IBM Systems Application Advantage for Linux (Chiphopper)

Overview

Expand market reach of your commercial Linux applications
Maximize your Linux market opportunity while minimizing your expense. The Chiphopper offering is designed to help IBM Business Partners enable, test and support existing applications onto IBM Systems running Linux and middleware platforms—at no cost.

Ensure client engagements run smoothly with the System Assurance benefit
The systems assurance benefit is active for up to eighteen months once the application has been successfully enabled onto the Linux platform. Your company's support team will then be eligible to receive access to Linux systems and resources, middleware and troubleshooting help with any integration issues that may arise.

Get worldwide exposure for your application
Help differentiate your offering from the competition and gain exposure by listing your solutions in the Global Solutions Directory. The directory, available worldwide in ten languages, is the IBM repository of Business Partner offering information.


Benefit changes for 2013

The Ready for IBM Systems with Linux mark is no longer available for use by new enrollees. Authorized participants may continue to use the Ready for IBM Systems with Linux mark through 31 August 2013. Other benefits for the Chiphopper offering remain intact.
