We've used it to deploy our small scaled apps on the cloud. It makes the whole deployment process super simple and easy to manage.
We also used it as our data warehouse, where you can safely store data.
IBM cloud options effectively solved our problems of continuous deployment in a short time and make it cost-effective.
And the ability to be scalable makes it even handier when there are spikes in the usage of the app and suddenly it takes much more resources than in times of normal usage.
  • Easy deployment of the apps on the cloud
  • Supports many different useful tools.
  • Safe space for data storage
  • Minimal Pricing.
  • scalability
  • Monitoring and controlling billable resources
  • Knowledge base can be more informative.
  • Some errors are not really intuitive to debug.
  • Navigation on cloud to access files can be easier.
I believe it's pretty handy to use if you have a small-scaled application and want to deploy it on the cloud or just want to store data somewhere safe and easily accessible place.
It also makes it super easy to deploy apps that can be edited and deployed over and over in a short period of time.
Overall, IBM Cloud Developer Tools are one of the best choices for all our cloud computing needs.

IBM Cloud Developer Tools is being used in our organization and is very helpful in making the deployment of applications quite continuous. It made it possible for us to generate, run and deploy applications quickly. Its integration is quite simple along with its support team that is highly professional people with good manners. It has helped our developers with application building.
  • Its deployment templates are time savers and are very useful for us.
  • Its integration with Cloud applications is its strength as it helped in making our work easy.
  • It offers much flexibility.
  • It is amazing in development, deployment, and delivery.
  • Its price is quite high and this made it unsuitable for us as we cannot afford such high rates.
  • Its Setup takes much longer time and this is frustrating.
  • Its interface needs to be improved and easy even for the Newbies.
It is a tool that I can recommend to anyone with the same field and I know they won't get disappointed with it because firstly it provides remote access and one can deploy swiftly from any location. It is suitable for large firms with massive services. It is not recommended to someone looking for cheap software of this kind as it is an extremely expensive tool. Moreover, its setup takes much longer time and this is infuriating.

The way it Supports Kubernetes deployments, Deployed with a simplified experience using Helm charts, It's overall a really a great tool and very easy to use. It has helped me a lot during my development and simplified the process. Its AI capabilities are unmatched. the flexibility and portability it provides for both app and data are awesome.
  • User friendly
  • Easy to use
  • Efficient
  • Great AI capabilities
  • Maybe we can improve the documentation
We use it to automate the server deployment process and it really suits there as it makes that process faster and easier for the developer. All the processes such as creation, running, testing, deployment of an application are very easy with the help of IBM Cloud Developer Tools. Also, it's a bit hard to debug the errors in this tool. So in cases of an application where the error count is more, this will not be really a good tool to use maybe.

IBM Cloud Developer Tools are used within our organization to speed up and automate parts of our server deployment process. We use the command-line interface tools to quickly and scalably deploy or remove servers, view server statuses using simple to read and edit configuration files. It helps a lot when we need to do things repeatedly (say, deploy X amount of server Y) because we don't have to bother with IBM's interface.
  • The commands are logical and easy to learn
  • The configuration files it expects are easy to use
  • Regular updates include frequently asked features
  • It is hard to find the thing you are looking for in the official documentation
  • Sometimes the requests we make to IBM's API timeout for no apparent reason
  • The errors returned by the commands are sometimes hard to understand
If you are already working in IBM's Cloud deployment services, it is at least worth it to check it out. It is free to use, and can help you automate much of the deployment process. While I would typically recommend it if you are working with 10+ servers, it can be used by anyone if you expect you need to repeat the deployment process in the future

We are using IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery to deploy the applications continuously. This helps a lot to create, run, develop, test and deploy the application with less amount of downtime. [Also] we deployed 100+ projects with continuous delivery process. This makes easy to migrate applications from other cloud service providers as well. Great support and great service given.
  • Run
  • Test
  • Deploy
  • Less Downtime
  • Downtime
  • Making user friendly
  • Tools
When we want to migrate our applications from on premises to cloud this IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery is well suited, and it helps [us] to develop and run locally and deploy into the cloud when we want. There is [a] pipeline used to maintain continuous delivery of on premises application into the cloud. Great service and great support with IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery.

IBM Cloud Developer Tools service is used to approve development setting the changes my colleagues and I make each day It assists us with computerizing the testings and code lucidness in the conveyance pipeline, that way we can keep with code rules to keep maintainability.
The primary reason for using it is that it supports many programming languages. This tool is more valuable and supportive for application developers. This offers the list for cloud deployment and upkeep processes. They have kept all the interaction dumps as free from any and all harm manner. They have plans for application building and deploying in the cloud.

