CRN covered this story in an article this week, for which they interviewed Vishal Rajpal, general manager of IBM BPMS at  Perficient. Vishal weighed in:

“Consumers are rapidly becoming a driving force in today’s market. Couple that with the blitz of new technologies like mobile, social and cloud, and the game has changed drastically,” said Vishal. 

“The movement to mobile and digital channels has prompted leading organizations to make sense of the vast volumes of information generated through those channels, and has placed demands on them for effective usability, architecture and development approaches. There’s a struggle to keep pace – internal infrastructures need to support these various technology advancements, and need to do so in real-time. With the acquisition of UrbanCode, IBM continues to piece together the mobile puzzle and closes the next logical step in broadening their DevOps strategy,” Rajpal said.

“We can leverage UrbanCode’s software delivery to create and distribute applications for a range of mobile devices in a matter of hours,” he added.

UrbanCode will end up being integrated with many IBM products, including:

  • Rational development tools
  • Tivoli management software
  • IBM SmartCloud
  • Green Hat
  • Worklight mobile app platform

Perficient’s team, including Vishal, is at IBM Impact this week discussing social, mobile, cloud and many other business needs and IBM technology solutions.
