Developers no longer have to be worry about long hours spent installing software or having to deal with virtual machine images or hardware.

This translates into savings of countless hours of setting up, configuring, and troubleshooting into time spent innovating and getting products to market in days and not months.
Bluemix is an implementation of IBM's Open Cloud Architecture , based on Cloud Foundry that enables you to rapidly create, deploy, and manage your cloud applications. Cloud Foundry is an open source cloud platform as a service (PaaS) on which developers can build, deploy, run and scale applications on public and private cloud models.
As Bluemix is based on Cloud Foundry, developers can tap into a growing ecosystem of runtime frameworks and services. In addition to providing additional frameworks and services, Bluemix provides a dashboard for developers to create, view, and manage their applications and services as well as monitor their application's resource usage. The Bluemix dashboard also provides the ability to manage organisations, spaces, and user access.
Bluemix provides access to the services delivered through Cloud Foundry and enhances the collection of services. It delivers basic and enterprise-level services that enterprise organisations need to make their cloud applications ready and available to their customers when they need it and where they need. Because of its underlying open source technologies, Bluemix provides the flexibility to integrate the development frameworks and services that suit your needs.
