“ As we add new features and as user adoption increases, we can be confident that Cloudant will scale up to handle the demand. ”
Wes Wilson, Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder, YukonBaby
Founded at a hackathon in 2014, YukonBaby is a project funded by the Technology Innovation program of the Yukon Research Centre, and the Yukon government’s Health and Social Services department. The YukonBaby team consists of healthcare professionals, educators and developers who are volunteering their time to develop innovative iPhone and Android apps that put pregnancy resources and tools in expecting parents’ pockets.
Healthcare workers in Yukon wanted to find a better way to raise awareness about the resources available for pregnancy and newborn care, especially for communities in remote areas.
YukonBaby developed a mobile app that gives new parents easy access to the latest information and resources both online and offline, based on scalable IBM® Cloud Data Services technology.
The IBM platform gives the YukonBaby developers great flexibility, making it easy to add new features for families across Yukon, and extend the app for use in other cities, regions and contexts.
