We spoke to Karthik Padmanabhan, IBM to understand the company’s latest BlueMix PaaS and how it simplifies the whole business of developing apps for the cloud. For the uninitiated, here’s a brief recap of BlueMix as provided by IBM:

BlueMix is an open-standards, cloud-based platform for building, managing and running apps of all types (web, mobile, big data, new smart devices). Capabilities include Java, mobile backend development, application monitoring, as well as capabilities from ecosystem partners and open source – all through an as-a-service model in the cloud.

The cloud applications built on Bluemix intend to:

Reduce time for application/infrastructure provisioning
Allow for flexible capacity
Help to address any lack of internal tech resources
Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Accelerate exploration of new workloads – social, mobile, big data

Enabling the transition

Part of any open cloud environment deployment includes cloud workloads and capabilities that are available within the cloud. IBM has been working to enable key functionality in the cloud based on early customer engagements as well as input from developers.
Bluemix: Making a difference in the cloud

When IBM envisioned Bluemix, we envisioned a system which would answer the needs and challenges facing developers while at the same time empowering and enabling businesses to leverage their resources in the most efficient way possible. And we wanted to create a system that could do this in concrete ways.
