Welcome to the
Open Source Incubator
Open source software is a vehicle for innovation and adopting it early poses an opportunity. We’re accelerating the time to value for strategic open source projects through co-development with industry clients for their specific use cases.
IBM Research is a leading contributor to open source software delivering differentiated value for hybrid cloud, security and AI and machine learning (ML). We founded the Open Source Incubator to create deep engagement with thought-leading industry partners invested in the innovation happening with open source software.
The Open Source Incubator is a trusted advisor program to help industry seize opportunity and overcome challenges for a curated selection of innovative open source projects with significant potential business impact. The Incubator enables teams to develop the open source technical expertise needed to successfully plan, implement and deploy projects to prove business value.
Working with IBM Research will enable enterprises to harness the power of highly strategic, open source software, by working closely to incubate key use cases to accelerate the time to value.
The objectives of the Open Source Incubator are to enable customers to:
- Experience and learn about the open source software through curated content from IBM Research in the form of tutorials, videos, technical papers, and events featuring IBM Research leaders
- Experiment with the open source software through available runtimes, demonstrations and sample use cases available in the cloud or in your enterprise
- Explore the potential for your business requirements and use a bank of hours to get one-on-one time with Research scientists to advance your use cases for any of the open source projects in the Incubator
Deliberate innovation is the union of technical innovation and authentic demand. We’re bringing the technical innovation and expertise, you bring the authentic demand. Together, we’ll advance the state of open source.
