IBM launches two new services to help businesses move to the cloud
From TechCrunch - October 16, 2017

IBM today announced two new services that are meant to make it easier for businesses to move their data and applications to the cloud. The company says the IBM Cloud Migration Services and IBM Cloud Deployment Services will make it easier and more affordable to migrate their existing workloads to the public cloud.

Cloud Migration Services, as the name implies, helps businesses get ready to move to the cloud. This looks very much like a bespoke service where IBM helps you understand your existing IT infrastructure and then works with you to migrate services to the cloud.

Cloud Deployment Services is a fully managed orchestration and automation platform for building private and hybrid clouds across multiple platforms and service providers (and that includes non-IBM products). At the core of this is the ability to model (or blueprint, as Big Blue likes to call it) infrastructure and application solutions and make these patterns repeatable to automate the infrastructure, as well as middleware builds and operations.

In addition to providing companies with a significantly less expensive and faster way to orchestrate workloads across various cloud delivery models,IBMCloud Deployment Services also provides next gen automation with its niche patterns and workflows,IBMs CTO and VP of Global Technology Services Bridget Karlin tells us. This helps reduce the service provisioning time and drastically reduces the design, build, deployment and testing efforts.
