Report: IBM public cloud empowers developers

Share this post:

global-public-cloud-report-500x223The latest edition of Forrester Research’s Forrester Wave report which evaluates global public cloud platforms characterized IBM as a “strong performer” in public cloud.

IBM earned “the highest possible score for its private and hybrid cloud strategy as well as the top ranking for IBM’s infrastructure services,” eWeek reports. Forrester’s study used 34 evaluation criteria to evaluate eight global cloud platform service providers.

In particular, IBM empowers enterprise developers with the tools they need to build applications, Forrester’s report contends. It cites “platform configuration options, app migration services, cognitive analytics services, security and compliance certifications, complex networking support, growing partner roster and native DevOps tools” as strengths.

In a statement, Bill Karpovich, general manager of the IBM Cloud Platform, said:

We believe being recognized as a strong performer in Forrester’s latest Wave report reinforces what we hear from our clients every day—that cloud is not ‘one size fits all.’ Enterprises require choice and expertise to evolve their diverse application portfolios, and IBM Cloud was designed to deliver on those core tenets.
