Get your Ready for IBM Analytics mark and go to market

Once your solution validation is approved, you will be contacted to accept the entitlement and download the mark. Use it widely on collateral and your website. You’ll be contacted for inclusion in additional programs by the Ready for IBM Analytics team.

The Ready for IBM Analytics program is a technical validation program for Business Partner solutions that access IBM technology. The Ready for IBM Analytics program was designed to help you test your solutions with one or more components of the IBM Analytics portfolio and help you enhance your technology value proposition by consulting with IBM technical experts who are skilled in solution integration.

Upon completion, you will receive the Ready for IBM Analytics mark, which can be used to differentiate your offering from the competition and show that your solution meets key IBM integration standards. Even better, this new program gets you on the fast track to global awareness with IBM clients, prospects, and sellers.
