IBM announces cloud service marketplace

Posted Apr 28, 2014

At the Impact Conference in Las Vegas, IBM has announced a new cloud marketplace, which will be a central location to shop for IBM cloud services and from third-party partners. IBM has been building up its cloud services over the past several years.

IBM used Softlayer for infrastructure and BlueMix for development. It has over 100 cloud-based software services including Silverpop and Cloudant. You will be able to explore the cloud marketplace in a similar way as you would look through’s App Exchange.

This is a different way of doing business for IBM because they generally use a more traditional sales channel.
