|The software industry is changing to include a service-based model - Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). This model promises to allow a business to develop their product and expand their customer base with greater speed and low initial costs in exchange for some control over the environment. How does this relate to IBM? SoftLayer is IBM's IaaS, BlueMix is IBM's PaaS, and various IBM products are being offered as SaaS. This session will cover the current Informix service offerings and the BlueMix platform.
