This means its customers will have access to a wealth of IBM Cloud services in a hybrid multi-cloud environment. The company is currently training staff to design applications that are can leverage IBM’s APIs.
"The addition of IBM's cloud into the portfolio of clouds managed under CSC Agility Platform further validates our strategy of creating client value through the orchestration of multiple cloud platforms," explained the President and CEO of CSC Mike Lawrie in press release on the IBM website. "Our expanded partnership with IBM will help us accelerate the delivery of next generation applications that give our joint clients greater flexibility, safety and control of their data as they design and adopt hybrid cloud strategies."
