The February 19th Telarus Tuesday call brought channels manager, Phillip Hall to discuss the projected market spend on cloud services and the IBM Cloud Platform. The entire recording can be found here.

Why IBM Cloud?

The IBM Cloud Market team did some research to quantify the projected customer spend in the coming years, and it is significant.  Of the projected $1.7T spend in 2020, approximately $1T will be on cloud projects. One area that jumps out is that only 20 percent of client workloads have migrated to cloud; this means there is a significant window of opportunity.  Clients have only just begun their transformation into the cloud.

IBM Cloud is a full-stack cloud platform that spans public, private and hybrid environments. With IBM Cloud you can build with a robust suite of advanced data and AI tools, and draw on deep industry expertise to help you on your journey to the cloud.

  • Designed for your data – Take advantage of the broadest range of relational to NoSOL databases while ensuring consistency, integrity, and performance.
  • AI Ready – Combine high-performance infrastructure with a broad range of Watson and machine learning APIs to build your own applications.

You might be asking, what makes IBM different from the other vendors in the market place? IBM has transformed its cloud approach to provide value or help any customer at any stage in their cloud transformation. They provide Hybrid solutions that allow customers to leverage Public/Private and traditional environments (on-premise), which is where most of the customers currently are located.
