IBM offers a suite of benefits for qualifying Power Systems Specialty and Specialty Elite Business Partners, designed to help facilitate the development of successful, sustainable IBM Power Systems practices.
IBM intends to support and develop this specialty, and pursue an aggressive growth initiative through this year and beyond, providing additional resources to qualifying Business Partners. In addition, IBM intends to continue to align resources and benefits with Business Partners who actively demonstrate a willingness to invest in IBM skills and resources.
These benefits are available only to IBM Business Partners who are accredited in the IBM Power Systems Specialty, and might vary depending on country or region. Once you qualify for the Power Systems Specialty, your IBM Power Systems practice leader should work with your assigned sales and technical support team to ensure you receive the available benefits.
These benefits are subject to any applicable local laws and regulations, and IBM reserves the right to modify or withdraw a benefit without notice at any time in any or all territories. Use of these benefits is subject to the local IBM PartnerWorld announcement of the Power Systems Specialty, as well as IBM approval, and will be determined by country practice, the availability of local resources, suppliers, and budget.
