Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the IBM Bluemix Garage and Galvanize in San Francisco. It was impressive to see how the IBM Garage is taking a lean user-centered approach to empowering enterprises and entrepreneurs to rapidly identify, prove, design, and build cloud applications for their target markets with IBM Cloud technologies. Currently, IBM Bluemix Garages are located in San Francisco, London, and Toronto with further expansion planned in Nice, France and Melbourne, Australia later this year. The garages offer a number of innovative ways to engage clients and start-ups at all stages of their development lifecycle. I have included an illustration that highlights the offerings below:
Also, IBM is pioneering the concept of a pop-up garages with clients in various cities like Berlin, Tokyo, New York, and others. IBM teams are going into these cities, doing Innovation & Design workshops with clients, and starting full engagements with customers delivering immediate value, flexibility, and results. These teams are comprised of consultants, developers, and designers who travel and work with clients in their own cities. In closing, make plans to visit one of the garages in San Francisco, London, or Toronto – it’s well worth the trip!
