Bluemix gave us a platform where we could deploy the code, try it out, experiment with it, and then push it out to all the contract companies.

Business Challenge story

DTE Energy utilizes a number of outside contractors for services related to delivering power to Detroit’s neighborhoods and businesses. This requires that those contractors be able to access accurate and actionable information in the field.


DTE deployed IBM MobileFirst technologies to jumpstart its mobile development and streamline the creation and cross-integration of multiple applications. The organization uses the IBM Bluemix cloud platform to quickly develop, test and deploy new code to the mobile apps.


DTE Energy can now gather more information and faster insights pertaining to third-party contractors and their activities and performance, thus improving service to its constituents.
