Ready for IBM SmartCloud Services can help you demonstrate your commitment to quality in the IT cloud industry and show your customers that your solution meets IBM validation criteria for the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise, IBM SmartCloud Enterprise+, and SmartCloud Application Services public cloud offerings.
After your solution is validated, you can display the mark on your web page and marketing materials of your qualified offerings to help generate greater interest in your solution and demonstrate that your solution meets IBM SmartCloud validation criteria.
As a validated provider, you can gain valuable exposure to clients, other IBM Business Partners, and the IBM sales network. After you list your solution in the Global Solutions Directory and nominate the entry for validation, we will work with you to verify your results and notify you of the outcome.
Note: As IBM moves from SmartCloud Enterprise to SoftLayer, the existing IBM PartnerWorld Ready for SmartCloud Services validation offering will be withdrawn on 1 Jan 2014. You will need to remove the Ready for IBM SmartCloud Services mark from your websites before 1 Jan 2014 and from all printed collateral before 31 Jan 2014.
If you are a member of PartnerWorld with a solution that runs on IBM SmartCloud Enterprise, IBM SmartCloud Enterprise+, or SmartCloud Application Services, you are eligible to participate.
