If you have contractors or workers working off site on multiple work stations, it's easy to not carry a laptop everywhere. Just log in and use the Bebop software on the cloud.

This really depends on which cloud vendor (if you have one) you are already working with. If you are already an IBM customer, then you should definitely give IBM Cloud Foundry a try. It is a great way to run your applications in the cloud, and does not have a steep learning curve as using Docker/Kubernetes, and in fact, can serve as an starting point to get you there overtime. You can usually find a buildpack (either directly from IBM or from the community) for your application, and the deployment usually does not require you to make any changes and you can get up and running in a few hours.

IBM Cloud Foundry

  • Need: VISUALIZATION CAPABILITIES! Particularly with the Conversation Service.
  • Need: Annotation capabilities for dialog nodes in Conversation Service.
  • Need: Search/querying capabilities in Conversation Service
  • Need: Clearer documentation of the S2T service. I had to use a third party website for an understanding of how to use this.

Bebop is very easy to use. As long as you have a decent computer hardware and a fast internet connection, you can access programs anywhere, any time. This makes it very convenient. In addition, I don't have to carry my computer everywhere. I leave one at the office and one at home.

I haven't had to use support. But I'm sure it's backed pretty well by the company now that Google bought it.

Both are very useful VMware and have their list of software available.

We have used Red Hat which does not do business in Australia with people like us. They were a promising service (PaaS) while we were able to use the free version but as soon as we needed access to serious mobile-first services we had to pay and their policy meant we had to leave. Don't know why they don't want to do this sort of low-end business in Australia.We briefly looked at Heroku and others but quickly realised that since we demand enterprise strength security, strength insight, and reliability, we had to choose IBM Bluemix.

Return on Investment

Bebop

  • Workers can work from anywhere, home or office, as long as they have a good internet connection.
  • Workers don't need to carry top of the line work stations everywhere. Office can buy mid grade laptops to run high end software over cloud.

  • Bluemix has allowed me to effectively serve the App industry more recently, especially with the new visual design implemented recently.
  • BlueMix offers a lot more customization of the Platform, rather than Infrastructure, giving me a big edge over other companies offering only AWS or Azure cloud services, and brings a lot more apparent value to my business.
  • The additional features, especially the Watson service subset offers a HUGE range of new and innovative technologies, especially in the realm of AI, that encourages my clients to test out new potential features, which leads to more sales as they increase there platform size and capability.
