Cloud Success Story: Gliding Eagle

Share this post:

Cloud is synonymous with innovation.

In the early days of cloud, it was a tactical decision for businesses to migrate workloads and processes. Businesses wanted to recalibrate IT spending, so they kicked a few servers out from under their desks and started storing some data with a cloud provider.

My, how things have changed.

Cloud is now a strategic decision. Business models, industries, and clients are changing at an unprecedented pace. Cloud is becoming a necessity as a means to innovate and a standard to keep up with competitors.

Data and other nascent technologies such as IoT and cognition are accentuating the adoption of cloud, driven by inherent properties such as scale and bringing experiences closer to end users.

Gliding Eagle is a startup that epitomizes cloud adoption as means of defining new experiences. Cross continental trade requires product integrity. Gliding Eagle provides an authentic experience between consumers in China and wineries in Napa Valley by harnessing data with IBM’s cloud. Each item in an order is tracked, from manufacturer to consumer, to ensure an end-to-end transparent experience.

By leveraging IBM’s cloud, Gliding Eagle is able to run all workloads in the cloud, allowing them to rapidly create value for end users.
