Cloud computing is an obvious technology option considered by many C-level executives. However, understanding when and how to use it can make all the difference when it comes to business success or catastrophic failure.
The underlying question is, how can you insure that connectivity is highly secure and well managed such that this becomes a truly compelling business model and fuels new business innovations?

We then introduce IBM Bluemix, a cloud-based development platform with its secure connectivity options. Finally, we challenge you to look to the future and consider how the API Economy can further enrich your business.
