The platform for public, private and hybrid applications: IBM Cloud.
IBM Cloud™ was designed to support the full range of applications: from modern, cloud-native apps and microservices to legacy, monolithic software and systems. Companies that choose IBM Cloud have the infrastructure they need to build new applications from scratch, modernise existing applications, or both.
As mentioned in part one of this series, our strong partnership with IBM Cloud has allowed partners to provide scalable and flexible infrastructure solutions to their customers. Partners can either build new applications from scratch, modernise existing applications, or both. It’s an open platform where you can integrate solutions and accelerate the development and deployment of hybrid applications.
