Are you looking for your next move? Do you want to move into the API economy? Can you write Node code? Look no further – I’m hiring! Listen up.
Back in 2014 Gartner named StrongLoop as a “Cool vendor” in its published report on Cool Application vendors. Yes, Gartner does indeed publish such a report – see for yourself here: “Cool Vendors in Application Development, 2014.”
It’s been over a year since StrongLoop was acquired by IBM and became part of IBM Cloud, and I’m proud to say we stayed cool! Our processes stayed cool and improved – we are Agile, have adopted the best of the Spotify Engineering principles, and have the ability to turn on a dime. Sound like a startup? Well, to be honest it feels like we never left a startup! The team expanded, the product blended into IBM’s API Management products and re-launched as API Connect with great success and traction in the market. We adopted new and modern communication tooling, worked on cutting-edge technology, re-drew the lines and with continuous improvement and iteration we lead the way in providing full life-cycle solutions for the API Economy.
I’m excited to say that Forrester Research has recognized IBM as the leader of the pack with a strong Offering and equally strong Market presence! See the diagram below from the report. You can download the full report here:
