Introduces New Tools for Developers
IBM continues to build on its cloud service and added another layer to the more than 25 services now available.
The biggest news is the addition of analytic tools which will enable developers to track and monitor Web and mobile applications. The tools can be used across multiple cloud platforms and give insight where it had been lacking.
“Data is the common thread within the enterprise, regardless of where its source might be. In the past, data handlers have relied on disparate systems for data needs, but our goal is to move data into the future by providing a one-stop shop to access, build, develop and explore data,” stated analytics platform and cloud data services general manager Derek Schoettle in a press release.
“IBM’s integrated Cloud Data Services give developers greater scalability and flexibility to build, deploy and manage web and mobile cloud applications, and enable data scientists to apply information across businesses efficiently.”
The new services include a managed platform designed to help development teams build modern Web-scale apps faster by enabling them to deploy business-ready open source databases in minutes on their own dedicated cloud servers and the first fully managed graph database service providing developers a complete stack to extend business-ready apps with real-time recommendations, fraud detection, IoT and network analysis uses.
These new tools further complement IBM’s mission to provide enterprise class support for open source developers and data handlers of any level.
