IBM has announced its Hybrid Cloud Build Team to support the migration and modernization of ecosystem partner products, services, and other offerings across open hybrid cloud environments.
Part of IBM’s $1B investment in its ecosystem, the Hybrid Cloud Build Team helps bring the best ideas from partners to market through deep design engagement models like IBM Garage and IBM’s design thinking methodology.
The team, which is expected to grow to more than 200 members in 2021, has already participated in over 75 engagements, helping guide partners through strategic, technical and operational considerations to migrate to and build on hybrid cloud environments.
In addition to LTI, some of the partners the Build Team has worked with include CitiusTech, Cylera, Intellect Design Arena (case study), KPMG LLP (Canada), Liferay (case study), and Pearlchain (case study).
The elite engagement team consists of over 100 cloud architects, data scientists, cloud developers, security specialists, and developer advocates who work on the agile co-creation of advanced technology solutions for partners and their clients.
The team also advises partners how best to accelerate the transition of their products, services and other offerings to open hybrid cloud environments.
IBM offers the Hybrid Cloud Build Team to ecosystem partners at no charge, with typical engagements lasting between five and 20 weeks to create an application MVP or prototype.
