In these challenging times, it is more important than ever to be part of a strong partner ecosystem that is positioned for sustained growth.
In fact, Cameron Clayton, our Cloud Ecosystem General Manager, recently communicated how important our partners are to IBM in creating value for our clients. As cloud adoption continues to accelerate digital transformation for enterprise customers, our clients expect us to bring them technology that is supported by an active ecosystem—solutions that drive new opportunities for growth and innovation.
New partners certified for IBM Cloud Paks
We are pleased to announce that in the last few months, we have signed up four new partners: Sysdig, Hazelcast IMDG, Turbonomic, and RapidBIZ from Vacava. In case you’re wondering how big a deal it is for partners to be certified, the answer is, a very big deal. Partners have to complete nearly 200 linter checks and a series of architectural questions. The linter checks include data encryption in-flight and at-rest, network protection and implementation, and limit security privilege
This certification allows IBM and partners to go to market together and provide our enterprise customers a high level of confidence in the quality of the containerized software they are using.
As part of the IBM Cloud Pak® Partner Ecosystem, we can work together to help our clients accelerate their cloud journeys with the right solutions and identify joint opportunities to amplify IBM Cloud Paks with your add-on offerings. Consider the following examples:
- Sysdig Platform for IBM Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management can help extend security intelligence for Kubernetes and containers to better manage governance, risk, and performance across clusters.
- Hazelcast In-Memory Computing Platform for IBM Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management (particularly pairing Hazelcast IMDG Enterprise with IBM Cloud Paks) can provide breakthrough application speed and scale everywhere—from on-prem to the cloud to the edge.
- Turbonomic ARM for IBM Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management can simultaneously optimize application performance, policy compliance, and cost—in real time.
- RapidBIZ can simplify accessing the cloud, whether developing or using applications with standard browsers, allowing you to consolidate data and create new applications—fast.
