jStart, IBM Emerging Technology's client engagement team: developing emerging technologies solutions to address immediate business needs...your solution starts here.
The cloud. We all know about its potential, we are increasingly using cloud applications on a daily basis. Entire businesses have been built around the promise of the cloud. From SaaS to IaaS to PaaS, the cloud has been maturing for the enterprise. But what is on the horizon for cloud technologies? What business factors are driving the evolution of the cloud? Recently, IBM has launched efforts to address the future of the cloud--and IBM Emerging Technologies has been at the forefront of those efforts.
As part of the Emerging Technologies Group, jStart has been involved in working directly with clients as we have been exploring and validating new technologies. The business drivers we've witnessed? At the forefront: time to value, followed closely by the flexibility the cloud provides. Other items of concern: a lack of internal technical resources, desire to keep a handle on costs by embracing a pay-as-you-go model that cloud applications provide. And the work continues. And jStart is leading the effort. The team is actively engaging proof of concept engagements exploring these new technologies.
