This is it.
From 21 submissions into the inaugural IBM Pulse App Throwdown, we are now down to the final five.
The Throwdown offers business partners and developers the chance to have their cloud solutions highlighted to clients and IBM Sales teams during qualifying rounds. The winner will be on the main stage on Day 3 of IBM Pulse in front of over 8,000 Re-sellers, Clients, and IBM Sellers.
Just looking at the fab five announced yesterday by Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager, Ecosystem Development, you get a sense for how broadly cloud computing permeates our lives, whether you're talking a highly dependable email infrastructure or an app to simplify ordering a table at your favorite restaurant. What's more, all solutions show a depth of integration into IBM SoftLayer, IBM BlueMix or IBM security and smarter infrastructure technologies.
