Ready for Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure
NOTICE: The Ready for Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure initiative is being sunset at the end of March 2017. Business Partner participants will be transitioned to other Ready fors such as 'Ready for Watson IoT', 'Ready for IBM Cloud', etc. Detailed information will be provided in March.
Ready for Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure helps demonstrate your solution compatibility with the IBM Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure software solution portfolio and your commitment with IBM to help customers identify and implement integrated cloud and smarter infrastructure applications and solutions.
This technical validation shows that your solutions and applications meet the IBM integration criteria for Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure solutions, including Tivoli Software, Maximo, Netcool, Storage Manager and SmartCloud Orchestration software. Successfully validated solutions can gain valuable exposure to clients and other IBM Business Partners through the ISM Library, Cloud Marketplace, and showcases.
Additional benefits include:
- Clear solution visibility with the Ready for Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure distinction in the Global Solutions Directory, ISM Library, Cloud Marketplace for cloud related solutions, and other showcases.
- The ability to differentiate your solution using the Ready for IBM Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure logo mark in the packaging and marketing materials of qualified offerings.
- The opportunity for promotion of your applications at major global IBM and industry events, in IBM-led social media, and to the IBM seller community.
