IBM's Bedfellows
Despite IBM's recent Cloudant acquisition, it's interesting to note that the "Dev" realm of the IBM Cloud Maretplace offers a bevy of third-party database offerings including MongoDB. I continue to believe that MongoDB is on a collision course with IBM, but IBM acquisitions don't tend to be beneficial to hot, sexy products. Better that IBM should buy tiny, no-name products in the categories it wants to invade. MongoDB would cost too much money, and then its customers would likely flee.

Re: IBM's Bedfellows
Purchasing promising technologies/companies is one of the easiest growing method of IT giants such as IBM. But after massive purchases, can it really digest well? Can it make fancy product and killer applications? I am with you - MongoDB is too big and not easy to control via simply purchasing it under big IBM umbrella.

PaaS
Doug, how does the PaaS part of this connect to/ interact with other virtual server instances you have with other providers? AWS, etc. Are they trying to encourage the folks who favor the "one throat to choke" method of vendor management?

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
