IBM and GitHub, a software platform used by more than 12 million developers to collaborate, announced a strategic partnership to dramatically advance the development of next generation cloud applications for enterprise customers. IBM and GitHub plan to deliver GitHub Enterprise as a dedicated service on Bluemix, IBM's Cloud Platform, to customers across private and hybrid cloud environments. By working with IBM Cloud, developers can expect to learn, code and work with GitHub's collaborative development tools in a private, environment with robust security capabilities.

With GitHub Enterprise, code collaboration, code reuse, and review are built into the development process, offering managed, collaborative coding for large-scale enterprise software development teams. As part of Bluemix, the solution will provide customers with Hybrid DevOps capabilities through the Bluemix Dedicated and Local managed delivery models. As a result, customers can expect to have a unique opportunity to build software using GitHub Enterprise on Bluemix, allowing their developers to create end-to-end enterprise apps within IBM Cloud without having to worry about the overhead costs of infrastructure.

Benefits of GitHub Enterprise on IBM Cloud are expected to include:
* IBM Bluemix: The offering will be integrated with Bluemix's broad portfolio of DevOps tools, including access to more than 140 APIs and services for cognitive and IoT app development, as well as new sources of data.
* Agile development: By enabling developers with the ability to view, collaborate, integrate APIs, iterate, deploy and update on one single platform, GitHub Enterprise on IBM Cloud will equip large corporations with an environment that can be used to build unique, competitive applications at the same speed as smaller, disruptive companies.
* Hybrid: GitHub Enterprise will be available as a service through Bluemix Dedicated and Bluemix Local, versions of the IBM Cloud platform which allow enterprises to extend their cloud across public, dedicated, and on-premises server environments.
* Security: IBM will integrate security scanning technologies in the Bluemix GitHub Enterprise Service for clients looking to help protect themselves from vulnerabilities that may have been inserted during development. This provides enterprises with a way to help secure hybrid development pipelines and development.
