4. IBM Cloud

The newest member of the serverless computing game, IBM is similar to Azure but lacks the maturity featured in Microsoft's platform. IBM Cloud is definitely still a contender and has a bright future if they can cater to the needs not catered by the other competitors.

I think Googles Cloud Run, AppEngine and Functions are a major miss here in the article. I would rank them better then aws for ease of use and serverless offerings.
