Technical Sales Support is the key to either excellent sales growth or failure. In the rapidly changing x86 marketplace, you are asked to remain on the cutting edge and drive new opportunities and innovation into our clients' solutions.

This is a heavy request and IBM wants to support you in your success. The IBM Systems Connect eXpert program is here specifically to help you in two critical ways.

1. Grow your depth of knowledge and experience by providing deep learning opportunities. You can validate your expert skills with certifications.

2. Stay current on the many critical applications, products and solutions that our clients are asking for.

Let us prepare you for the "next big thing", with current education from industry innovators, advance topics and refresher education on demand, and resources to support your efforts.

Start by enrolling in the program. You will be asked to log on to PartnerWorld.

Obtain your first technical certification. This ensures you are developing your technical expertise. (If you are more focused on selling, review the Sales tab and decide which track is better for you.) Follow the roadmap found in the Technical Certification Path button located in the left navigation bar after signing in.

As you gain experience in the field, take additional certification tests to show how much of an expert you really are! (To learn more about the Value of Certification for IBM Business Partners click here to view a short module.)

To keep your skills current, we suggest that at least two lectures be taken each half year at a minimum. The lectures in the Education Pools will develop your knowledge of the key initiatives that IBM is driving into the marketplace. When you deliver the same messages to your clients that IBM is driving, we all win.

Sales support is critical, and knowledge is the fuel that drives success!
