IBM Platinum Partner Status Demonstrates Excellence in Delivering High Value Cloud and Cognitive Solutions
Logicalis UK, the international IT solutions and managed services provider, has achieved Platinum status in IBM’s new PartnerWorld program redesigned for the Cognitive era. Earning the highest tier within the PartnerWorld program, Platinum Business Partners consistently demonstrate proven capabilities and expertise in IBM technologies to help their clients succeed in their digital transformation.
Bob Swallow, Managing Director, Logicalis UK, comments, “We’re proud to be awarded the highest status of IBM’s PartnerWorld program. This level of industry recognition is invaluable, and further proof of our continued commitment to the IBM relationship and our vision to accelerate and enable digital transformation for our customers through innovative technology solutions. IBM’s approach to the market underpins our own focus on Hybrid IT, Digital Workplace, Information Insights and Security, delivered through our leading services capabilities, and we look forward to further success with IBM in these areas.”
IBM added the Platinum designation as part of the newly redesigned PartnerWorld program, which the company announced last February at the PartnerWorld Leadership Conference. The new, four-tiered PartnerWorld program moves IBM and its Business Partners from a product-centric model to one focused on competencies, customer satisfaction and revenue. The Platinum level is designed to recognize partners that consistently deliver the highest level of excellence. Organisations achieve the Platinum level by earning at least two competencies (one at the Expert level), attaining significant sales success, demonstrating client satisfaction and verifying two client references.
“The new PartnerWorld program is designed towards ultimate simplification to help our partners both large and small succeed and drive velocity in high growth areas like cloud and cognitive,” said Marc Dupaquier, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners. “By achieving the Platinum level, Logicalis UK has shown its commitment and expertise in delivering client solutions with the power to transform businesses in the cognitive era.”
