The documentation provided is so good that it is rare you will need to engage with their support professional, however, if things don’t quite fit, they are on hand and ready to help with any and all challenges faced.

I have been working in IT sector for more than 15 years. I have worked with various vendors. IBM's sales team, support team have been really helpful. After we start to use their product, their UX design team also contacted us to get feedback from us. They are really interested about our experience.

IBM Cloud has brilliant documentation, in case of any issues or when researching IBM Cloud products, this is where I look for answers first. The IBM cloud interface is really intuitive. The reason why I'm not giving a 10 is that in case that you have too many Docker images, the Cloud Registry interface doesn't have server-side pagination and when it tries to load the Docker images it times out occasionally. A simple fix to that would be to add a server-side pagination if possible.

overall the support for IBM cloud products are very good. Self guided support is sufficient from the cloud doc and tutorial video and IBM expertise is generally helpful. As for IBM developer communities, it is relatively small than other major competitors. For example, some unique question might not find quick answer from the communities easily.
