IBM unveiled a new set of services for IBM’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS), Bluemix, that enable developers to infuse new analytics capabilities into cloud-based applications.

The company said the new IBM Cloud tools are designed to help developers broaden the capabilities of their applications to give users a more robust cloud experience that enables integration of data analytics and visualization seamlessly in their apps.

IBM said the IBM Streaming Analytics service is now in open beta, providing capability to instantaneously analyze data, scaling to thousands of sources, on the cloud.

Streaming Analytics service enables an easier and more efficient way to visualize data. The service is completely scalable; dynamically building out the infrastructure as needed, giving developers time to focus on building important business logic and analytics.

There is also IBM dashDB, which is touted as a generally available high-performance, massively scalable cloud data warehouse service that enables simple and speedy information management, analytics and business intelligence operations in the cloud.

“The developer-friendly, open-standards-based Bluemix catalog includes over 100 tools and services of the most prominent open-source technologies combined with IBM and third-party services that allow developers to build, run and manage cloud applications with more flexibility,” the company said.
