IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management as a Service

Hassle-free entry into IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management / Jazz Platform

Deploying the Jazz Platform with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management applications is a difficult challenge for many companies.

Here, we pay special attention to the topics of performance and data protection. We use local SSD arrays for optimal performance and operate the solution in a private ISO 27001 certified data center. For customers with particularly high requirements, we can also operate the solution as an on-premise solution on the customer's hardware.
