IBM Unleashes Open Source Projects To Fuel Cloud Developer Innovation

IBM has unveiled developerWorks Open, a cloud-based environment for developers to access emerging IBM technologies and technical expertise, and collaborate with a global network to accelerate projects. IBM will release 50 projects to the open source community to speed enterprise adoption and spur a new class of cloud innovations around mobile, analytics and other high-growth areas. 

IBM is launching projects spanning healthcare, mobile, retail, insurance and banking. Developers can not only expect to download the code, but also have access to blogs, videos, tools and techniques to accelerate their efforts. 

Among the broad range of technologies already deployed on developerWorks Open, IBM is making available projects in key areas to help bridge the development gap. IBM will also offer these services on its programming platform for cloud software development, Bluemix. 

"IBM firmly believes that open source is the foundation of innovative application development in the cloud," IBM Vice President of Cloud Architecture and Technology Dr. Angel Diaz said.
