New capabilities for developers are on the way via Bluemix, IBM’s cloud platform.
The tools were designed to give developers new code patterns and building blocks to help them rapidly create cloud apps across web and backend systems, as well as mobile.
“As an extension of the Bluemix Mobile Dashboard, the Bluemix Developer Console expands ready-to-code patterns into web and backend apps, helping to cut development time by generating the necessary elements that developers need to spin up cognitive apps, including boilerplates and building and configuring code,” Big Blue noted in a release this week.
The goal is to drastically reduce the time developers often spend setting up microservices and connecting them into other components. Notably, the Bluemix Developer Console now accelerates the process by offering templates of ready-to-code applications complete with integrations into databases, as well as cognitive and security services.
One major benefit: these improvements help developers of finance and healthcare apps whose need for speed is often critical.
Bluemix has rapidly grown to become one of the largest open, public cloud deployments in the world. Based in open standards, it features more than 150 tools and services spanning categories of cognitive intelligence, blockchain, security, Internet of Things, DevOps and more.
