It’s been an exciting time for IBM. We recently made the biggest software acquisition in history. Very rarely have I seen any big organization move so quickly and decisively to embrace open source and build a prescriptive methodology to modernize IT workloads. A key part of this strategy is Cloud Pak for Data, our modern Data and AI platform.
Today, we’re announcing the latest update to the IBM Cloud Pak for Data platform, version 2.5. We are extremely excited for this release, as it brings to a head three key areas we’ve been building for over the last year and a half: Red Hat integration, new key built-in capabilities and a heavy focus on open source.
Let’s start with Red Hat. Soon, Cloud Pak for Data will be fully integrated and certified on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, making it the architecture our platform is delivered on. We’ve been focused on the success of our developer community and the ability to easily infuse Cloud Pak for Data’s AI capabilities into Red Hat application development. We’re changing the game for our developer audience and making the goal of machine learning ops (MLOps) attainable.
We’ve already seen success with our hyper-converged infrastructure – IBM Cloud Pak for Data System – that includes Red Hat OpenShift. And with the core platform and ecosystem services now fully certified, we can showcase the potential of what’s possible when IBM and Red Hat join forces that will change how our customers embrace data and AI.
