In a move to boost its business partners in the cloud and cognitive era, IBM introduced a redesigned IBM PartnerWorld program and digital experience at the PartnerWorld Leadership Conference.
Under the redesigned IBM PartnerWorld program, the company aims to provide Business Partners with education tailored toward cognitive solutions that IBM and Business Partners can sell.
It is also designed to accelerate skills development they need to deliver value to clients. Additionally, it recognizes and rewards Business Partners with more predictable performance incentives.
As part of the redesign, IBM is also making a significant investment with new Business Partners, introducing a Skill Pack offering with education, support offerings, as well as a test voucher to aid in accelerating their time to market.
Additionally, new competencies will be offered to Business Partners to support their transition to growth areas with increased opportunities.
“Digital business combined with digital intelligence is fundamentally changing companies, professions and industries,” said Marc Dupaquier, General Manager, IBM Global Business Partners.
“IBM is accelerating our transformation by helping Business Partners capture emerging business models, build deeper expertise and at the same time, broaden our reach to attract new Business Partners.”
