Today, IBM is introducing Reactive Platform Development Accelerator, an extension of the Reactive Platform portfolio as a key component in the continuation of our strategic development and investment partnership with Lightbend, which began in summer of 2017. With this offering, we’re further demonstrating our commitment to providing developers the tools and the resources they need to extend their capabilities and to transform their business and industry.

Reactive Platform Development Accelerator is aimed at accelerating time to value as developers move from prototyping, to proof of technology, to production deployment of their cloud native solutions. Additionally, it provides developers access to the application management, monitoring, and advanced tools for Reactive Platform.

Reactive Platform Development Accelerator, a monthly term license offering, connects developers with Scala, Akka, Play, and Lagom subject matter experts and open source committers at IBM and Lightbend. This direct access to expertise helps accelerate learning and project success by removing development blockers and promoting knowledge transfer more seamlessly.

Adopting new approaches and new technologies is always rewarding, and the pace of change around us demands the rapid transformation of how we work. IBM has a long history supporting the millions of developers in the Java and Scala communities. IBM spearheaded the creation of an open environment and open tools for Java developers which resulted in Eclipse and then the Eclipse Foundation, and has supported the 1.2 million developers in the Scala community for many years. Through our ongoing partnership with Lightbend, we have trained over 20,000 developers as part of the Scala Programming for Data Science learning path on, and are helping enterprises look for new ways to drive reliability and elasticity into their data-driven applications and systems in the cloud.