With IBM Cloud Developer Tools, developers can get access tools that are required for cloud-local development, across the board place. From runtime provisioning to restricting administrations to setting up toolchains to sending code, IBM gives capacities that plan to make developers more useful. Developers can likewise expand their experience with work in SDKs and APIs, a full-highlighted CLI, and a Cloud Shell for web development.
  • It provides integration with many tools.
  • Setup is very easy
  • Deployment templates are available
  • It can be easily integrated with other IBM cloud based applications
  • More details of logs can be provided when the deployment build fails
  • Sometimes it becomes hard to debug the errors at deployment time
  • It is little bit expensive
IBM Cloud Developer Tools is appropriate for practically any venture, particularly on the off chance that you are as of now utilizing others IBM Cloud administrations. Nearly anyone with no past experience with the interface can make and arrangement their underlying assistance. Notwithstanding, in the event that your project requests a more expounded conveyance pipeline, it can require more top to bottom learning of the help.

Our organization currently uses IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery for deploying the company's web applications. Basically this is taking the application's code, compile it and put it online in the web so all users can access it.
This process requires connecting to the code repository using a token, and executing some shell scripts to execute some tasks that include compiling each app, and assigning the domains where it will be finally deployed.
  • Easy to use
  • Deploy templates provided
  • Known and documented command line cli (Cloud Foundry)
  • Not reliable for mission critical software
  • Very hard to debug deploying problems
  • Terrible support timing
It's hard to believe that a huge company as IBM would provide a service that's only reliable for non mission critical applications, but that's the truth. IBM has shown no idea on how to hold and manage it's Cloud Foundry version. Result of this, when it fails, it fails terribly, more than 6 hours of downtime due to IBM Cloud problems, more than 1 complete day failing to update our applications due to Continuous Delivery problems, and support didn't know when the problem was solved or what the cause was.
I would only recommend IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery for non mission critical applications or simple proof of concepts. Continuous delivery doesn't seem to be IBM's strength, but only a must have because all "the big ones" have it.

In our company, we use it as a suite of cloud computing services, which offers both platform & infrastructure services. It is being used by limited users in the organization. As the IBM Cloud Developer Tools offers Better engagement, Speed, insights, etc.
  • Integrated Platform for ease access
  • Can re use the Templates
  • Stability & Flexibility
  • Easy Setup
  • Storage Volume can be increased (Not a major one, but can be)
  • Billing & Pricing could be better (For Beginners)
  • User Interface is confusing sometimes (For me personally)
  • Build Fails without any reason, not sure why
  • Not a functionality, But need to increase customer support
This tool is good enough to recommend, because it is accessible in remote locations, and anyone can deploy from anywhere. Initial setups are easy and can be set-up quickly

CD is used to implement CI/CD pipelines to continuously deploy applications we are developing, for us or for our clients.
We have around 15 developers using it daily for several applications.
  • Simple to use.
  • Ability to package our own tools.
  • Integrate to a variety of tools.
  • Much too expensive.
I would recommend this tool only for large companies with a huge usage of the service.
The pricing model based on users is nonsense in a cloud world where services are priced on usage.
It kills the interest of the product.
I recommend users to build a TCO comparison with alternatives. Competitors may be less expensive in many situations.
Nothing special to say : the UX is clear and simple.
We had only few issues with the service, quite long time ago now. The support has always been effective.

At my company, we use the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery service to validate in a development setting the changes my co-workers and I make every day. It helps us to automate the testings and code readability in the delivery pipeline, that way we can keep with code guidelines to keep Ithe maintainability.
  • The setup is really easy and intuitive.
  • Integrates easily with other IBM Cloud services.
  • The initial log of errors is helpful.
  • When a build fails, the only way to gather detailed information about the error is through the terminal.
  • Sometimes it has failed without a clear reason. However, this doesn't happen frequently and after a couple of minutes, the problem is usually fixed.
  • Sometimes you might want more personalization of the delivery pipeline, and in that case, it becomes a lot less intuitive.
IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery is well suited for almost any project, especially if you are already using others IBM Cloud services. Almost anybody without any previous experience with the interface can create and setup their initial service. However, if you project demands a more elaborated delivery pipeline, it can require more in depth learning of the service.
In more than a year using the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery tool, I haven't had any major complaints or problems. However, in the last month, IBM suffered from a couple of problems through several of its services, and for a short period of time, I couldn't deploy successfully my projects. The problem was brief and was quickly fixed.
