IBM® Content Services intends to bring its content services platform, known for robust governance, enterprise scalability, and high performance, to Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a multitenant, software as a service offering. Organizations will be able to take advantage of IBM's content services without additional expenditures on IT infrastructure or IT staff to run and manage the cloud service.

IBM's content services platform provides organizations with the ability to securely manage the content lifecycle from capture to archive. It enables users to collaborate and quickly find the information that they need to complete their work. IBM intends to offer core content services capabilities, including archiving, searching, and collaborating on AWS's modern cloud infrastructure as a preconfigured solution.

Proposed capabilities of Content Services include the following:

  • Speed time to value with a ready-to-use, preconfigured solution that requires no setup or customization
  • Archive content for long-term governance to meet internal and regulatory requirements in addition to long-term, secure access
  • Apply simple or complex searches to quickly find content that users need
  • Utilize the modern GraphQL APIs, an open source data query and manipulation language for APIs, for simplified application development
  • Have immediate access to the latest features and functions of content services without expending time and resources to plan and perform product upgrades
