Build cloud native apps

Modernize or build new?

In many cases, creating new applications is not necessary. Modernizing existing applications allows your business to leverage existing investments while benefiting from the flexibility and scalability of the cloud.

However, for some organizations, starting from scratch is easier than enhancing existing applications. Building net-new applications help you deliver the innovation that users demand without being tethered to previous iterations or decisions. Where should you start?

For the past 20 years, IBM has invested significantly in open source code, communities, and governance, including the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

With more than 20,000 Kubernetes clusters currently in production and running, IBM Cloud is built to deliver.

IBM Cloud provides one of the highest industry standards for data encryption and adheres to more than 30 compliance programs.
