IBM and Capgemini Group subsidiary Sogeti, are partnering to bring IBM’s Bluemix Cloud Foundry solution to developers and clients across 15 countries including most of Europe, the US and India, to help them integrate and analyse data easier and more efficiently.
As the largest deployment of Cloud Foundry in the world, Bluemix will help Sogeti build hybrid cloud applications across public, private and on-premise infrastructure faster; leveraging IBM’s open-standards based approach to cloud to streamline integration of data.
In addition to opening access to Bluemix for its own developers, Sogeti will also use it to power existing end-user solutions for commerce, the internet of things (IoT) and data analytics for clients in retail, healthcare, transportation, and energy and utilities.
The 15 Countries includes: UK, USA, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Spain, Ireland, India and Switzerland.
Sogeti Vice President Andreas Sjöström said: "As cloud continues to transform how we collaborate and work with technology, many of our clients are looking to build more and more of their apps and systems with cloud.
"However, many are still hesitating to make such a transition, due to requirements around data privacy, security and performance in the cloud.
"With Bluemix Dedicated, we are able to help address these concerns by offering dedicated servers and cloud data centres, while still offering the highly valuable benefits of a cloud infrastructure, such as accelerated business speed, collaboration and visibility."
