Explore how you can modernize with a hybrid, multicloud foundation. It's a fully modular and easy-to-consume pricing approach, so you only pay for what you need.

The portability to deploy virtually anywhere, anytime

Capabilities from IBM Cloud Pak® for Applications run on premises, on private and public clouds, and in preintegrated systems. They work wherever Red Hat® OpenShift® runs and are optimized for productivity and performance on Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud®. Each IBM Cloud Pak includes containerized IBM middleware and common software services for development and management, on top of a common integration layer.

Reuse existing investments

Because IBM Cloud Pak capabilities can run on any infrastructure, there's no need to pay for extra investments you don't need. Use your existing investments or try one of our trade-up programs to reuse existing capital expenditures for a potentially lower total cost of ownership. You also get simplified billing, reporting and management.

Modernize at your own pace

Refactor existing apps, build new cloud native apps and keep existing apps running, all in one place. Everything comes preintegrated so you can use capabilities and relocate entitlements as your transformation accelerates and your needs grow. Container platform and operational services include logging, monitoring, security and identity access management. Each capability is IBM certified and comes with full software stack support and ongoing security, compliance and version compatibility.
