IBM has signed Sogeti, a subsidiary of the Capgemini Group, as a partner for its Bluemix cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Sogeti has more than 20,000 professionals in 15 countries offering IT services.
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. Bluemix runs on SoftLayer cloud infrastructure and combines the strength of IBM’s middleware software with other open services and tools from IBM partners and its developer ecosystem to offer DevOps in the cloud.
In addition to opening access to Bluemix for its own developers, Sogeti will 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.
“We’re constantly adding new services to the IBM Cloud to help our developer ecosystem collaborate easier, manage costs, speed time to market, communicate better with their clients and take advantage of their data to drive growth,” said Steve Robinson, General Manager of IBM Cloud Platform Services. “By partnering with IBM, Sogeti will ensure that its own developers and clients will be able to achieve efficiency through innovation with a scalable cloud platform that’s designed for the enterprise.”
