Bebop Technology

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.

IBM

As it is an open-source platform as a service, it is very easy to operate, scale, and deploy regardless of what programming language and framework it's written in. However, it could be improved in terms of scalability. There should be proper documentation for easier and clearer understanding to make the process smooth.

  • 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.

    Usability

    Bebop Technology

    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.

    CF is what we initially went with to establish a development pipeline and start our cloud journey, now we are expanding this and although we are now pulling in many other tools and functions around CF, it is not being replaced. It stands out as having a key place working ‘with’ git, Kubernetes, IBM cloud etc, not against or segregated from it.

    Return on Investment

    Bebop Technology

    • 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.

    • IBM Bluemix is mainly a foundation enabler at this stage, although our business plan does look promising.
    • The low cost of development on Bluemix for a start-up like us is so helpful......we had no spare cash for this project besides what we could save or borrow at first, and that wasn't much. We are still trying to attract venture capital to cover the main Cordova Coding effort plus the launch "Cash Burn".
    • Features like push notifications, mobile-back end, and world-beating security help us to sell our SaaS products/services.
    • The pure (usually!) functionality of IBM products and services is very rewarding to work with.They are so insightful and thoughtful, to say naught of clever!
