Instead of only managing projects, organizations do need to manage value! "Doing the right things" and "doing things right" are the essential ingredients for successful software and systems delivery. Unfortunately, with distributed delivery spanning multiple disciplines, geographies and time zones, many organizations struggle with teams working in silos, broken lines of communication, lack of collaboration, inadequate traceability, and poor project visibility. This often results in organizations "doing the wrong things" and "doing things wrong", with associated higher costs, project delays and lower quality.
IBM's new Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, IBM Bluemix, delivers the speed and flexibility of the cloud to allow developers to more quickly compose and build enterprise-grade applications for by providing access to IBM's vast software portfolio as composable services. This powerful PaaS/services combination, built on open standards and taking advantage of Cloud Foundry, enables developers to avoid vendor lock-in while leveraging their existing application development assets and skills, which is essential for building hybrid clouds. IBM is providing developers an open, flexible cloud environment connecting the enterprise and born-on-the-web developers using their choice of tools, whether IBM, third-party, or open technologies, in a scalable environment.This session provides an overview of IBM Bluemix capabilities.
IBM DevOps for Bluemix provides an integrated set of DevOps services in the IBM Bluemix PaaS, for individuals and teams building mobile and cloud applications (Ďsystems of engagementí) that enable teams to shrink the application delivery cycle time, and consistently deliver software with speed, quality and accuracy. This session provides an overview of IBM DevOps services on Bluemix, focusing on quickly getting started with new projects and collaborative development with agile tracking and planning.
