Bluemix is the open cloud platform of IBM that provides developers complete access to all the software of IBM and associated business partners. Through Bluemix they can integrate, consolidate and perform many key functions on their applications with enhanced security.
Through Bluemix, IBM intends to simplify the process of application delivery by offering various services which handle immediate deployment and hosting. This means that now a mobile or web application developer wouldn’t have to worry about the infrastructure to host his application and can concentrate more on the application design. Here is our take on IBM Bluemix starting from its background.
