The Cloud Garage is a new and innovative approach to driving customer application development success on IBM Bluemix PaaS and IBM Cloud platform at an accelerated pace. The Cloud Garage is a very different environment that is typically located at startup communities. It is an open work environment with latest Mac pairing stations, soon to be enclosed area with glass walls and 20 foot ceilings, snacks, lots of techie & networking events, and by the end of the year a great coffee shop in the building.
We are bringing clients into the Garage to rapidly develop minimal viable products using IBM Design Thinking to get the product definition correct and adopting agile practices for developing the apps. Our clients choosing Bluemix and the IBM Cloud platform are looking for innovation and agility in how apps are defined, designed, and developed.
