Well, somebody has to be the cloud computing leader. Is it IBM? Judge for yourself.
The newly announced IBM SmartCloud services and capabilities make it clear that IBM has hit its stride in the cloud space. (We've been hard at work with cloud for nearly five years.) More importantly, IBM SmartCloud empowers you to make the most of this revolutionary new model for using and delivering IT and business services. As you'll see, IBM is rolling out a broad range of enhancements to its existing cloud portfolio, including an enterprise-grade platform as a service, entry-level capabilities for rapid private cloud deployment, new industry-specific cloud services, and a more robust ecosystem of IBM cloud partners. Security? Yep, we've got that covered, plus a whole lot more. Visit the IBM SmartCloud overview page for the whole story -- including examples of other successful IBM Cloud deployments -- and tune in to this videocast for a multimedia overview of what it all means for you.
I'm not saying IBM is the cloud authority. That would be bragging. You can draw your own conclusions.
