As our trusted Business Partners you like to be up to date regarding our product portfolio. You've shared with us at numerous meetings and advisory councils that it was becoming difficult to keep up with the ever-increasing depth and breadth of our IBM Software portfolio. If you add in acquisitions and the fact that we sometimes rename products then the 'need' was clear: You wanted "something" that would concisely and succinctly provide an overview of all IBM Software offerings and capabilities, so you could find needed information quickly and easily.
In response, we combined the best facets of our internal "Rainbow Navigator" tool and our 360+ page Software Product Guide, plus some best practices for user functionality to create the IBM Software Products and Capabilities Navigator.
The navigator is now available directly to you via IBM PartnerWorld and provides interactive access to product information, offerings and relationships across the IBM Software portfolio. It also maps out the new Market Categories, like Cloud, Social, Mobile and Big Data Analytics! You can use this valuable tool to learn the full IBM Software portfolio and spark discussion with your clients on the value of IBM Software solutions.
The goal of this handy web page is to help you gain a simple way to navigate through how our solutions and offerings roll-up under each of the following views:
