To participate in the IBM Power Systems Specialty offering, IBM Business Partners must meet requirements in three areas: skills, client references, and revenue. The requirements differ for Power Systems Specialty and Power Systems Specialty Elite.
In addition, the specific eligibility criteria might vary by country or region, as part of our ongoing effort to deploy offerings tailored to meet the unique business needs of different regions. Please refer to the correct announcement letter for your region for the specific business and skills criteria for Power Systems Specialty and Power Systems Specialty Elite.
You are encouraged to visit the Business Partner Technical Vitality (BPTV) Skills Dashboard tool, which can provide you with a customized gap analysis of your progress in completing the Power Systems Specialty certification skills criteria.
The BPTV tool links to the PartnerWorld Profiling System (PPS), reviews certifications your firm has already completed, and provides you with a gap analysis identifying the certifications your firm still needs to complete. Your Authorized Program Administrator (APA) will have immediate access to BPTV. Your APA might allow additional employees to view the scorecard and dashboard by assigning them the “BPTV General” role in PPS. For additional information, contact PartnerWorld.
