This week IBM plans to give the world a sneak peak at its latest public and private IBM SmartCloud services and software. It’s porting SAP, ERP and all database applications to it. And claims new technologies will be available to deploy and manage a private cloud 35x faster than existing offerings with support for image management and rapid provisioning. The company did not share numbers on this, so 35x faster doesn’t mean much, yet.
It also said it will be the first enterprise Cloud open to more than 130,000 software vendors, business
partners and value-added resellers — building and selling key applications in supply chain, healthcare and smarter commerce.
Taken together, IBM claimed more than 200 million users will be using IBM’s SmartCloud technology daily.
Stay tuned for more details.
