Bringing Sophisticated Security, AI to the IBM Cloud (Think Blog)


There are two major themes that bookend the enterprise conversation about cloud adoption. On one hand, businesses are compelled to move more workloads to the cloud to seize the new opportunities presented by AI, Machine Learning, IoT or even next-generation quantum computing or risk getting left behind.

On the other hand, concerns about security and privacy may cause concerns about moving too quickly. In both cases, the path forward is complex, often requiring talent and technology that is hard to come by. Today at Think 2018, IBM is making a number of announcements that address both the innovation opportunity of AI and the need to strengthen security for the cloud.

With these additions, IBM is simplifying how enterprises can securely bridge to the public cloud by helping to address their needs throughout the journey, from accelerating the migration of existing workloads to the cloud to modernizing and extending existing apps to delivering tools to build next-gen cloud native apps.
