Check out our new developer hub to get started with IBM Cloud Pak for Applications.


The IBM Cloud Pak for Applications is the first of five Cloud Paks that IBM released in response to our clients’ need for tighter integration across IBM’s portfolio to enable your journey to cloud. Cloud Pak for Applications is a secure, complete, containerized set of capabilities for developers, solution architects, and operators that addresses the entire application lifecycle: architecture, development, management, and DevOps.

Most organizations still need to move 80% of their infrastructure to the cloud. To accelerate this modernization journey, Cloud Pak for Apps connects the agility and DevOps of cloud-based modern application development to the functionality and dependability of existing Java-based workloads. By leveraging Red Hat OpenShift, the IBM Cloud Pak for Applications provides a hybrid, multicloud foundation built on open standards, freeing workloads and data to run anywhere.

To help developers get started, we’re excited to announce the Cloud Pak for Applications Developer Hub, written by developers, for developers. This hub offers everything you need to migrate existing Java-based applications, as well as to build new and modify existing cloud-native applications.

Access step-by-step tutorials, code patterns, community, and ongoing education and support from IBM’s subject matter experts in application migration and modernization.

We’ve also created learning paths where we curated lists of content based on whether you just want introductory content, are a developer, or are a solution architect. Each path begins with introductory material, and continues through intermediate, advanced, and expert-level sets of content.

The best part is, you can — and should — start now! The technology is rapidly evolving, so we’ll continuously update the learning paths to keep you up to date and ease your transformation journey.
