IBM Interconnect 2015

Interconnect 2015 was a combination of 3 major IBM conferences(Pulse, Innovate and Impact) and it did not fail its expectations. Technology rocked Vegas with IBM's, Business Partners and Customers all coming together for this massive event. We ourselves had a great time at the event and are already looking forward to the 2016 event. Informative Keynotes, Mind-Boggling General Session Speakers and a bucket load of Rock & Roll with Aerosmith all helped to make Interconnect 2015 a memorable event.

We ourselves had a great event, and look forward to kick starting our 2015 growth using Interconnect 2015 as a platform. Being a Premier IBM Business Partner and VAP Software Reseller, Miracle has been helping customers transform their IT and create better Business Value with IBM Technologies. We will continue to do so, and with our innovative and customized solutions in this age of digital transformation.

A New Way Forward

The MQ Appliance

The biggest announcement (And one that had people waiting for a long time), was the announcement of MQ-as-an-Appliance. Messaging and MQ are synonyms in the world of IT, and with the all new MQ Appliance (Put in Top Grade and Proven DataPower Appliance Boxes, but with MQ Software) remote deployment, MQ consolidation and HA/DR all become messaging realities. MQ is being provided in 2 models; MQ 2000A and 2000B.

Here comes Bluemix

The parade has come to town, and has brought its awesomeness along with it. The Cloud has been a buzzword for now, but IBM has helped to redefine that buzzword with a world-class PaaS solution called Blue Mix. Sitting on top of SoftLayer, it provides developers to easily access 3rd party services for building mobile apps, web apps and IoT based apps. It also redefines the terms collaboration and teamwork with unique DevOps Services.

The Ultimate Integrator

IIB has been the everything-to-everything connector for some time, and IBM's middleware technology is the best-in-class for enterprise scale integration. With 2015, IBM brings us the latest and greatest version of IIB, with v10. Simplified IIB deployment, library sharing for applications, MQTT-based messaging support, and the removal of MQ-prerequisite with IIB are some of the supreme features of IIB v10.

An Everything Container

With technology evolving rapidly, it was about time that somebody thought of a platform-agnostic container to deploy your applications. In comes Docker and becomes the IT Talk-of-the-Town, as developers and architects can now develop and collaborate on the same app but on different platforms without having to do the configuration heavy lifting. Docker provides the containers to build apps and deploy anywhere with the containers.
