JAXEnter: IBM and Lightbend collaborate on a toolchain for Java and Scala developers
IBM and Lightbend have announced a joint collaboration this week in order to take advantage of Lightbend’s world-leading Reactive Application Development Platform on the JVM and advance the development of artificial intelligence and cognitive solutions in the enterprise. The goal of this collaboration will be to provide a complete toolchain for Java and Scala developers. Specifically, for building and deploying AI both on-premise and in the cloud.
“It’s about embracing wholesale change in how we build data-centric applications,” said Jonas Bonér, founder and CTO of Lightbend. “The demands for availability, scalability, and resilience are forcing Fast Data architectures to become more like microservice architectures.”
