Nexmo is proud to announce the availability of the Nexmo API platform in the IBM Bluemix Catalog and IBM Marketplace. This immediately opens the Nexmo APIs to everyone on the IBM Bluemix platform, enabling them to easily integrate messaging, text-to-speech, authentication and other communications functions with IBM’s broad product portfolio. At Nexmo, our focus is to ensure our cloud APIs can be implemented into any development platform, mobile app, website or thing.
The IBM Bluemix Catalog is a storehouse of third-party services and solutions supported by an IBM cloud platform that combines open source infrastructure as a service (IaaS) technology with a host of applications, including more than 150 Bluemix APIs and services, which span the categories of Watson, analytics, blockchain and internet of things. As an IBM Business Partner, Nexmo can also offer a wide range of other communication possibilities for IBM Cloud infrastructure, IBM Cloud Data Centers and other existing IBM Bluemix products and services, such as implementation of the Nexmo Voice API with Watson, as illustrated by the Nexmo integration with IBM Watson Project Intu, enabling enhanced productivity, easier collaboration and better use of data for businesses.
Get Started with Nexmo on IBM Bluemix
To help you get started we’ve written a getting started guide for the Bluemix docs that demonstrates how to send SMS using Nexmo on IBM Bluemix with Node.js. This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions and detailed screen captures and shows how to set your credentials, build the application and then deploy it to the IBM Bluemix Cloud Infrastructure.

After finishing the tutorial, you’ll have the foundations in place to build more sophisticated Nexmo integrations into IBM Bluemix. For example, two-factor authentication (2FA) as well as voice, chat and social media communications are all possibilities. More information about the possibilities of the Nexmo APIs can be found on the Nexmo docs.
Besides Node.js, other client libraries are available in Java, .NET, PHP, Python and Ruby. You can get started with Nexmo on Bluemix today.
