IBM has announced new, cloud-based DevOps services, software and infrastructure designed to help large organizations develop and deliver quality software faster. By tapping into the collaborative power of IBM’s Cloud portfolio and deep business transformation experience, enterprises can speed the delivery of software that drives new models of engagement and business.

Software-driven innovation is becoming a primary approach to how businesses create and deliver new value to customers. A survey of 400 business and IT executives by the IBM Institute for Business Value showed businesses that are more effective at software delivery are also more profitable than their peers nearly 70 percent of the time (1). DevOps provides a way for businesses to remain competitive, applying lean and agile principles to software development to speed the delivery of software that meets new market requirements.

IBM’s new DevOps Innovation Services help address the challenge of scaling DevOps, enabling enterprises to transform their software delivery lifecycle. The hybrid cloud services combine IBM’s industry expertise from hundreds of organizational change and application development projects with the industry’s leading application development portfolio, including Bluemix, IBM’s open cloud platform-as-a-service.

Enterprises now have the option of combining on-premise, private and public clouds with the collaborative DevOps capabilities they need to deliver apps faster -- along with the data security, control and integration larger companies need. The new DevOps Innovation Services enable organizations to assess and benchmark their readiness for DevOps and chart a path forward, then address typical bottlenecks in key phases of software delivery, including development, testing, release and deployment and monitoring. IBM also today announced new and enhanced software and services that allow organizations to:
* Manage software development with significantly reduced set up time and infrastructure costs using a collaborative lifecycle management (CLM) solution on premise or as managed service in a virtual private cloud.
* Extend mainframe development and testing to the cloud with the IBM Rational Development and Test solution, increasing flexibility and capacity, while reducing time, risk and cost. Available on premise or as a managed service in a virtual private cloud.  
* Enable the rapid design, deployment and update of full-stack, hybrid clouds, plus enhanced capabilities for mainframe deployments using the new IBM UrbanCode Deploy solution.
* Free up developers to focus on innovation with the IBM DevOps continuous-delivery pipeline service to automate and schedule the various stages of software deployment to IBM Bluemix.
* Continuously monitor user experience with mobile apps in real-time with IBM MobileFirst Quality Assurance services, drawing on analytics to understand user behavior and feedback to drive product improvements.
