IBM's Cloud Technology is a core part of our company's strategy. We help companies build full-stack applications leveraging a microservices architecture on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform – an enterprise Kubernetes environment. IBM is trailblazing new technology platform and services, DevOps, business models, developer outreach, and with the creation of the IBM Garage.
The IBM Garage is an “Innovation and Transformation” consultancy located in the heart of the start-up community. Our design first organization applies IBM Design Thinking, Agile, DevOps, and Lean User Experience (UX) techniques to help our clients, large and small, deliver amazing experiences to their customers by helping them identify and build innovative applications on IBM and Red Hat’s next generation open hybrid cloud platform. Our fast paced, collaborative, and co-located teams make the IBM Garage the most exciting place to be.
Our clients who choose IBM Cloud are looking for innovation and agility in how apps are defined, designed, and developed. The notion of the IBM Garage was born out of the changes on how we work with our customers. This is a distinctively new approach to app development - a 180-degree shift from the way that IBM does client engagements. We are bringing clients into the IBM Garage; where we are using IBM Design Thinking which will lead to a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) definition for the application that will adopt agile practices for developing quality apps rapidly.
