Each year, the IBM Beacon Awards
recognize IBM Business Partners who have raised
the standard for delivering innovative solutions and exemplary client
satisfaction. They highlight innovation and achievement across a wide-range of solutions and markets that support the Smarter
Planet initiative. And of course, the winning solutions must demonstrate a high level of client value by
addressing real business issues.
The PartnerWorld Leadership Conference
