Yes, says IBM while rolling out its commercial cloud services for the enterprise, today (June 16). The IBM Smart Business cloud portfolio is supposed to help user companies turn complex business processes into simple services.
It promises to bring automation technology and self-service to specific digital tasks including software development and testing; desktop and device management; and collaboration.
The IBM offer includes three ways to deploy the cloud model:
- Smart Business standardized services on the IBM Cloud;
- Smart Business private cloud services behind the firewall built by IBM (run by IBM or the client);
- IBM CloudBurst service delivery platform, for clients who want to build their own cloud with pre-integrated hardware and software.
