog posts describing how the IBM Bluemix Garage helps clients successfully deploy and manage their first application on IBM Bluemix.
In the IBM Bluemix Garage, many things change day to day: the companies that come into our Garage locations, the innovative ideas that we are working on, developing, and testing, and so much more that goes on behind the scenes. As Savannah, one of our veteran developers in our San Francisco Garage once wrote, “To stay relevant, businesses,” including ours, “must learn how to keep up with the rapid growth of technology.” The Garages started with building apps on Bluemix, and since the beginning we have been expanding our scope, skills, and pulling in expertise from across IBM. We have expanded to focus on IoT, cognitive, and APIs. Our most well-known expansion is our extensive work on blockchain. Today I am pleased to announce that we are expanding and formalizing our focus on data science insights and analytics.
You don’t need to start with a blank sheet of paper. Based on years of consulting engagements, the IBM Cloud Garage Method distills a portfolio of practices and provides blueprints that address business challenges. The blueprints, or reference architectures, are based on proven solutions that combine compute infrastructure and cloud-based services. Here's how you get started.
Are you interested in deploying microservice apps to the cloud? After you deploy your app to the cloud, do you want to use sophisticated tools to monitor, control, and interpret the results of your deployments? You can use the IBM®Bluemix® Continuous Delivery and IBM Cloud DevOps Insights services to manage and deploy microservice apps. To learn how, try the Create and use a microservices toolchain with DevOps Insights (v2) tutorial on the IBM Cloud Garage Method website.

We know there are tons of sessions to pick from at InterConnect 2017. To help narrow down your choices, we've created five must-see, can't-miss, once-in-a-lifetime InterConnect sessions from the IBM Bluemix Garage.
At InterConnect 2017, several sessions explain how the IBM Cloud Garage Method enables transformation by incorporating design thinking, Lean, agile, and DevOps practices. Teams follow the practices while they learn new technologies, such as Cognitive and Internet of Things (IoT). They can start deploying to the cloud in minutes and continue to iterate capabilities while they follow reference architectures to meet enterprise scale. Toolchains enable this process, while integrated tools support the team
