IBM's Beacon Awards were established more than a dozen years ago to recognize IBM Business Partners globally for their excellence and innovative solutions based on IBM technology. In 2014, more than 25 awards will be given, recognizing Business Partner achievement across a wide-range of solution areas.
I strongly encourage you to submit a nomination for this year's award, entitled: "Demonstrate Greater Business Impact with Social Business Best Practices" at https://www.ibm.com/partnerworld/page/pw_com_prb_beacon_awards_solutions#demonstrate.
This award recognizes an IBM Business Partner who helped their customers create greater business impact as a result of deploying social business capabilities including digital experience, cloud, collaboration, and mobile. Business Partners can submit new or existing social business solutions that have delivered compelling business results by bringing together people, business processes, social tools and best practices. The Business Partner's solution must include IBM social capabilities, and the submission must include examples of measurable business results.
In addition there are resources available to help guide you in submitting your entries and we encourage you to get started right away. Nominations can be saved as a draft as you work to complete each of the entry requirements.
To be selected for an IBM Beacon Award is your opportunity to be recognized for business excellence, leadership, and client satisfaction. We sincerely hope you will consider sharing your success story by submitting your entries before November 15, when nominations close. In keeping with tradition, the presentation of the Beacon Award winners will once again take place at the PartnerWorld Leadership Conference (PWLC) scheduled for February 10-13, 2014, at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Be sure to save the dates on your calendar and plan to join us at PWLC!
We look forward to hearing from you as you submit your Beacon Award nomination.
