An open, faster, more secure way to move core business applications to any cloud
Enterprises employ cloud technologies to deliver innovation at scale and at lower cost. New services are often built natively on cloud, but can also come with risk of “vendor lock-in” and escalating cost. Existing applications can be rewritten, but rewriting thousands (if not tens of thousands) of applications from the ground up is both cost and time prohibitive, so taking steps to modernize existing applications can be an attractive approach with faster time to value. Both strategies -- building new cloud-native applications and modernizing existing applications to support cloud environments -- need to be done in an open, portable manner that helps clients improve time to value while avoiding lock-in. Containers and Kubernetes enable this by providing portability and consistency in development and operations, but developers and administrators are still required to continuously connect component layers and verify interoperabilty. In addition, collecting, integrating and analyzing data enables data engineers and scientists to help application developers infuse AI into applications; but the trick is to do this without adding complexity and cost. And, then, once applications are built and connected to data, IT operations need them to run in an environment that is high performing, scalable and reliable. Today, around 80 percent of existing enterprise workloads have not yet moved to the cloud due to these challenges and enterprises struggle with movement, connectivity and management across clouds.

To help clients move more workloads faster to cloud, IBM announces:
A family of Cloud Paks that give developers, data managers and administrators an open environment to quickly build new cloud-native applications, modernize/extend existing applications, and deploy middleware in a consistent manner across multiple clouds. Today, IBM introduces five new Cloud Paks: Cloud Pak for Applications, Cloud Pak for Data, Cloud Pak for Integration, Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management, and Cloud Pak for Automation that deliver IBM enterprise software and open source components in open and secure solutions that are easily consumable and can run anywhere.
Cloud Paks provide:
- Containerized IBM middleware and open source components.
- Consistent added capabilities for deployment, lifecycle management, and production quality of service – logging, monitoring, version upgrade and roll-back, vulnerability assessment and testing
- Certification by IBM to run on Red Hat OpenShift, providing full software stack support, and regular security, compliance and version compatibility updates
Join our webinar to know more about Cloud Paks in detail. We will able to highlight the additional value that this delivery model offers, with some background details on the underlying open technologies, for those who may be unfamiliar.
