IBM is rolling out a new set of techniques and services aimed at accelerating cloud migrations and deployment of hybrid clouds. The move is part of IBM’s efforts to manage multi-cloud deployments that switch between public and private services.

Initially, IBM launched ways to combine and manage multiple clouds of rivals such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure. The company then came up with additional ways to apply artificial intelligence in this, and plans were added to take over Red Hat and add it to a hybrid cloud project.

Accelerated roll-out

The IBM Cloud Migration Factory’s automation tools are expected to accelerate multi-cloud deployment by 25 percent. Part of this will also be a collaboration with the company ServiceNow. The IBM Cloud Migration Factory helps move applications to the cloud. But there will also be additional algorithms that help to map out the hardware, software and architecture of users of IBM Services.

Five new multi-cloud migration services will help. It’s about, among other things:

  • A Cloud Innovative toolkit that brings analysis and automated migration under one roof.
  • AI Insights, which means algorithms that look at similarities between apps, components and more, in order to arrive at a roadmap for the migration.
  • Automated migration and modernization tools, which help to develop deployment models for various apps.

In addition, IBM is expanding its partnership with ServiceNow. It is currently used to manage IT operations. IBM integrates its Multicloud Management Platform with ServiceNow’s IT management tools. These tools include the ability to use Kubernetes and manage applications across multiple cloud environments.
