continues to heap new developer functionality onto its Bluemix cloud platform, providing support for low-code application development and adding security authorization into apps, among other enhancements.

Overall, IBM’s goal

Overall, IBM’s goal is to make Bluemix the go-to platform for developers of all types, from so-called “citizen developers” to professional development teams building enterprise applications and commercial products.

The Decision Composer service enables developers to graphically model the data and logic that drives decisions within an application. These models take the place of code, allowing developers to use data to test multiple business scenarios and their outcomes, and then deploy and automate specific decisions directly into operations, IBM said. These decisions could range from the pricing of a product to how a customer-facing app is personalized to individual users.
