Developer ExperienceImproving the user experience of developers using the IBM Cloud
In the last quarter of 2017 The Developer Experience was responsible for bringing in 21,467 new trial users to the Cloud. 70% of those new trial users provisioned resources using our experience, and 3.5% of those users converted to paid accounts (which is a 230% increase over the platform’s standard rates). What’s more, these numbers were double our initial targets.
Our conversion rates have continued to improve as we continue to deliver updates. In the first month of 2018, we accounted for 32% of all paid account conversions to IBM Cloud which was up 23% from the end of 2017.
