Here’s a quick video tour to get you going.

By @Landon Flores Flores, Onboarding Leader and Worldwide Leader of Digital Client Experience — Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud and Cognitive Software

If you or one of your clients is new to IBM Cloud, here’s a handy set of videos to give you a look-see tour of the most-used functions. You’ll learn how to navigate and use the IBM Cloud Console, including how to access and assign different roles, invite users, and efficiently create and access groups. Where else would we start, but with a Welcome video?

Welcome to IBM Cloud

Learn how to easily start building right away with any of the 190+ unique services on the IBM Cloud. First, you’ll see how to set up an account, create resources from the IBM Cloud catalog, then manage them from your resource list. If you just want to try out what’s in the catalog, there’s a “Lite” filter that will return offerings that are free to use.
