IBM, Tech Mahindra in hybrid cloud pact
Tech giant IBM on Tuesday said that it has signed an agreement with IT services major Tech Mahindra to build a platform for the development of cloud-based apps for its clients on Bluemix to increase hybrid services adoption.

The alliance between IBM and Tech Mahindra adds to the US-based firm?s partnerships with other technology firms like SAP, Microsoft and TenCent to grow its global cloud footprint.

It comes in the backdrop of IBM?s announcement in January last year to expand its global footprint of SoftLayer cloud centres. The firm said it would invest USD 1 billion into its Bluemix Platform-as-a-Service to help usher developers into the era of hybrid cloud. “IBM has signed a strategic teaming agreement with Tech Mahindra, a specialist in digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering with USD 3.5 billion in revenue and over 670 clients across 51 countries, it said in a statement.

IBM will work with Tech Mahindra to build a platform for the development of cloud-based apps for its clients on Bluemix Dedicated, a single-tenant version of Bluemix, it added. Bluemix runs on SoftLayer cloud infrastructure and combines the strength of IBM?s middleware software with tools from IBM’s partner ecosystem to offer DevOps in the cloud.

With access to services and APIs from across the tech industry, Bluemix helps developers speed application deployment from months to minutes, IBM said.

Through this partnership, IBM will provide an open, flexible cloud environment to enable Tech Mahindra?s developers to build cloud-native and cloud enabled applications with a scalable model, it added.
