IBM Cloud Solutions Partner Incubator is ready to help

Selecting IBM Cloud means more than just a technology partnership. IBM is committed to the success of every Solution Provider integrating our Cloud, Watson, Analytics, and other critical technology components. From helping to nurture newer cloud-based offerings, to speeding the growth of more mature offerings, to driving customer acquisitions, we go beyond the technology to team with our partners so that we both succeed.

We agree with a recent IDC channel report that noted, “By 2020, partner IP will define partner business models—it will be the dominant driver of most partners’ revenue and profitability.” That’s why my team has custom-tailored the IBM Cloud Solutions Partner Incubator program to help ISVs, MSPs, and other companies developing their own IP fully leverage the power, depth, and experience of IBM to speed time to market and reduce time to revenue.

An ongoing partner engagement program

The IBM Cloud Solutions Partner Incubator program enables partners to fully leverage the scope and scale of IBM and its ecosystem. It is a unique, high-touch engagement program that gives partners priority access to IBM Cloud sales, marketing, technical, and other subject matter experts, as well as exclusive sales tools and resources.

The IBM Cloud Solutions Partner Incubator program is custom-tailored for companies leveraging their own IP to do any of the following:

  • Launch new cloud-based offerings

  • Integrate cloud into existing products

  • Provide a core set of cloud managed services

Upon completion of the workshop, partners then gain access to the program’s extensive pool of content, including solutions webinars, industry podcasts, coaching calls, training vouchers, collateral, customer acquisition programs, and more, all accessible live or on-demand via the Incubator Community Portal.
