IBM has debuted an online channel that will showcase a range of cloud computing software and service offerings from the company, its partners and third-party vendors.
The IBM Cloud Marketplace allows enterprise clients to select from hundreds of software-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service platforms, IBM said Monday.
“Increasingly cloud users from business, IT and development across the enterprise are looking for easy access to a wide range of services to address new business models and shifting market conditions,” said Robert LeBlanc, senior vice president of IBM’s software and cloud solutions business.
LeBlanc added that the marketplace includes cloud-based big data, analytics, security, mobile and social applications.
IBM cloud partners include SendGrid, Redis Labs, Flow Search Corp., Deep DB and Zend.
The company seeks to help organizations create and implement business apps by leveraging application protocol interfaces in the digital shop.
IBM’s Cloud Marketplace also offers more than 100 SaaS tools that are built to manage procurement, sales and marketing, customer service, finance and supply chain functions.
