I did and learned a lot of shit. It’s cool to watch a cloud service come together. I doubt we’ll ever get any market share. I have recruiters reach out to me all the time now which I doubt would’ve happened if I took that offer from Albertsons
Exactly how I feel. We are ibm partner and now I need to write some certifications and then build some proof of concepts for potential clients apparently but it's not all well formed. Their own tutorials don't work half the time and since it's not all open source or popular like say aws the community isn't that huge either to get answers quickly
I believe its just personal opinion of many. I beg to differ from comments above. I agree that 2 years back it was entirely different offering. Now, it’s 1000% more mature. Still, there is a lot of room to improve. Services are definitely more cohesive than before. @thinkbee, overall the offerings available on IBM Cloud are way a lot more than what it used to be. A lot of new developers are putting more and more items to the catalog.
IBM always have been targeted towards enterprise and corporate. So hard to gain grip on market easily. AWS has been in market for quite a long time and we are catching up with them really fast. Again, this is just my point of view.
We are not “catching up fast” we are so far behind we’ll never catch up. We should drop our actual cloud and ride redhead cloud services for revenue. IBM needs a massive shift for a turnaround and red hat is our only and last hope. (Assuming it goes thru)
I help run an ibm SaaS product on top of ibm cloud and it's a goddamn joke. Outages, shitty architecture. It's all bullshit. The legacy softlayer shit shows it's true colors all the time by way of outages and gaping holes in the offering itself
Previously worked in IBM Cloud 2 years ago. It was an INCREDIBLY top heavy organization. There was little ability to work on things outside of my JD that would help me to grow. Also, like many companies, IBM is known to cut a group at the drop of a hat and lay you off with little of any notice.
Watson is fun, but the ratio of older IBMers who are stuck doing the same thing in the same way vs newer IBMers can make internal culture feel rigid. Feel free to PM me for any other questions
