Softlayer is designed to offer complete

transparency from network topology down to the hardware

The resulting

visibility means you can have more

control over your application and its performance – as a well as security and compliance management

The app revolution

Apps are everywhereThe quantity and usefulness of web and mobile apps has led to an “app revolution” among consumers and businesses alike.

Experience mattersCustomers now expect experiences to be integrated across web, mobile, in-store, and phone.

Cloud makes it possibleDeploying and hosting apps is faster, easier, and more cost effective than ever. The resources and possibilities are limitless.

Fundamentally changing the way we interact with technology.

Bluemix Third Party Service Evaluation Criteria

1.Technology and user experience

• Service is cloud enabled and fits the service model: The offering needs to be a cloud offering, and run on cloud (versus a downloadable). As a service provider, you must respond to provisioning endpoint requests, create an instance of your service and dynamically provide credentials back to the provisioning request. It is up to the service provider to manage all instances of the service post-creation. Recommend <10sec provisioning time

• Expose APIs: As a composable service, it needs to provide public APIs, so the APIs can be invoked within the application

• Provide seamless user experience: Allow end user to navigate the service easily, also with seamless flow between the service and other parts of the application

• Handle scaling: The service either handles the traffic or volume changes seamlessly at the backend, or the service provides appropriate warnings and actions to users

• Website includes English version

2. Business model

• Perpetual free tier is required until Bluemix supports commerce for 3rd party partner offerings (target Q4)

Page 33: IBM Softlayer Bluemix Marketplace

33 © 2014 IBM Corporation

How will IBM and Business Partners handle commerce? Commercial model will follow established marketplace models.- IBM will invoice the customer and collect payment.- Different options for metering and billing, including support for complex metering by

taking metering information from the Business Partner as part of the regular billing cycle.

- IBM retains a royalty.- Business Partners will be responsible for their costs of delivery, including


Business Partners continue to establish and maintain direct relationships with customers.

Business Partners must ensure their services meet production SLAs with production level support.

First commercial capability launched in Q3 2014, supporting US transactions with credit cards. Additional functionality will be provided in successive upgrades, including support for non-US transactions.

Will support US federal government requirements for usage by federal users in 2015

Page 34: IBM Softlayer Bluemix Marketplace

Each marketplace service can have one or more Editions (i.e., pricing plans)

Each Edition can have one of the following Revenue Models- Free- One time- Recurring- Tiered

All business partners must offer at least one priced edition, with a 30 day trial period.

One time services are charged upon checkout. Any download service (e.g., pattern, image) must be set up as a One time service.

Recurring services can be charged per day or per month. Partial day or partial month usage counts as a full day or month, respectively.

Tiered services can combine multiple one time and recurring charges.

Metered services (e.g., “$/user”) provide the most flexibility. Your service provides the usage data, and IBM Cloud marketplace performs the calculations and billing. Most common units of measurement are supported.

All priced plans can have a setup fee.
